The story behind the image

I’ve posted a photo called Crusoe a while ago, a footprint at the beach right before it is about to be washed away by a wave.

Revisiting my archive I found a similar shot, created in 1995 on slide film. To my surprise it shows the print of a sneaker sole! So I named this image Modern Crusoe. After all, it could be the trace of a sneaker-wearing Robinson. 🙂

Have a great day, folks.
