How easy it is to observe, from most of your subjects, that you come from a seaside location! Everything has a connection with the sea.

The red in your photos brings a lot of optimism.

Off the topic: because I ended my series about India. Have you changed your impressions from the beginning of those posts? Would you ever travel to India? Just courious :)

That looks like muscle-busting work! The boats also seem wider than shells would be in the USA. Very interesting.
