Description Crisp and Clear. Take note of the individuals spread out amongst the foam of the ocean. The anticipation of the next wave creates a sense of awe for the participants in this image. Let yourself be taken back to the lazy days of summer in this fasinating portrait of human 'activities' during their leisure time. Imagine for a moment that you are part of the scene, do you anticipate the next wave?
Tom Hawkins, Santa Monica Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Please enjoy my Unique Photographic Art of beach scenes from around the world. The images in this gallery are beach scenes from Australia and California. Simple scenes of families and friends enjoying themselves while at a day at the beach. The Australian pictures were taken during Christmas at Bondi and Bronte Beach in 2005. The California pictures were taken at Santa Monica during the summer of 2008.
Imagine yourself within each scene; the hot sun blazing down at you, the scent of the salty air as it wafts past you, the smell of suntan lotion and the sounds of families enjoying themselves at the beach. As you stare at each photo see if you can listen in on the conversations being had on the beach. What do you hear?
