About 3 years ago I bought a Nikon camera so we could capture better photographs of the kids, but mostly all it’s done is sit in the carrying case. Tonight I dusted it off and took it with us to the beach.
If you’re looking for evening fun, Fort Myers Beach is a great place to visit on Friday or Saturday nights. While the kids were excited to splash in the waves and play soccer on the beach, I was excited to play around with the camera. Here are some of my shots:
We picked a shady spot under the pier to sit.
The beach is the best place for a soccer match. I love the sound of the waves in the background.
Ice Cream Time! Our flavor picks of the night: butter pecan, cappuccino kahlua, chocolate chip cookie dough, cookie monster, fudge brownie, and one went with a strawberry lemonade Italian ice instead of ice cream.
Marcus took a hold of the camera and apparently worked out a plan to photograph us in all our exhaustion with Jase photo-bombing from behind!
Cute little man!
Our absolute favorite picture!
Looking out towards the horizon reminds me there is a whole world out there we hope we can soon explore.
Everyone is gathering to watch the sunset!
And the awaited finale begins. A beautiful Florida sunset!
Not bad photos for a beginner!
P.S. – Christian is working on an ice cream project that involves us taking him to several ice cream shops in the area over the next month. I guess when you want ice cream, you just disguise it as a project! Stay tuned…
