OF SAND, COUPLES CONSPIRING MURDER AND MONKEYS WITH A VENGEANCE.
Disclaimer: This photo makes me want to write poetry. But I will not.
Wake up. Throw your blankets aside, draw the curtains, open your windows and smell the fresh air. The sun has risen. A new day has begun. A chance to forget all that was in the past. A chance to start afresh. New day, new beginnings.
Ugh. Too philosophical for my taste.
I rather give you my lame ass poetry. But I wonít.
So about this photo, I havenít got much to say. There is, in the distance, a couple. Probably discussing their future, probably family planning, probably planning a murder. Or probably just quietly enjoying the view, past the rubbish on the coast that is. We can only guess.
What you must know: I love the sea, the beaches, making sandcastles in the sand, all of it. But, I am mighty scared of the sea. Iím afraid to stand on the coast and let the waves kiss my feet. I canít do it alone and I hate the fact that I canít. Itís probably cause I donít know how to swim and for that Iíd like to thank all the people who pushed me in the pool and the monkey who chewed on my first float boat.

I love the beach as well. And it seems to be one of the very few places in India where one can get some relatively alone moments.
I like the brightness of the sun and the silhouette of te people, and the smoggy background that show through some of India's architecture. However, I would have like it if it was more closed in / cropped. Right now, the eye draws to the flare in the foreground. The footprints interestingly lead us to the couple.
While I believe your subject is the couple, which sets right in the middle of the frame, I can't help but want to see more of the architecture on the top left.
I think beaches are difficult to capture attention, especially for those of us who have seen so many of them. They are like sunset, great to look at but hard to execute and make an impression.
Thanks for sharing though. It's nice to see a 'different' side of India.

I like the golden tones of the sunlight on the sand.
