Art: The Reason by Artist Kristine Ashcraft
The summer of 2006 marked the first summer my two stepchildren were able to visit us and this trip to the coast was the first time they had seen the ocean. That day was filled with so much wonder for them and I took hundreds of photographs to remember that weekend but still today, it is this one that surfaces so many emotions for me and makes me remember how wonderful and special my family is to me.

I took this photo using a Fugifilm S5000 digital camera. The figures were already noticably dark since the sun was in front of me but I thought the moment was right and took the picture anyway. I edited the photo by converting it to an 8 bit grayscale using PhotoStudio.
