Surf Photo Friday – Chloe Buckley & the Tiny Five Hundred Dollar Wave
“Chloe, I have a totally random thing to run by you. Mission Fed is having a $500 photo contest where you go somewhere you enjoy in San Diego and have your picture taken while holding their logo. I just printed out and laminated a little sign and was thinking it might be fun to take it into the surf for some water shots.”
“I’m sooooo down!”
As often happens, the moment the ocean caught word of our photo ideas, the surf went flat–dead flat. As the deadline approached, a morning surf check in Oceanside revealed some glassy, almost-rideable ankle slappers. Although we misfired on our first few attempts (pictured below), Chloe and I got in sync for a couple of almost 1-footers and in the end, we scored enough photos that it was actually difficult choosing which image she would submit as her contest entry.
A few days later, Mission Fed chose Chloe’s photo as the contest-winning entry. She received congratulations from a Mission Fed Senior Vice President, a certificate, and a cool $500 for her tiny, winning wave. Most important to me than winning though was getting the opportunity to shoot with a great friend and an amazing human being. That type of prize is truly priceless.
Thank you for dropping by for another installment of Surf Photo Friday. Have a great weekend everyone …and as always, thank you for your support of Jettygirl.
