A few years ago we were walking down a secluded beach on the Big Island of Hawaii. We came upon this massive green sea turtle laying on the beach enjoying the warm sunny day while the turquoise water gently lapped at the shore. I slowly walked up to this massive sea turtle, got down real close, and took the photo. It never even budged an inch. It was really amazing to be so close to such an impressive creature.
The reason I chose this as the photo of the week is that I just sold a framed version of it. Over the years we have taken some of our favorite photos, printed, framed, and hung them on the walls inside our house. At our estate sale this past weekend, I decided to slap some price tags on some of those framed photos. And… someone bought one. I have sold digital photos, and long ago took and sold portrait photos. But, this was the first time I have sold some of my recent printed work and it’s a great feeling. Whoever purchased this photo, I really hope you enjoy it!
