I'm Dreaming of Some White Beaches...

Sigh, I miss the beach. It's been 2+ years with no sand between my toes.

It is bloody stinkin' freezing here and I bundle to stay warm.

And dream on the sea and the surf warming my skin in the sun.

Hope that our next vacation can include a beach.

Thinking I'll take on the 52 week selfie challenge. Here's my first week with an overlay shot. And here is the info on the challenge if anyone is intersted in trying it out: https://365project.org/discuss/themes-competitions/30856/52-portraits-of-me-challenge



@suesmith @calm Thanks for your comments, ladies. I decided to change out the photo, though...used another beach overlay.

Thought for a minute you must have been in the UK - it's flipping cold here too right now! This combination works very well

Very cool image!

Super image. You will have to visit our part of the world, summer here in the Southern Hemisphere and our house 200 metres from the beach.

Lovely photo. Can't imagine being so long without being near a beach....but living in Scotland we're never far from the sea.....
Not necessarily warm and sunny but still grateful I can walk there any weekend I feel like it. I'm having a go at the 52 portraits of me......Will be interesting record of life.

@sarah19 I grew up in FL and then lived in California. Now I am landlocked. It's hard. Glad you will do the 52 portraits, too!

I understand your feelings. I also need warm weather. Ehm... I mean... hot weather. ;-)

Wonderful selfie and cool processing with the overlay..

You look chilly! Nice selfie. I could sure use a warm beach, too.

I look forward to seeing your results!

That's a long time without a trip to a beach - you definitely need to visit one in 2018!

nicely done... love the subtly of the overlay!
posted January 4th, 2018  
That is very well done, I didn't catch what the overlay was until the 3rd look! Excellent!! I planned a trip to Myrtle Beach for July. Need to stay bundled up until then :(
