Sounds quite the apt photographic topic in times of a global pandemic, isolation and social distancing.
Beaches (either crowded or empty) are among my favorite photographic spots, and I can totally understand that, being summer my best-loved season and hot weather my favorite climate.
Shot last summer at sunrise of what I imagined to be the most classic of blue-and-sunny day, it turned out quintessentially gloomy and moody instead. So, being my mature self, I (almost) had a meltdown when it was clear that the weather would not exactly had been what I thought (read: wanted) it to be. But I then rationalised and told myself to act like any other professional photographer out there would have done: weather is not something you do control, so roll up your sleeves and and do the best efforts to bring out the finest from the shooting and its environment, it’s useless to run after something that’s impossible to govern and loose precious energy (and time).
And while that may or may not have welcomed me into photographic adulthood, I must in the end admit I am quite happy with how the photos turned out…sentimental, nostalgic, a little bit misty and evocative.
