What's up!? This weekend Filipe and I managed to head out to the beach, although, it wasn't for your conventional sun-in-the-fun, sand castle-building, type of day. It was raining, and I wanted to catch some images of the haze over the ocean.
The ocean is so peaceful, beautiful, and atmospheric when it's raining and I didn't want to miss this photo-opt! I'm going to try and convert these images into beautiful framed panels for my new apartment! I love a good crafts project and working with my hands; nothing like one-of-a-kind, homemade art for your walls! I might record the process if you guys are interested... anyway, for now, enjoy the pics!
The different shades of gray and blue are so beautiful and subtle.
Filipe is my official "Beach Tour Guide." He loves climbing the rocks, diving into the waves, and catching crabs. Lol, he reverts back to "Filipelito" (Little Filipe), and I think it reminds him of his childhood.
"Filipelito" about to lift a rock in hopes of finding a family of crabs...
Haha! He found a bunch of crabs! Here's one that just couldn't crawl away fast enough... Filipe holds.. I snap the photo. Those crabs creep me out! They look like gigantic spiders, yuuck!... Aww, but cute spiders...
So every time we go to the beach, I have to force myself not to take home rocks... needless to say, I have many beach rocks at home, and there's just no room for more.
But I absolutely LOVE beach rocks! Look at that color (in person it's so much more vibrant!) But the color palettes you find in nature are so beautiful! Mother Nature, you are a GENIUS with those Pantone Swatches girl!
I wanted to take home the large green and tan marbled rock above, but it was too heavy to lift... lucky rock. I'll be back for you with my forklift next week.. sleep with one eye open.
Seriously, these photos do the actual color palette no justice. Just imagine everything, richer and brighter.
And of course, I have to show you what the humidity and rain did to my hair, lol! I was wearing a stretched wash and go without product, and the humidity just plumped everything up! Hey, at least my hair was nice and moisturized... no complaints here!
