Evening somewhere at the Opal Coast. Light is fading fast. We are well beyond the golden hour. These are the last minutes of the blue hour.
I am enjoying the solitude I find on these deserted beaches. Yet I feel sad and lonely. I wish I could share these moments with someone I treasure, somebody with whom I have such a deep connection it becomes a fairy tale.
Later on, in my hotel room somewhere in Calais, I upload the files to my laptop and look at my photographs while emptying a bottle of wine.
On an evening like this, with my heart filled with so much emotions, I would hit the sack rather drunk. And regret it the next morning while trying to kill the hang-over.
Anyway, somehow I made it and finally hit the jackpot when I met Sweetheart, three years and a few months after I captured this image.
