As we were in the Gulf of Mexico
heading to Louisiana from Texas
I had the urge to play with my camera.

When I went outside and looked around,
there was nothing.
Not a ship
or a oil rig
just nothing but flat beautiful blue water.

I saw this seaweed.
It was the only subject to shoot
so why not.

And then this foam caught my eye.

I mean I was really searching
for something, anything to photograph.

And then

the Angels began to sing. ! !

These guys decided at that moment to come to our bow
for a little fun.
This photography hobby is funny.
You just never know when somethings going to pop up.

These are beautiful shots! Crisp and clear. Maybe they were pilot dolphins guiding to you to the magical state of Louisiana.
