Memorial Day at Misquamicut

We celebrated Memorial Day (May 30th) by going to Misquamicut Beach in Rhode Island.  Normally, we avoid popular holiday celebration sites like beaches, but this year it was cold and foggy so the beach was empty.  While our little guy amused himself by pouring sand on his head and on our shoes, Chris and I took turns taking pictures of the deserted beach.

This shot, by Chris, is the one we liked best.

The scene is very simple, just a log and a single seagull on a beach, but it captures the foggy, deserted feeling.  The colors were fairly muted in the original so changing it to black and white helped bring out the contrasts in the shadows of the log and sand.
