I’m submitting this for Dr Cason’s Friday Photo Challenge. Her theme is “New Beginnings”

Boy Reflections Done

I’ve always felt strongly about this picture. It’s not much but it means more to me than the actual visuals of image. I typically don’t think or structure my photography to symbolize something. I see things for how they are. However, this photo has always been the exception. I can relate to the nameless boy in this photo for some reason. Running on sand full speed into the future. Eager for the next thing in life. Tripping over his feet sometimes and feeling the resistance of the sand. Looking into the reflection at the same time, still trying to find exactly who he is.


That was deep.

Point is, I like this picture because it makes me think of the past and the future. So, there you have it. New Beginnings.



  1. Oh man, nice. I like that you can’t see his whole body unless you look in the reflection!

    Don’t worry – I’m thinking of my favorite place!
