My friend Elizabeth and I headed down to the beach last week when we had one of those rare cloudy evenings (quite rare so, in the summer) that is a photographers paradise. I was a little anxious because one of my friends lost his camera to the Ocean just the weekend before, when a rogue wave during high tide hit him and engulfed his camera and himself while he was trying to snap a shot. I was actually right behind him and my instinct was to save my own camera first. Priorities right?
So here I am, less than a week later, back at the beach at high tide again, with a friend who can’t swim, no less.
Luckily I didn’t have to make any decisions of what/whom to save this time.
