An ordinary day at the beach
|Lanzada Beach, O Grove, Spain
This doesn't really have a witty story behind it. But I like the picture. It kind of reminds me of Martin Parr's style - satirically journalistic anthropologistic images of aspects of everyday ordinary life of retrospective social England. Except this was shot at Lanzada Beach, a tourist site in Galicia off a few miles away from Santiago de Compostela. Quite frankly, I find Parr's images quite boring. Does it mean that I find my image equally boring? At this point, I don't really have much of an opinion. Maybe deep inside I think it is because I have procrastinated sharing it. I see the fat lady with too much sunscreen cream on her back, the hot chick beside her - applying some faux cream on her arms, the lazy people in the background - they look like miniature toys. What else can it be? Unexceptional. Ordinary. Maybe if I did not blur out the topless woman sitting next to a man at the lower left hand corner of the photo - it might be a bit exciting. Oh but I have to blur out the topless lady because my art is rated PG. She is there though - I can assure you. In fact, there were some more topless women at the beach so it was a challenge not to include them in my frame.
