Behind the Image
Humans and animals alike have always been drawn to water. Not just for our survival, but also for the tranquil effects gazing out into the horizon has on the body and mind.
Growing up I remember how much I’d look forward to a day at the beach and I still do now even as an adult. It seems like the best days are beach days, where everyone is happy to be there and having the time of their lives. This image was taken in Rockaway Beach, New York City, a favorite spot of mine as a child and an adult.
The smell of salt in the air, the feeling of warm sand running through your fingertips, and the hot sun bathing you in light. Whether you visit to relax, to have fun, to think, to write, or to just feel closer to nature, the seaside is there for you and I’m grateful that it is.
