Black and white linky.


This week the photo I have chosen is a recent one. I took it last week during a family day out to the seaside. We had a really lovely day – we live quite near the sea anyway,mbut last week was the first time Amelia loved the sea (literally loved it, she could have played for hours).

And it was Amelia’s first donkey ride on the beach. I snapped this photo, and love it as to me it represents a tradition – donkey rides on the beach, while not for everyone, were part of the excitement of my days out to the beach growing up, and Amelia too was very excited about going on a donkey.

In this photo I love the small details in the sand in the foreground, and that the sea can be seen in the background. I also like that only a small section of the donkeys can be seen, not all of them. It’s not the usual way I take a photo but something about it works for me.

I’ve joined in with podcast dove and the black and white linky.
