Doting father Christopher J. Hall took this picture with his Canon 5d Mark iii and 50mm f1.4 lens at Santa Monica Beach on a warm February day.
“I'm working on a series of photographs of my daughter at the beach,” the avid photographer said. “I'm hoping that it will be a project I can continue over the course of her life.”
