(July 24th, 2014)

Got to spend a few minutes at La Porte beach after a photo assignment nearby. Noticed a whole bunch of people with metal detectors combing the beach. Unusual only to the fact that there were so many of them at once. Found out later it was a city ordinance, which only allowed metal detectors on the beach every Thursday.

Also a first for me seeing a under water detector in action.

Cigarette dangling. Sweaty shirt. Kaki hat. Shorts and running shoes. The complete modern day treasure hunter.
