After shooting towards the main stretch of the Grande Plage I glanced down from the bridge where I was standing to see this little girl, seemingly all by herself, but having the time of her life playing in the sand & surf. It was quite an innocent type of moment when you remember that life was much simpler as a child. The only thing needed to be entertained was an imagination.
I love it when I’m lucky enough to catch something unexpected like this by simply taking a extra look around at my surroundings before I rush off in search of the next shot. I guess patience really is a virtue!?
Happy weekend to all!

I like the idea of minimalism in this shot of the little girl dancing alone on the wide beach
The left side across the diagonal has its sand a bit darker, thus avoiding too much uniformity
Bravo, have a nice day

Well spotted the moment, Jason, and well placed the girl dancing off-center pic. space.
Clarity is super, especially with the footprints on sand.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
