  • A long way by boat

    the world's perfect level

    a destination renewing itself,

    extending by the distance just travelled.

    Closer and farther at the instant,

    a border between you and there.

    You can solve the riddle.


    And jump the horizon.

    Why this photo?

    We had just arrived at this beach, and my first view was through this natural frame.

    It was a picture begging to be captured.
