By the Sea California coast photography.
I have always had a facination with the sea and with beach communities. This series is a growing collection of the quiet beauty I have found in my constant wanderings along the California coast. Not all of the photographs are of the beach or the water. They are often of surrounding landscapes or places. For me they are about a sense of silent longing. Looking out at the ocean I have always felt this longing, a longing for the unknown. It fills me with a vague sense of sadness. I suppose it is the feeling of the sublime: the great womb of earthly existence spread out before me, my mind wanting to comprehend it, but unable to, a beautiful sense of failure. Having encountered the sublime in nature, one begins to find it all around them, even in the most ordinary of objects.
