so glad this will be changing soon!

Grazie Dio!

So ... in the midst of burning dvd's and cd's and sending out invoices ... i took a moment to look thru some lab-scans.

i saw this one.

i remembered walking down ... or up ... hmm ... don't remember ... the pier in santa monica. 'twas a beautiful day. we'd had lots of rain and this was the first day which was so typically california and beautiful.

in fact, a los angeles times photographer made a photo of all the people on the beach and the late-midday-sun and the waves and the trees ... all which is so california.

i made a similar photograph.

but ... i liked this one-off.

she looks to be like two or three ... perhaps it's not the first time she's seen the ocean or waves or the throngs of people ...

i remember the first time i was with my daughter when she saw a duck ... a giraffe ... a sunset ...

'twas so cool.

i hope that's what going on in this photo!

This almost made me cry. You've captured the feelings and atmosphere of a daughter and her dad sharing a precious moment together so well. This really reminded me of when I was little and my dad would carry me around like that. And we both loved nature :<3:

I swear I was ready to start crying when I saw this ;w; I used to live in LA and my dad used to take me to the pier so much (at least once a week) and I can't tell you how many times I've been standing right where they're standing. It really strikes the heart, I remembered everything when I saw this picture: the many weekends my dad and I would go to the arcade, the time we spent just staring at the ocean, the school days we'd get to the school entrance and my dad would say: "Want to go to the pier?" and like that no school that day, just a half empty pier all to us. I really love this :3 I can see the street they're standing on so vividly in my mind ouo Thank you for the pleasant reminder and wondeful shot C:

I need to stop commenting because I'm probably being annoying, but wow. This is perfect, the darks are deep and rich, but still full of detail, and the highlights are soft and ethereal. Not to even mention the emotional impact. beautiful :heart:

Very expressive shots!
Do you ask people before to take the pict, or you stay discreet and make it?

This is a beautiful moment captured. That little girl is quite lucky, having a father like that.
