Sometimes I try not to take pictures when I go places. But it just doesn’t work. It doesn’t feel natural to look at something beautiful or interesting and not be able to take a little picture home with me. Sometimes I worry that I’m missing out on an experience because I’m looking through a viewfinder or only have one hand free. But I don’t think either of those are true. I think the camera helps me see more. I think it helps me take in sights and sounds in a different way, in a more impactful way. Does that make sense? I know it annoys some, and some don’t get it, but that’s okay. It all makes life that much more interesting. I feel like I appreciate all of these little moments a little more deeply.
Which is why I don’t feel too bad about posting new beach photos every day.
I hope you don’t mind.
Because I couldn’t stop the clicking.
These, though, are the last shots of my four days in Fort Bragg, one of my new favorite places on the planet. I really do hope you enjoy them.
