hehheeh .. this makes me think of my 3 year old niece.. I took her to the beach for the FIRST time in her life, last June. and she LOOVED it as much as I do! She was afraid to approach the ocean alone at first. so she gripped my hand tight and squealed.. then . she loooved it! :):) Aahhh the memories we create with our loved ones!! :):) she thinks it was a big day for her.. she has no idea it was just as huge and wonderful for ME to be apart of it!!! :):)

You are so right - they have no idea :) I don't even know this little girl but watching her watch the ocean with such amazement - I just had to capture it. I even sent the mom the picture and a few others that were just perfect for the moment.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Ocean City, MD. The little girl was standing there watching the waves hit the beach (you can't see that in the pic). As the waves hit the beach - she got so excited. Yet, during the pauses of waves - she just stood there patiently waiting for the next.
Time
It was about 5pm with the sun right behind us. For me - the perfect amount of light.
Lighting
I love early morning or early evening natural light and this was in early evening with just the right amount of daylight
Equipment
Nikon D600 and that's it
Inspiration
Just watching the little girl look at the ocean with such amazement - I couldn't help myself - after I received permission from her mom :)
Editing
Very little, just converted it to B & W and tweaked it a bit.
In my camera bag
Camera, a few lenses, flash, spare batteries & spare discs
Feedback
Sometimes it just one of those - "you had to be there" moments.
