Thematic Photographic 21 - Happy: At the Beach



A new Thematic Photographic theme is posted for the week. For the next few days we are looking for happy subjects, which really isn't very difficult, and definitely fun!
For me the beach is a very happy place. I don't get to visit the ocean beaches very often, but when I do the camera is usually at the ready. Last February we were at Virginia Beach on a blustery day. The water was cold but this little boy was quick footed and stayed a step ahead of the waves. The dog was much braver and frolicked in the surf. He was fun to watch, going out to meet a wave then swimming and leaping as if he was trying to beat the wave to shore.
Join us in our happy place this week with photos of your happy-ness. Visit Carmi at Written Inc. for the rules. Please be sure to read the comments and click on the links to other's happy photos, like the one that made Ken smile.

These are happy and wonderful!

I do like that they are in black and white. I think it helps us look more closely at the subjects and see their expressions more intimately. Nice, Barb!

These are great. There is something magical about the beach. For me, the weather makes no difference, I always find the beach a source of happiness.

the dog launching from the waves made me laugh....our dogs are terrified of the ocean.
