The story behind the image

My mother had been for the first time in St.-Peter-Ording, Germany, a small community located directly at the North Sea, in 1943 when she was just one year old. After the Second World War, she returned frequently to this place with its long unspoilt beaches. She was in love with it, and it’s easy to see why.

This photo shows her during her last visit in the summer of 2003. She had returned to her hometown Kiel and could now enjoy Northern Germany much easier than before when she lived in Heilbronn, Germany, for about two years. She told me that she had been missing the sea and the rough weather of the North.
