I found this colorful dressed old lady sitting on the beach, waiting for the sunset. First I did a very spontaneous picture. I liked the pittoresque scenery. Maybe she heard the shutter of the camera. She turned around and I’ve got the picture you see right now.
My wife and me had a very nice talk with her and some other people close by. I was a little sad to see that her flower wreath was made from plastic.

    Isn’t strange that so many people spend their annual vacation in “paradise” only to return to their big city home and all the anxiety that goes with it? Maybe they think “paradise” is only okay in small doses. People are strange.

  • My experience is: There is no paradise on earth. And after a trip I’m always glad to come again. Thank you Gary.
