Was going to post this last night but had to fly to Sydney for a funeral and just couldnt drag myself on here after that trip..
I caught a series of shots on Saturday with this pair making a two foot high sand castle. They didnt have any buckets etc so decided to carry some water the hard way...Thomas giving directions on where to drop it of course..They later resorted to using their hats..Two guesses how much sand was still in the hats when they put them back on their heads... Some shots are just made for b&w.

Hi Fiona...nice black and white shot with an "old time" feel...well done.


Hello Wacky

I like the sharpness of the boys. The note helps to convey the actual story of what we are seeing. I like your use of what is so dear to you..........your children. Nice

Ha! Ha! I'm amazed he got that far with the water still in his hand. B&W works well with this composition Fiona we can see who's in charge.

Hi Fiona,
Extremely funny: the commander-in-chief and the carrier of water fascinated with the content in his hands.
This is a clear and sharp photo that captures the moment with perfection.
If you hadn't given us an back story, this photo would not lose any credit, because it entices the viewers imagination.

Hello Fiona, I do like these images of life from the beach.
The b/w is the perfect medium imo.
Excellent sharp focusing on your boys.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Ciao Fiona, lovely B&W composition with cute children, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
