As I sat on the beach last week I watched a father a daughter walk out to the waves. She looked about 13 years old, cut off sweats, UGG boots, messy hair, random t-shirt, his back was to me. Then he turned around revealing one of the biggest cameras I've ever seen! I quickly looked at the surf, "what is he here to capture?" There were no surfers, no dolphins at the moment, I was confused. When I looked back at them I noticed that he was taking pictures of her! She was awkward and shy and for heaven's sake her outfit was horrible. What were they doing? They giggled and about 5 minutes later he said, "wanna go home and look at the pictures?" She nodded and off they went, smiling and laughing. I sat there still a little confused and then it hit me. It wasn't about the perfect outfit or the perfect pose, it was just about a simple everyday life moment. It was his daughter - what could be a better picture?
Just me and little dude on our way out the door to the market. He's smiling because he knows he's about to get a doughnut! Just an everyday moment, and it's perfect!
