Many of you also follow our Facebook page, where you guys are kind enough to share some of your best or more compelling photographs of your time at the beach. It is something we never get tired of seeing. We try and share as many as we can with the rest of the world. Even though we don’t get to all of them, we do look at all of them. It is that spirit that we present these shared Facebook photos that represent some of the better photos we saw this week (along with a gratuitous plug from your author at the end).
Remember, if you don’t follow us, please do. And if you do, keep sharing all your great photos, even those from summers past. We love seeing them.
Cute kids doing cute things
The whale has been in more photos recently. People really seem to enjoy playing on it as well as photographing it, which is no great wonder. Keeping things fun is what beach and boardwalk photography should be about.
Cool (and composed)
This was one of the most popular photos we shared this week, and for good reason. It’s beachy and has a late sunrise (which always is fun), but more important, it uses elements of the hotel as framing. All those pointy lines make it a little more attention-getting.
One of the people who usually shares her great photos on our Facebook page took a day trip to the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore and got a ton of great shots. She was kind enough to share them on a Maryland.com photoblog.
Sometimes less is more
The black and white filter is often underrepresented on the boardwalk. The colors just beg to pop, which is why it is so cool to see a youngster embracing black and white at such a time.
It’s an iconic shot ’cause it never gets old
We love this angle and this time. Also, sunset from the other side, mid-day, dusk, dawn, you get the picture. What makes this cool is that it is super quiet. Even though the season isn’t completely over, it is easier than ever to get those silent beach moments that will be commonplace in another two months.
A mild indulgence
This was my favorite photo that I took this week. Mostly because I love taking pictures of people looking at cellphones. Unfortunately, the picture only enhances the story, it doesn’t tell one of its own. Anyway, I liked it.
Finally, don’t be afraid to share videos!
We love all of your takes on the beach and the waves and general goings on.
