Brent, a marvelous departure from your usual wonderful surfing photos. I think it tells a story; It is a loving mom sharing words of wisdom with her child. She may be saying that, like the advancing and receding tide, life will have its ups and downs that one experiences in life’s journey. Or she may point to those footprints in the sand and point out that,good or bad, large or small, we all leave our mark, on the world around us.
Oh Beowulf, what a wonderful way to view and digest this image! Thanks for your thoughts.
