C is for Chasing Crabs.............
I don't have too many people photos in my portfolio. When selling stock images, you need to have release forms signed by the people in your images if you are offering them for sale as royalty free.
They can be sold as editorial stock images when you don't have the releases, but the call for them is usually limited to celebrities or current events.
I captured these two last summer while visiting the ocean.
They had waited until the tide was far enough out so they could get past the rocks and seaweed to wade in the water.
They were having a ball chasing the tiny crabs that were scurrying around their feet.
Their Mom made sure they had their water shoes on to protect their feet, and off they went with their pails and bags.
As hard as they tried, they were only able to catch one tiny crab. They may be slow on land, but in the water those little things can really move.
It made me chuckle. All I could think of was when my son was small, he stated he could outrun a chipmunk and catch it without a problem because it was so small. Seventeen years later that chipmunk still remains uncaught, but you know, I think he still thinks he can really outrun it.
Those precious moments - it still makes me smile!
