In other news, I've been familiarizing myself with all the fancy functions on our point-and-shoot camera, so pardon the lame attempts at artsy-fartsy. I was mostly trying to master a narrow depth-of-field, and custom exposures, which is particularly challenging in direct sunlight with a toddler for a subject. You can see that there are very few, if any shots in which he directly faces the camera.
After our beach excursion, we meandered around the various shops of Capitola, where I indulged in a distinctively unique red coat at a patchouli-scented hippie store. Just before the cry fest started, we realized it was nap time and headed back to the car. Did I mention that not only was it gorgeously sunny, but also in the mid 60s?
