The Mermaid Series

beach mermaid 1
I love the beach, but I’m not a sun worshiper. Sizzling on the sand is about the most boring thing on earth to me, so activities are a must. A book to read, a camera for snapping photos, something.

Recently I saw a photo of a mermaid created from found beach materials and I knew I had my summer project. Each trip to the beach this year, I plan on making a mermaid and photographing it as part of a series.

Hopefully my mermaid portraits improve as the summer rolls along, but avoiding shadows  is difficult, as is photographing my mermaids when some twit sets up camp six inches from where my son and I are making our mermaid (see orange towel in the photo on the right).

    Populate the beaches of the earth with mermaids! Then share them with us.
