A walk is required after stuffing one’s face with delicious Mexican enchiladas from La Playa in Port Aransas. We pushed up our hoods and headed to the nearby beach. In the winter the beach is a different, yet no less magical place. There weren’t too many folks about, but a few campers were braving it. I am still navigating my way around my new camera and I got a little frustrated with the auto focus lens. I was without a tripod anyways, which makes it nearly impossible to capture those gorgeous stars regardless of whether or not I was able fully operate my camera like a pro. I feel like the photographer’s story is nearly always one in which there is a whole lot filler about didn’t go right with an ending of what managed to be perfect.
