Sometimes it's just fun to post process your images to black and white.
I would like to sit here and tell you I waited for hours for just the right light and just the right moment to capture this image of a little girl going up to Santa. Sorry, the fact is, I did want this shot, I composed it, I thought about how I wanted it to look with the surfboards in the background. It would have been a pretty nice shot. It wasn't until I got home and looked at the file that I noticed the little girl stepping into my frame, not ruining my shot, but making it WAY better! My point is, sometimes it doesn't come down to skill or how many years you've been making photos, sometimes, it's just good ole' fashioned luck. So here it is below, one of my favorite photos from the Surfin Santas contest Cocoa Beach, FL 2014
