I attended a field trip to some local tidepools with my daughter’s class.  This was a great opportunity to practice my photography.  One mom, another amateur photographer, focused all her shots on candids of the kids — to great success.  I am, on the other hand, drawn to landscapes.  As I’ve mentioned, I would really like to improve my people-shooting skills.

The thrill of the day -- that is an OCTOPUS! A marine biologist mom who accompanied us said it was extremely rare to see one at low tide.
