Water, Water Everywhere

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Muse.”

There are certain subjects that I constantly take pictures of, like my dogs,

Drooling.

and, of course, my love (who is also my muse, but rarely allows me to photograph him).

My best friend.

However, one thing that I am perpetually amazed by– and take photos of every chance I get!– is the Pacific Ocean.

Being near such an extensive and vast body of water is humbling, to say the least, but it is also empowering.

More of the Pacific.

Dipping my toes in the water feels like going home. It feels like hitting the refresh button.

Even more of the Pacific.
Even more of the Pacific.

Breathing in the salty air causes my true soul to resurface and renews my hope for the future.

Those crashing waves that dance eternally with the coast remind me of childhood, and waiting impatiently until summer to jump into that first wave. I hope that every opportunity I get, I will wade into the water and reconnect with Mother Ocean.

I’ll tell you everything about living free.
