A girl in the beach

I don’t know her. I think she was french, based on what I was able to hear from the distance. The city was Barcelona, in winter. I just had a 35mm lens, so I couldn’t get closer, anyway I think it was safer not to get so close. Fortunately, in Europe, despite so many centuries of sexual repression due irrational religious views, it didn’t completely defeat common sense, so we can see girls, freely taking a bath in topless and nobody cares. Her husband was sitting on the sand with their kid. I admire her resistance, in winter, taking a bath…

What I like of this picture is that there is no way to know if it’s in winter or summer. Sometimes it’s just a point of view :)
