It could be any old day really,
but this day happens to be in Gulf Shores, AL.
This was the day that my Uncle Matt was showing me how to make a sandcastle.
A group of boys arrived a few minutes after we got set up in our spot and they started surfing right by us.
The waves weren't big at all, so they were mostly working on their form. (That's what they said)
They could have been beginners for all I knew, but they were a lot of fun to watch.
I never got their names, but they were all buddies from the local area and a few of them were going to the University of Alabama this fall.
At some point after the pelican sand sculpture was finished, the boy in the red 3 shirt asked if I would take their picture. Four of them had remembered to bring their team shirts and they wanted a photo together.
Of course I said yes!
While I had them all together, I had them strike this pose. (I added in the boy who had forgotten his shirt.) I noticed all afternoon that while waiting for the next wave, they would lean on their boards. I liked the pose, so I had them recreate it.
Then they asked if I would take another one of them looking all bad a$$.
They were such nice boys that they really can't pull off the look, but I didn't tell them that!
I emailed one of them the photos the next day and he was thrilled with them.
Hope you have a great day!
