I know today is all about 911 and that most people will be talking about that horrific event in American History.  It is burned into my memory mainly because I had a little girl in kindergarten at the time and I can recall vividly rushing to her school with all of the other panicked moms.  Hugging my Muslim friends who had removed their Hijabs out of fear of attack.  It was indeed awful.  Explaining that to a child was beyond comprehension.

(In fact, several waves washed over my feet and I almost got myself stranded out on a set of rocks!) It didn’t seem to matter where you pointed your camera…there was a beautiful scene there just waiting to be captured.

I apologize that this series of pictures is so long. Moreover, there will be one other set and then a third, where some fisheye shots are compared to their straightened counterparts. But honestly, I could post this many again; we had a devil of a time whittling the list down to these.

As to special photography days like this, my motto is now: Luck—don’t hope for it, count on it!

Before viewing the photographs, I would also…
