Peace that Passes Understanding

Couples: twenty-ish and forty-ish.  Professional photographers with tripods and flashes on poles.  Singletons on their own with phone cameras.  Singletons walking dogs.  Groups of young women.  And one senior amateur photographer.

I expect there are sound psychological reasons — maybe even sound evolutionary reasons — to explain why people of all ages and types gravitate to the seaside, even or especially at sunrise and sunset.   I don’t know what they are, nor do I need to.  This is a case where I don’t need to understand the phenomenon/experience, except insofar as it might help to replicate it where there is no seaside.

      No, Like the first one (that is, top left, where we usually start reading from). Something about those bandy legs, spiderish, digging into the beach…
