Travel themes at http://wheresmybackpack.com/2014/01/10/travel-theme-illuminated/ often seem to coincide with photos I've taken recently. These two were taken as I travelled along the beach five minutes from home. They exemplify one of the things I love about photography. Two steps to the left or five minutes later and I would have missed the particular translucency of the bluebottle and the beach-burnishing. There is always only one chance for that specific shot.
