There was a American movie(1968) called "light and shadow of the youth" to the movies I've seen in a teenager. I have forgotten about detail of the contents of the story, but the young man who lost the waves lover go to hitchhike in Southern California. So, he meet a woman of journalists continue to travel unrestrained in the same way. Man through such experience opened a new eyes to see the world. After the parting with her, he who came to the port town know another woman there. And, he is attracted to her violently to live hard. But catastrophe of love with a woman who knows the back of life and immature young man came easily. Forget early broken heart. Pain of the wound that can not be forgotten so forget, irreplaceable memories of youth.
This photograph was taken on the beach in Kasai Rinkai Park facing Tokyo Bay in the evening. One couple in character with a high school student was walking along sands silently. The woman was a posture which is lean against a man's arm alluringly. It is a light spectacle which everyone experiences at youth. In the sea at the end of November, the group of a sea gull is already adrift. For a moment, it grew dim as for the spectacle of a movie, and it was in sight.
Bows and flows of angel hair. And ice cream castles in the air. And feathered canyons everywhere. I've looked at clouds that way. But now they only block the sun. They rain and snow on everyone. So many things I would have done.

Hello Mikio San,
Your photo is very beautiful and poetic. Your note is thoughtful and complements the photo effectively. I have not seen the film, but I've always liked the music of Joni Mitchell.

The sun reflections in the background water surface make an effect of blue silver and the couple struggling along here are turning along a fictive diagonal line. The part of shallow water gives a blue line across the scene. A very attractive picture.

Nice shot! The water looks like silver. It must be a very peaceful moment with all those birds in background. I like the pose of the couple, seems the man doesn't want to get his trousers wet!
