This is a photo I took walking along the Dutch coast line, from where I'm standing, one can see Belgium on the horizon. A sailing boat came into view & I noticed all these individual groups of folks, each individually going about, the business of enjoying their day on the beach.
Mark Clarivette GERMANY
My name is Mark Clarivette, I'm 48 years young, I live in Germany, originally from South Africa & I love to take photos. The first camera I owned was back in the early 90's , I remember it was a Nikon & I took it with me on a 3 month road trip around South Africa. I didn't even know how to use it properly. I only have a few pics from that trip because I only had about 2 rolls of film with me. I ended up selling that camera to buy a plane ticket to come to Europe. Since then I have always borrowed a camera & when cellphone cameras became a thing, I shot on my phone. In 2017 I bought my first digital camera & now I enjoy just walking around & taking photos of anything & everything. When the time allows & I am not working. I work in child care & this gives me the opportunity to take lots of photos of children & the beauty & gift of their innocence. These pics will never be published & I generally just give the photos to their parents, who are always happy to get a glimpse of what their kids have been getting up to. This also gives me great joy & a wonderful opportunity to learn how to make pictures.
I would consider myself to be a hobby photographer & my dream, when I grow up, is to be able to make a few bucks from the photos I like taking.
