These are two more shots from the series I call "The Space Between", shot at the jetties near Ft. Macon, NC. I've always thought standing at the shoreline was a little like standing at the edge of the world. That probably explains part a lot of my fascination with the beach.

You're like a myopic Georgia O'Keefe (or O'Keefe once removed?), you know it? Don't worry... she got away with it, too. *runs and hides before she gets in trouble*

Happy WW!

Incredible shots.

Wonderful shots. I feel the ocean is not the end of the world,but the pathway to a new life. I just love the ocean. I have a daughter in Carrie NC. We are closest to Rhode Island for the real ocean. None in CT that can compare.

Yoni reminds me of a specific moment and set of shoreline rocks at a pivotal time in my life, fittingly, on Isla Mujeres off the Yucatan.
Very evocative picture, Mojo.

Happy WW! Your photo reminds me that I don't get to the beach often enough now that I've moved away from California...

Thanx for your earlier visit! I invite your blog readers to see an unusual outcome of yesterday's earthquake on my WW-post this week...

peace, Villager

Great shots, I really like how you liken the shoreline to the edge of the world (that's deep).

Reminds me of one of my favorite places in the world - there's an island in northern Lake Michigan with a big natural harbor. The beach is rocky, but turns to sand as you go out. About 30 yards from shore, the sand drops from 8 feet deep to a bajillion, and it's like standing on the underwater edge of the world. Clear blue water as far as you can see. It sure gives me a sense of my smallness.

/off to get a decent camera

My apologies if this is a repeat post. My computer is misbehaving of late. What I said the last time I tried to comment was (I think):

The spaces between - what a fascinating idea for a project! Interesting photos.
