Red on My California Beach

in hive-174578 •  7 months ago 

I used to live in Coronado California and have a very short walk to the beach. This was my go-to place to recharge and I went there for walks many times a week.

When I took a stock photography class online we had a challenge to choose a color and a theme and get two photos that showed them combined.

I chose red and the beach, and as I was walking thought maybe I had made a mistake. Where was I going to find red on the beach at dawn? I thought I might be in for a long day.

Instead I found these two shots within a moment of getting to the sand. Apparently a red-themed wedding had taken place the night before.

My first shot showed some shoes someone kicked off and forgot to retrieve.

Was it the bride, a maid of honor, or a guest?

My second shot is of a single petal of many that had been thrown. Right to the side of this shot were hundreds more of these petals, but I decided to show just the one in my photo. I like how the petal is heart shaped and was not ruined overnight.

The second photo was featured in the round up post for the next week. The teacher liked my simplicity, so I was glad I had chosen only the one instead of the many petals.

I’m entering @socalsteemit’s weekly Show Us Your California Contest with this post. Show us your California, and you can enter too.

I used a Canon ELPH160 point and shoot camera for these photos.

Thank you so much, @rynow. And for the trdo :) I appreciate your help so much.

Hello @fitinfun, what a good choice you made, from the beginning when I looked at your photo I was struck by the little red dot in the sand.

And I had to concentrate on his image to realize that it was a rose petalo, that good that tells the story to understand how I stop in that place that beautiful petalo.

you can participate in the contest: there will be a competition for me too, I haven't studied any photography but I always liked it.

Nice to stop by. Greetings.
