Day 5 – Solitude and the Rule of Thirds

Solitary swimmer:  Lahinch, Co. Clare, Ireland

Solitary swimmer: Lahinch, Co. Clare, Ireland

While walking on the beach in Lahinch, Co. Cork, Ireland last summer, I spied this little swimmer exploring the waves.  Despite it being high summer, the water was chilly, so dressed in his wetsuit, he ventured out for a swim.


Minimalist theme

In keeping with the Blogging U theme of the week, “Minimalist”, I submit the following photo.

I took it in South Carolina on the beach at Botany Bay.  It was a cold, windy day and there were very few people around.  As I walked the beach, virtually alone, I suddenly spotted these shoes, apparently abandoned.  I looked around, but there was no one – certainly not a child  – strolling shoeless.
