The girl in the hut
A cold winter morning, walking with my camera along Hove beach (in the South of England) in search of inspiration. In those early hours of the day, when the sunshine warms and illuminates the blue sea, this day a group of young swimmers arrived. I watched their friendship and elegance from distance, approached and waved, hoping that they would let me to take some photographs. They immediatly said yes and suddenly, they were already in the sea. After a few minutes, one at a time, they began to return. The water must have been extremelly cold. Such an inspiring group of people. The girl in the photo was the last to enter the sea and the last one to leave. She spent some time alone, as if she was reflecting over something important or maybe she was just contemplating the emptiness, letting herself be carried away by the beauty that the immensity of the sea can give us. The hut is a separate photo that adds an imaginary world into the girls' dreams and thoughts.
