It’s been an extremely intense winter for me. My employer, Nola.com | The Times-Picayune newspaper and website, has struck out in a bold new direction, going to a 24/7 online news cycle and reverse publishing back into the print edition on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. This has been a challenging transition for all of us involved but I can say that we are moving forward with confidence and resolve as we continue to publish the very best journalism in our area. It’s meant many new responsibilities for me and this site has been a (hopefully) temporary casualty of the change.

Right now I’m on a much-needed break, photographing on the shoreline of South Carolina for this week in the Pawleys Island area, right on the Atlantic Ocean. Regular readers may remember a trip up here last summer. I was captivated by the darkness of the sand and how hard-packed it can be as it gets pounded by the ocean surf, not at all like the soft, white beaches we have along the Gulf of Mexico closer to home.

These are images from the first day of shooting. I hope to post more later in the week.
