Waves, seaweed, gulls.

bite of salt.
Sand like end-of-summer dirt

  1. This is a unique take on the photo. I like the description, "Sand like end-of-summer dirt
    duned up against a lamppost."

  5. Like that you moved the setting. Gives extended possibilities. From now on, I will think of "end of summer dirt" every time I see sand. :)

  10. The imagery in this is just delicious--the "caustic bite of salt," the "end of summer dirt," "Ahab waiting on the tide." And I love how you've turned dune into a verb--works beautifully.
