Photographer's Note

I go from one odd photo to another.

This is from Batumi, the Georgian "summer capital" at the Black Sea, close to the border with Turkey. One of the days I spent there a few years ago the clouds were heavy, occasionally bringing showers, and the sea was shrouded in this strange, greenish haze.

Batumi is known for its long beach attracting people from all over the country during summer months. There are lots of casinos, night-clubs and restaurants and strangely designed luxury hotels of international chains are mushrooming all over town. Personally I was not at all attracted by this pebbly beach, and on this dull day before the season had taken off there were very few others seen here, except for a minor army of idle life-guards.

I have added two workshop photos. Here is a larger version of the main upload.
