BALCON DE EUROPA EMERGES FROM THE SEA

NERJA by KRISS on 03 june 2016

Today was officially my first day cruising some of the beaches of Nerja with our underwater housing to offer people underwater and split shots.
And boy, it did feel awkward !

A few months ago, I set myself the challenge to invest in underwater photography equipment on the condition that I would make it profitable or at least not loose any money on it.
I came up with a plan and I am now offering underwater photography to people enjoying a bath on the beaches of the Costa del Sol !

It has been a long time for me since I last worked as a salesperson and I am not really good at it.
Being turned down time after time after time is one of the thing bound to happen when you offer people a service and now that I’m older I see a list of benefits :

- The experience is humbling.
- It forces me to interact with people.
- It teaches to be clear and concise.

But besides the human sociability aspect of the job I freely chose to undertake, there is another set of huge advantages :

- I get to spend time at the beach while working.
- I get to shoot people and I love it.
- I swim a lot with equipment which will certainly contribute to keeping me fit.
- I have to practice my Spanish !

Ok, today was my first day and I’ll see what my feedback is after a few days or weeks of the thing ! Interestingly enough, I am very dependent on the weather to do my thing and lately, the water in Nerja has been for from a turquoise lagoon with currents and tides and waves all the time.
It has been calm for the last couple of days and I hope it’s going to stay that way ! But it means that I won’t be working every day (I have a lot of other things to do besides) but I will take the challenge to do it as much as I can, discover new beaches around the area and meet people and perhaps newer artistic and photography opportunities !

Today I swam from Playa del Salon to Playa Carrabeo which is a long swim, not for a trained swimmer , but for me it is.
Tonight I am knackered but I feel a lot less anxious about going back tomorrow.
I have been turned down a few times, welcomed other times but at the end of the day I am offering good fun to people and a beautiful alternative to their beach selfies !

To illustrate this post and also as a title, I have chosen a couple of pics I took this morning in front of the Balcon de Europa, the famous feature of Nerja.
I love the one that gives the impression the rock on which the balcon is built emerges from the water in a split view !

And as for your photographs, check them out in the underwater section !
