Thematic Photographic 257 - I didn't shoot this

Mooring lines
Grand Bend, ON
July 2013
Life has been twisty-turny around here this month, so I'm going to reflect that in this week's Thematic theme choice, "I didn't shoot this."

The theme is deceptively simple: for the next week, share pictures, any pictures, that you did not take.

In my case, I have our daughter, Dahlia, to thank. We were at the beach last month, and we each took a camera on a great big walk from one end of the beach to the other. As I edited her pictures afterward, it hit me, rather strongly, that she has a great sense of composition. I thought back to the photos I took when I was her age and realized how far ahead she already is.

She captured this texture-rich photo on the jetty at the south end of the beach. We could have wandered for hours, but the waves were beckoning. I can't wait until my next shoot with our kids, as they seem to be particularly adept at finding new ways to wow me. They got that from my wife.

Your turn: Take a pic that was taken by anyone BUT you, and share it on your blog, website, Facebook page, Twitter stream, or related web resource. Leave a comment here letting other folks know where to find it, and drop in on other participants to share the joy. Feel free to repeat the process throughout the week, and if you're tweeting, use the #ThematicPhotographic hashtag to spread the word even further. For more background on how Thematic works, head here. And have fun!

I could not help but copy Gilly's idea. So here is a part 2 of this week's Theme.

This is such an interesting theme - and what a cool shot of Dahlia's!
