Abandoned Beach Sandals         2022©Isadora DeLaVega

I found these abandoned sandals as I left the beach one day. Someone knew that as September approaches, we’re leaving behind summer, and the new fall season will soon begin. The lazy, hazy days of dipping our toes in the ocean after covering them with gritty sand will become fond memories.

Perhaps, beach days won’t be on the calendar of the people                                                                                        who left behind their beach chair and fun noodle float.

A machete stabs a coconut for the sweet coconut juice hidden inside. We snacked on plantain fries and ice-cold beers as we watched this man with a machete chopping coconuts to sell to a fellow tourist. It was interesting the way he freely wielded that machete around.

While walking the beach, you can come across more things than shells.

Shell Collection      2022©Isadora DeLaVega

Seashells are abundant at the beach in the early morning hours.                                                                               These are a few shells I’ve collected over several years.                                                                                               None of them are unique, just playing with seashell collecting.

Summer Sunset    2022©Isadora DeLaVega

And, when day is done … a glowing summer sunset can be a favorite find                                                                       on that particular evening. But, the next one tomorrow will be a favorite find too.

The photograph of the water above was an afterthought shot. I had been watching the changes in the color of the ocean water. It was mesmerizing, almost meditative. As I walked away, I thought let me snap this motion. I’m glad I made that last minute decision.

LAPC – Three Favorite Images

Flower Raspberry 1024S Orchid.web Red Red Wine     photography©Isadora DeLaVega

 I chose this photograph because of the way the orchid branch looks like it is floating … 

Photographing flowers is my favorite form of photography. I started photographing flowers because I grow orchids as a hobby. One year, the weather was very erratic. Several of my orchids had beautiful blooms, but with the erratic temps climbing up and down, the flowers faded very fast. I was disappointed I hadn’t thought of photographing them.

Flower Yellow Spike.webSunshine Smile photography©Isadora DeLaVega

 I chose this photograph because I loved the way the yellow center pops.

The white and purple petals faded into the background too

which gave this photo a bit of drama.

It was quite large, so I thrilled I was able to capture it.

Flower Green Orchid.web   Double Limes   photography©Isadora DeLaVega

I chose this photograph because of the way the colors.

There is an abundant array of orchid colors and genuses. I’ve been growing them for about 14 years. I have had one bloom like this, only once, but in a lavendar color. These were photographed at the Selby Orchid Gardens in Sarasota, Florida.
