Oddly enough, even though this is one of my favoite photos, I almost trashed this. I tried to take a picture of her iris, but instead my camera focused on her lashes and made her iris somewhat out of focus. When I realized that it wasn't really the shot I was looking for I almost deleted it, but then I noticed the detail in her skin and lashes, and I automatically fell in love with this photo.

I was wandering around my back yard trying to find something to photograph (with no avail), when I turned around and this hit me like a bag of bricks. It had been there the whole time just sitting in front of me, and I guess I was too focused to notice it. Only a small amount of editing was done.

Hide and Seek in the Dunes
In Port Mansfield Texas about 20 miles off the Gulf Coast, there's a tiny little island out in the middle of the water consisting of nothing but enormous sand dunes, hence the name Sand Dune Island. I go there about 2 or 3 times a year, and it's been a tradition ever since I can remember to have a game of ultimate Hide and go Seek. THe dunes pictured here are some of the smallest.

In the beginning, I just took this when I was goofing around with my camera after I realized that it had a macro setting. Then I looked at it, and fell in love. Eyes are just so fascinating, aren't they?
