A photograph can easily change your perspective. This picture was taken at birds eye level, but it is not what you would think of as birds eye view. At just a few inches high, you can hardly focus on what is beneath you. But you can clearly see the silhouettes of humans walking on the beach, some holding hands, some all alone. Some far away, some very close. Look closely and in the far off distance you can make out the Sanibel Causeway. Size is a relative concept. A one inch wave just might make you stumble and fall, so run, run quickly.

Tide was going out and Charlotte Harbor was pretty choppy. We didn't go far before turning toward home. It's never worth it when the winds begin gusting and the white caps begin to appear. As we returned, I caught eye of this. Endearing I thought. The winds did not stop this Dad and first mate. They were on a mission. They kayaked out to this quickly rising sandbar and set out to discover. It doesn't matter the mission, it was the journey that mattered. Ingrained in their memories will be this adventure and the time they spent together. I've enjoyed such moments but always yearn for more.

The angle of this shot hides the Pantheon in the Piazza della Rotunda in Rome. The Pantheon Fountain was commissioned by Pope Gregory XIII. The fountain assumed its current appearance in 1711. Filippo Barigioni was given the tedious task of reconstruction of the fountain. It was fully restored by the end of the past century and some of the original parts, masks that once decorated the top of the fountain, can be viewed in the Rome Museum.
