Photo taken for "The American" Contest.
As I was walking up the beach early in the morning, I remembered I have always wanted to try to take a photo under the Pier. I didn't expect anyone to be there, but as I lifted my camera, I noticed a little girl playing in the sand. I didn't know who she belonged to, but I really liked how big the ocean and pier seemed compared to her, and how unaware of me she was. I loved the reflection of her in the sand and water, and thought maybe I got one of those lucky shots.
