12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Fading Memories

I was walking along the beach one afternoon and turned to look behind me when I saw my footprints in the sand quickly being washed away by the incoming waves. I thought of the all the vacations memories that quickly fade when we get back to the everyday grind of life. I did some back stepping, created some new prints and snapped a picture before they too were gone. This picture is a reminder to me to enjoy and cherish every minute and never let a moment go by that my heart doesn't take a picture.
