I was scouting out locations for an upcoming photo shoot next week; I visited a local beach park suggested by a friend and I was pleasantly surprised. The park is small but offers ample opportunity for great photographs. There is a beach area with a nice high sandy seawall, a couple of narrow docks, benches, small re-servable pavilions, grassy nooks, and crisp white sparkling sand. Wild sea oats and yellow flowers grow randomly in small patches near the seawall.
A trio of kids playing there caught my lens. They were walking and hiding from each other in the grassy patches.
while their mother sat nearby at the shore line with an infant in her arms. I took way too many pictures of these kids and truly regret not having gotten the mother’s contact information so I could get these images to her. They were great!

Along my journey to find cool shooting spots and just a few minutes from major highways, and urban life, I found a secluded place where my imagination ran wild. My mind wasted no time transforming this locale into a myriad of mystical scenes.
The area is thick with trees making it an ideal spot for playful poses, and whimsical compositions.
It is absolutely secluded, as I believe the property is up for sale. What a shame that some corporate purchase will transform this delightful place into yet another cookie-cutter extension of the cement jungle.
The way the light filters through the trees adds interest and mystique.
The shadows cast as a result of this affect are dramatic and can be used to effect the mood of the final photograph. I can’t wait to place my subject in this setting and let my lens play with the images.
