Summer 2013 in Foz. It is a Good place to rest and to read. I had always the feeling that time ran to fast in summer.It seems that it is another life time that began and the memory gets bigger year by year.
Summer is really full of memories from days and nights of life.

“Even so, there were times I saw freshness and beauty. I could smell the air, and I really loved rock 'n' roll. Tears were warm, and girls were beautiful, like dreams. I liked movie theaters, the darkness and intimacy, and I liked the deep, sad summer nights.”
― Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance

It is raining outside my window,so this image brought back thoughts of sandy,sunny beaches & lifted my spirits.Lots & lots of footprints, but absent of people,are they all swimming Teresa :-)

Best wishes,

Hello Terasat

A very interesting image for sure. The many footprints without the souls to fill them. The deserted shelters and beach make for a good study. Not sure about the POV.......right down the middle. still a matter of taste I guess. nice tones and end result.


It's only the middle of August so where are the people? Nice capture of those cabanas and good composition especially in B&W. I like the dark clouds in the background. Good contrast. Well done, tfs.

Great graphism of thie rows of cabanas, the weather was not suitable for beach visit, a little sad without people

Hi,it's a sad and thoughtful image with the stripes in b+w looking like an inmates garment.Meaningful idea,best wishes,Otto.


Une façon très élégante de photographier la plage, j'aime voir ces lignes et ces formes différentes sur le sable, il n'y a personne, pourtant j'ai comme l'impression que quelqu'un observe ...
Joli mouvement des nuages, et surtout la luminosité ainsi que les contrastes sont excellents.
Une photo étudiée.

Hello Teresat, an interesting observation, as others have said,a very empty looking beach with only the footprints to tell us that people have walked this way.
Maybe the sky is the clue?
I like the dynamism of the striped cabanas.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Teresat
Une belle présentation en Noir et Blanc...j'aime toutes ces lignes verticales
Love your note...

You treat us with so much here.
Your sky has a magical effect at highlighting the Beach Huts and their pattern.
A keen eye has presented this one, so masterly.


bonjour Teresa
On dirait le décor d'une pièce de théâtre , peut-être Shakespeare - La Tempête- dans une mise en scène moderne. Le drame va se nouer.Des présences suggérées et pour le moment pas une âme, comme si l' absence , même ici, pouvait être une douleur.
Superbes mise en page, tonalités et intensité dramatique
um abraço

Amiga Teresa,
Você e sua maneira de ver e registrar são inconfundíveis. Desde a miniatura nós antegozamos uma nova obra de arte personalíssima.
É o seu mundo e seu modo de transmiti-lo.
Obrigado, muito obrigado.

sueprbe image de ces cabane de plage en tissu merveilleux avec le rayures et le sable ce ciel tout ce fond quelle vue splendide.
Bravo et amitié

Hello Teresat,

Lonely and cold looking image ... maybe because its B & W and the foreboding stormy sky. The stripes on the tents are interesting (red and white? Blue and Yellow? or ???) B & W leaves much to the imagination.

Best wishes,


Ciao Teresa, fascinating B&W, great graphic, fantastic sky, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Ola Teresa
summer site in autumnal atmosphere. nice play of B&W stripes. awesome texture of beach sand. all in a dramatic picture.

hI Teresat...nicely done. You have the great ability to take something minimalistic and create art with it. Good work.

Hello Dear Teresa :)

You got the miraculous contrast in colours B&W.
The very interesting, original composition in the beautiful light.
The whole looks magnificently, the large effect!

Best wishes...Barbara.

Hi Teresa,
Time seems to run too fast. I like the monochrome conversion with the almost sepia sky, a great combination. Nice black & white lines on the places of rest.

Hi Teresat:

Nicely done. I like the patterns and the sky.
It reminds me of a beach I used to go when I was young. Nice memories.

Hi Teresat,

Wonderful composition in B/W, all this beautiful lines.
The dramatic sky with clouds and all this may footprints in the sand, great POV.
Light is perfect for the composition, TFS.
