Ella Meets the Ocean

Last summer when she was little more than one year old, Ella came to know the Pacific Ocean: Location: Imperial Beach, California.

  2. Thank you Wildblack. To me that picture speaks of a mother walking beside her child as she “heads into life.” Mother can go part of the way, show, direct, instruct, but soon baby is on her own, finding her way.

    Sad. Happy.

    I’m really struck by the first photo as well. Tiny fingers charged with joy! Just gorgeous and very soothing.

    • Thank you Blissful for coming by and taking a look at my things. Ella is my grandchild and that afternoon I watched her press her way into life and was struck by so much: Especially did I think of her innocence and complete unawareness of the challenges this ragged world will offer her. She’s up to it though; has a caring family, and within her little chest beats the spirit of a tiger.
