Do you ever think about how big, beautiful and diverse the world is? One of my favourite bookst states that:
Christ, did you ever see the streets? There were millions of them, even just streets. How do you people down there choose one? A house, a land of your own, a landscape to look at…All of that world. All od that seemingly endless world on your shoulders. And there is so much of it. Aren’ t you ever afraid of falling apart by just thinking about that enormous entity? Just by thinking about it? – Alessandro Baricco
There are places around the world that make you think about what it’s like to live there; you end up wondering what people are doing in that house, what they eat in the evening, what they discuss, what their interests are, what their stories are.
One thing that I like to do when traveling and when I discover a new place that I particularly like is to imagine what my life there would be like… and then the interesting thing is that you always imagine having a cool job, living in a marvelous place and having an amazing life; in reality, your life would not really be like that, but the nice thing about imagining is that you do not need to give a damn about reality.
So I took these photos thinking about what my life would be like in this enchanted bay, amongst the reflections of a beach that leaves a patch of earth uncovered every day, because of the tidal wave. Much like a woman who leaves just a spot of skin uncovered because she knows this makes her even more attractive.
The beach I’m telling you about is Loh Da Lum Bay, in Phi Phi Don, the main island in Phi Phi Island, Thailand. Some people leave negative reivews about this place, because of the tidal waves that make it difficult to swim at certain times, but I found it poetic: at noon, you can see a bay with very white sand and a sea of multiple tones of green; in the afternoon, you can look at yourself in the reflection of the retiring sea: a breath-taking paradise!
