AWESOME KITE

PORTUGAL by KRISS on 26 april 2017

While “don’t talk to strangers” may be sound advice when you’re a kid, when you grow up, you might want to turn that one around into “talk to strangers”.
Because that’s how you’ll trigger short moments of sharing with other human beings and create unexpected sparkles of fun ! Then I am not encouraging you to talk to the creepiest of guys on the street for that sake, but once in a while engaging with people outside of your comfort zone might be a good idea.
Anyways, you are already very sociable and don’t give a crap about what I am saying and you’re right !

That’s however how I met a lovely german couple with their baby on a beach in Portugal.
I spotted the lady flying a kite from the distance and thought “this is an excellent subject to shoot that fisheye lens I purchased for underwater photography !”.
So I walked up to these guys and asked if I could take a few pictures to which they agreed.
We started talking and one thing leading to another, the woman (I am sorry I know you guys gave me your names but I am very bad at remembering names - though I think you were Julia) offered me to try flying the kite and I am very happy she did !

Flying a kite was one of those crappy kid’s memories for me.
I got a kite once which was a cheap cross shaped plastic thing that broke after half an hour trying and failing to fly it.

This new experience reset the clock and now kite is associated with a fun time with a couple of strangers on a beach in Portugal ! That is smashing, thank you guys !
