Entry Description

While photographing children frolicking in the surf in Oceanside, California, I noticed a man fully dressed in a very dark heavy overcoat and pants walking right into my frame. He looked sad and I couldn't resist including him in the shot. I love the juxtiposition of what looked like sadness surrounded by so much joy.
