The Beach

Photographing the beach never gets old. It's as alive as the inhabitants perched on top of it. In urban areas throngs of strangers carry coolers and umbrellas to claim their patch of ocean-front property. They may be crammed in ass to elbow, but somehow everyone fits. And, then there are the private beaches...so spacious, yet accommodate so few. My favorite, the “once in a life time” destinations where people travel great distances to claim their sliver of fantasy.  

As the sun sets, the story changes. In the absence of human activity the beach provides a different stage...a dream, a wasteland, a memory.
