I miss the beach

"Do you know where your heart is?
Do you think you can find it?
Or did you trade it for something somewhere
Better just to have it..."
- OneRepublic, Say (All I Need).

About this photo: Clicked on a crowded evening at Kovalam beach, Kerala, India, just before sunset.

These ladies were having a great time, the beach seemed to be crowded with them and their white sarees and their golden borders wherever I looked...probably a group visiting from somewhere...

Initially I was irritated with them because there was hardly any breathing space on the beach, but then the waves and the sunset finally did have their effect on me.

I calmed down quite a bit and started smiling aimlessly and staring at people unabashedly (top favourite hobby).

In this photo, I was happy to capture the pensive look on the face of the woman who's closest to camera... (hope you can make out which one I am talking about, she's sort of in the middle). She inspired the quote which goes with the photo (though I am pretty sure she wasn't thinking of any such things;).

EDIT: Okay, I am adding more photos to this post, because they're there, and they're nice.

This shows a close-up of the pensive lady, my muse, though not as pensive in this shot. Extreme left (or outermost) in the photo.

She was happy, laughing and dancing in the water, very child-like. Don't you see her laughing?
