By the Seashore - Our Beautiful World

Racing around like a loonie trying to get everything done before going back to France, I almost forgot to post a pic for this week's theme over at the Our Beautiful World blog.

The theme is By the Seashore, and I knew straight away which photograph I wanted to use. I took it a few years ago when our lovely boy Harry was still with us. The photo is of my DH walking with Harry on the beach at Bexhill. The sun was so bright, my little camera didn't pick up any colours really, turned it into an almost black and white photo, but I loved the unintentional effect -


I used it on the cover of a calendar I made for my DH parents that year, and it is still one of my most favourite photographs.
