week 33 | Sam

Once again I left this portrait to the last minute so this afternoon I went down to the beach to look for someone to photograph. After a short sunny period it got really windy and cold again so I was hoping to find someone quickly. While walking along the seafront, admiring the massive waves crashing, I spotted a lifeguard and decided to ask him…

So this is Sam.
He’s from Australia and was almost done with his shift when I approached him. He was down at the beach since this morning but luckily nobody was crazy enough to jump into the stormy sea and had to be rescued today. I suppose he wouldn’t have been too keen to get in the water himself – for an Australian it must have been a rather cold day so please excuse him for wearing a wool hat šŸ˜‰
