Are you kidding me?

So today I drove up to Ventura with my family to hang out with some old friends and also to shoot their family pictures. We sat around and watched the kids play, barbecued, played some darts and then about 6:15 or so we piled in the cars and took off to the beach to catch the beautiful late afternoon light.

The shoot was going really well, the kids we're cooperating and the light was awesome. We got the obligatory posed family pics out of the way first and then the idea was to just hang out and shoot them playing for as long as we had light. So we're playing at the beach, when all of the sudden this guy and his dog walk up. He's carrying a surfboard and the dog is wearing a life jacket. So we're all thinking oh that's so funny, the dog's gonna go swimming while the guy goes surfing. Then the guy puts the surf board in the water and the dog jumps on. Turns out its the dog that's the surfer, the guy was just there to body surf, and the dog is going nuts. The guy would take him out into the waves and the dog would catch one and ride it all the way in and sit there and bark at the guy until he took him back out. Amazing.

I'll put up some pics of the shoot tomorrow.
talk to you soon.
