Pilares de Piedras – Pillars of Pebbles

Aquellos de vosotros que siguen este blog saben que el domingo pasado me fui a hacer fotos del amanecer y después me quedé en la playa un ratito. Pues lo que vengo a contaros es que durante ese ‘ratito’ se me presentó otro momento creativo en forma de ver las torres de piedras creadas por Manu, un hombre que disfrutaba de una mañana en la playa con su familia de manera distinta.

Según Manu, él no es artista, sin embargo pasó todo su tiempo montando pilares de piedras dentro y fuera del agua. Buscó cada roca conscientemente, mirando su forma, peso y color – Y lo hacía por gusto. Me comentó que si no fueran esculturas de piedras, ¡haría castillos de arena!

Me encanto verle trabajar y ver como invitaba a los más jóvenes de su familiar participar en la actividad. Había muchas personas en la playa esa mañana pero solamente unas pocas le prestaron atención y menos gente aún le habló. Aquellos éramos los afortunados…

Quiero decirle a Manu gracias y espero que siga siendo creativo, siempre.

¿Veis como nunca hay que dejar tu cámara en casa o, en mi caso, en el coche? Nunca sabes lo que la vida te va a regalar…

Those of you who follow this blog will know that last Sunday I got up early to take photos of the sunrise at the beach and then I decided to spend the morning there. Well, what I would like to share with you today is the fact that during the course of that morning, I was presented with another creative moment. This time it was in the form of stone towers which had been built by Manu, a man who was at the beach with his family.

Manu told me that he was not an artist, yet he spent all morning creating pillars of pebbles both in and out of the water. He would look for each rock carefully, paying attention to its size, weight and colour – And all for enjoyment! He stated that if he wasn’t building stone sculptures, he would be creating sand castles!

It was wonderful to watch him work and see how he encouraged the younger members of his family to join in. There were a lot of people at the beach that morning but only a few actually stopped, taking a few moments to look and talk to him. We were the lucky ones in my book.

To Manu I say thank you and I hope you continue creating!

See how it is always a good idea to take your camera with you wherever you go? Life is full of surprises…
