There are times when I set out to photograph people. Other times, people finds me. Just like this one time when we drove up to Capitola just to have a wonderful day out. I was done shooting the water and landscape shots. At the end of the pier there was a restaurant that featured live music. I was ready to just soak up the sun and listen to the rhythmic sound filling the area. Until a group to teenagers walked in all happy and smiling. I got curious and followed them at the end of the pier and saw they were there for a kayaking trip. Curiously I noticed there wasn't any adult with them.
What a cool experience for a child to be kayaking.
The child was smiling here.
All of a sudden she fell into the water, which I was too slow to capture. I must have been scared for that's why I froze. But she got scooped immediately and was put in the middle of the kayak.
The other people in the group had no trouble.
There were cheers from those who stayed behind.
There were also paddleboarders on the water that time.
Finally on the way out, I made the camera work out some more to photograph surfers chilling on their boards waiting for the big one.
OUR WORLD TUESDAY.
