Cap-Ferret: Shelter

July 10, 2009

There’s something about beach towns.  Even opulent beach towns.  So much beauty in the weathering. Unlike giant cement cities, which seem so solid and indestructible, a little town by the ocean carries a sense of organic impermanence.  Like a sand castle.  Enjoy it while it’s here, because even now it is slowly, slowly washing away.

My camera isn’t super-fancy (not that I would know how to use a super-fancy camera if I had one! ha), so there’s a lot about the light and texture that I can’t get, but still, something of the color and gorgeous aging in this place comes through.
