Here’s Round Two of the People vs. The Wedge. Enjoy.
Every couple of sets, a few big waves would bring a roar of whitewash up the sand and it would hit the vertical sand lip and reach out and soak whoever was closest. Invariably, the crowd would get soaked, they would back off and within minutes would forget about the whitewash and press back up to the lip craning their necks for more surf. After a couple of hours of watching this happen, I saw a monster set approach, ran back behind the crowd and managed to snap a quick sequence of shots of the people who had again forgotten that the big waves crashing meant big whitewash coming.
I love my children way too much to be doing what this parent was doing – posing their kid in front of the sand lip for ‘fun’ photos; I hope they got the pix they wanted because they almost lost a treasure…
More photos to come.
