An unusually warm late February day here in NC. The fishermen didn’t seem to mind.
The shapes that are made speak to me.
Back in March we were staying in one of the beach houses on Camp Lejeune when I spotted this gentleman setting up for a sunrise shot. I was on the balcony sipping coffee still undecided if I wanted to participate as well. What got me motivated was I saw what I thought were wings on his tripod legs. So I loaded up my Yashicha and made my way down onto the beach. Come to find out, after some conversation, he was a retired Airman from Ashville enjoying the beach for a few days as well. Also, the "wings" on his tripod legs were umbrella bags you can find at some businesses to put your wet umbrella in. Genius.
As I sit here on the couch wrapped in a blanket I think of this warm day on Cedar Island, on my birthday.
Getting caught in the rain shortly after this felt refreshing.
I find mornings on the beach to be most peaceful. There are your occasionally fishermen and a mother and her daughter that show up with their dog but for the most part peaceful.
