This could have been a scene from The Perfect Storm but was actually taken at Laguna Beach. This was back in 2008 when I started to take photography more seriously. One thing I learned the hard way was that one should never change their lens while on the beach. Being a complete digital novice, I did so with the wind gusting right on my face. I realized later on that the dust bunnies have sneaked inside the camera when I was changing lens. Finding the sensor as a warm toasty haven, the dust bunnies decided to settle there. You may notice the shadows of these critters appearing in areas on the clouds. I tried to clean them up but there is only so much one can do. I shall declare them as "effects" as though they were intended to be there.
I suppose I am feeling much better so I decided to post again. Lately, I've been noticing a lot of changes in me. I used to be able to work on the yard for hours with no issues. Now, I have to watched myself. My latest mishap was a stern warning that I am not 18 years old anymore -- although I may still think like one. Note to self: "Life is too short. The birds will take care of the yard."
