Jump the Pier Annie!

The beach was beautiful today.
Took my camera for a short visit. Had it on spot metering and just shot a few. The lighting under the pier was unusually well lit. Today my son jumped off the end of the pier. He said that as soon as you climb over the railing, for some reason it seems even higher than before. Oh yeah-- I can only imagine! They were videotaped so that they could learn from mistakes. He came home with Annie the adult dummy for CPR and her baby, Annabelle. I set them in the bar stools at our kitchen island. I think they're happy. Not breathing, but happy. My daughter walked in and saw them and she got a bit freaked out. I had to holler, "Annie, Annie, are you okay?" Annie was a bit freaked too.

Loaning out a Camera to a Seventeen Year Old?

Interesting question from my 17 year old son last week. 
"Mom, can I borrow your camera?"
Without completely telling him I didn't trust him, I informed him that there wasn't enough money in his account to cover the replacement cost. He vowed to take great care and off he went. Here are some pics that he took. The first photo was at the Newport Beach Jetty. The wave started out as a small barely-to-his-waist wave and grew into this massive snow covered wall.

These next photos were from another day at the Huntington Beach Cliffs.

I'm glad I loaned it to him. I'm also glad it didn't break.
