THE ALMOST DELETED

This one image pretty much sums up my emotions toward the beach.

Although a seagull flew right in front of my lens as I snapped the shutter, I love it still.

The birds. The wave caps. The glistening sun on top of the water. The wind surfer. The white sand. Blue skies. Cotton-esque clouds. It is the sea at its best. You can almost hear the seagulls a squawkin' and the waves lapping as you stare at the image. I shot this when I was at the beach with my Mom yesterday. It's always those clicks of the shutter which you think will be "trashed" when you get back home that end up being some of your favorite shots E-V-A-H. Because of the bird crossing in front of my lens, I almost deleted it. However, I have this hard and fast rule that I NEVER delete an image on the back of my camera until after I've gotten home and uploaded it to my computer first. It is because of the way I fall in love with the "scraps, the trashed images, etc." that I can't bare to hit the delete button until I've seen them on my computer screen first. This image was no different. I'm so very glad that I opted to hang on to it for a few more seconds before ultimately trashing it.

This desolate piece of beach property was my Mom's and my haven yesterday. It was breezy, peaceful, sunny, and as vast as the eyes could see. The golden rays of heat left me with just enough color to prove I'd been there for the past two days.

I was told that Indy has had some snow flurries fall there today. With that said, I'd just like to take this moment to say..."Thank you God for Naples, Florida!"

xoxo, Angie

Angie, You all are a praying family. Please pray for River of Life Church (http://www.rolc.cc) in Indianapolis. We are a small church and we are giving away 13,000 lbs of groceries on Dec. 19 to those that are in need. Information on our website too. Pray that this will turn people to God through this event and that it will be a blessing to them. If you want to help pass the word that would be great! We may not need it but we might know someone who does. KLOVE (http://www.klove.com) and Air 1 (http://www.air1.com/), which is a national radio station, will be broadcasting live that day as well.
I enjoy reading your blogs.

Wonderful picture! Great suggestion about not deleting a picture until you see it on the "big screen."
