LensProToGo 52 Week Photo Project - Week 5 Submission

My submission for week 5 - I Left my Heart in... (your favorite place).

her hands, of course. My favorite place to be is at the beach, watching/photographing a sunrise with my wife, Donna. Since Valentines is approaching she's holding handfuls of those little candy hearts. The beach also holds a special place in my heart due to an incident that happened in 2008. My dad died on January 10th, 2008. Donna and I were living in Georiga at the time and as we made our way to North Carolina for his funeral we stopped at our family condo in Myrtle Beach, SC. On the morning of the 11th we got up early and went to the beach and shot the sunrise. We were well back from where the waves were coming up on the beach and I wrote a message to my dad in the sand. I wrote the message, took one photograph of it and then, for some unknown reason, a wave made it all the way to where I had written the message and erased it. Donna was looking up in the sky and she pointed out what appeared to be the letters "WW" I told her that was dad's way of saying message received and she wanted to know why I thought that. I told her as a kid my dad often called me "WhirlWind" so the "WW" we saw was short for my nickname. We he still alive, my dad would have turned 95 today, since today was his birthday.
