When my brothers and I were little, our parents used to take us to the beach on a regular basis. We spend endless hours playing with the waves, building castles in the sand, jumping around in the dunes. Now, halfway through my twenties, being in and by the ocean is as good as therapeutic to me. I know I share this feeling with many others across the globe. Whether it is diving, surfing, swimming or just being near the ocean, I cannot get enough of it and I know I will always be drawn to her mysterious ways. These photos are just meant to share some moments, since they cannot do full justice to the strong connection I have with the ocean.
I hear your whispers Break the silence, and it calms me down. Your taste on my lips, Your salty kisses.
They say I'm seeking out the danger. That one day you won't let me go, I'll drown, you'll take me down I need you Aquarius, Enchanted I will have to stay. I feel you Aquarius, Cause you -the sea- set me free. You call to me Aquarius. You call to me, you set me free
I relinquish to your powers. From your grasp, I just can't hide. I missed the danger I had to conquer. You made me feel alive.
They say I have to be aware, That one day you won't let me go, I'll drown, you'll take me down.
I need you Aquarius, Enchanted I will have to stay. I feel you Aquarius, Cause you the sea set me free. You call to me Aquarius.
