Along the shore by gilad Along the shore by gilad

The sea shore, a place where some stories end, and others begin.
Footsteps are like hints of what once happened, washed away in seconds, like small windows in time allowing just a short term memory.
The ocean, just like a giant eraser, in charge of refilling the battery of time in endless circulation.
Two girls with their own private piece of mind, split their footsteps in the sand, only for the sea to wash their mind of things


****

Haifa beach, Israel.
A day before the rockets began falling on Haifa.
Like short time memory, This was taken in a day that seems like ancient history at Haifa.
Nobody feels safe now, walking these same shores.

I hope that the sense of security will return soon to Haifa, and to Lebanon as well.
Stay safe, and keep believing in peace.

Your colors are always awesome. Nice composition. I also like how the footsteps lead you to the girl drawing in the sand and how the girl in pink is looking into the middle of the image (as opposed to of the image). And the white of the of the waves is enough to break up the heavy qualities of the color of the water.

Lovely shot, as usual. It evokes fond seashore memories. More surreal than I'm sure you intended, given the the timing.

I think of you when watching the news reports as you are the only person I "know" in your part of the world.

How sad to have to live in fear when all any of us want to do is live and love and enjoy our family and friends.
