Photographer's Note

Walking on the beach of Santa Maria del Mar, I found this bouquet of sunflowers brought ashore by the waves.
Maybe is a bouquet for a bride.
Or maybe it's the flowers that someone had thrown into the sea in memory of a family member who died while performing the illegal crossing to escape communist Cuba and embrace the American dream.
The flowers are back to shore. And now that the dictatorship has opened its doors to the private properties, even the Cubans living in America want to come back ...... just like these sunflowers.

FIORI PER CHI ?
Camminando sulla spiaggia di Santa Maria del mar,ho trovato questo bouquet di girasoli portato a riva dalle onde.Forse è un bouquet di una sposa.
O forse sono i fiori che qualcuno ha lanciato in mare a ricordo di un suo familiare scomparso mentre effettuava la traversata clandestina per sfuggire alla Cuba comunista e abbracciare il sogno americano.
I fiori sono tornati a riva. E adesso che la dittatura ha aperto le porte alla proprieta' privata,anche i cubani che vivono in America vogliono tornare......proprio come questi girasoli.

FLEURS POUR QUI?
En marchant sur la plage de Santa Maria del Mar, j'ai trouvé ce bouquet de tournesols ramenés à terre par ondes.Peut etre est un bouquet pour la mariée.
Ou c'est peut-être les fleurs que quelqu'un avait jeté à la mer dans la mémoire d'un membre de la famille qui est décédé lors de l'exécution du franchissement illégal d'échapper à la Cuba communiste et d'embrasser le rêve américain.
Les fleurs sont de retour à terre. Et maintenant que la dictature a ouvert ses portes à la propriete' privee',même les Cubains vivant aux Etats-Unis veulent revenir...... tout comme ces tournesols.
