This beach photo was posted to Instagram in November 2016, by a woman named Melissa.
She captioned it, “This is what I was thinking.
My mind was made up.”
It’s not easy to be photographed in the middle of a beach in Florida.
But the photos show how much fun people can have at the beach, especially when it’s in good company.
Melissa, who is now a mother and an environmentalist, was inspired by photos of people playing volleyball at the park and the view of the bay from the beach.
She started taking photos of her favorite beach scenes and then sharing them online.
Now, she’s working to raise awareness about the dangers of being at the ocean.
She tells NPR’s Robert Siegel that it’s so difficult to get your photos taken in public.
People are afraid of being photographed.
So it’s hard for people to imagine that there is something beautiful about being out on the beach and not being surrounded by people who are doing things that are dangerous.
The people who photograph the beach are people that you’re really just seeing, and they’re not actually people that are in the water.
Melissa says she hopes to continue taking photos and share them online with other people.
