My Flickr contact chris schroeer-heiermann posted this terrific shot of Shi-shi beach on the west side of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, taken with his Canon PowerShot S95.
My flickr contact Nicolas Cazard posted this great image of his daughter (I think) and a seagull on the southern coast of Spain. Taken with his Fuji X-T1. Incredible timing, beautifully framed.
My flickr contact Charlie Nowlan took this great minimalist landscape on Uttakeiv Beach, Norway.
Santa Monica beach.
While in Los Angeles, Anne and I took some time out to take a walk along the Venice boardwalk heading north up to Santa Monica. We took a diversion out on the sand and went down to the water and found some mounds of washed up kelp.
I’d forgotten how photogenic sea life like kelp can be. Edward and Brett Weston were certainly on to something.
While the Venice boardwalk with its colorful cast of characters is a street shooter’s dream, I prefer the un-pretentious kelp.
My flickr contact Alex Newman posted this terrific image from Seminyak beach, Bali taken with his Ricoh GR.
One of the many things that’s outstanding about this image is the framing: both the child and the woman looking in from the edge of the frame. Bleeding or frame violation is a terrific technique and I need to consider it more as I almost never use it in photography while I use it all the time in graphic design work I do.
Flickr member Mark Candlin posted this excellent shot of Pembrookshire Beach, UK, taken with his Fuji X-Pro1.
Fantastic detail in the waves and shadows.
My flickr contact Christophe FROT posted this wonderful image of a collection of shells on the Normandy, France coast.

My flickr contact Dimuth Perera took another image of these towers on a beach in Kuwait. The light on the towers is fantastic.
