My daughter and two of her friends asked if I would take them to the beach this evening to watch the sunset.  Since I'd had a very busy week, I thought it was a perfect spur-of-the-moment idea!  While they poked along the beach and took pictures of each other, I took pictures of them.  They played in the waves, watched the birds skittering along the sand, and they even buried a dead fish.  As the sun set, I caught them jumping off this concrete slab.  They were giggling and chatting and just enjoying each others' company.  I'm so glad I gave in to their spur-of-the-moment request!

Glory and greatness

I've never seen a rainbow like this before.  I was out doing a senior portrait session this morning and we were waiting out a rain shower.  I was sitting under the tree and saw the faint impression of the larger rainbow, but from where I was sitting, I couldn't see the second rainbow closer to the horizon.  As the rain let up, I decided to go get a shot of the larger rainbow.  Imagine my surprise when I saw the vivid second rainbow underneath.  Life lesson - sometimes greatness isn't always apparent.  You have to get up and go see what's really there.
