ambivalent

İzmir, Çeşme, Şantiye Beach
I felt mixed emotions and had both positive and negative feelings when I noticed these battered showers that such a soft and gentle thing as water could possess such erosive capabilities, we know for a fact that this is indeed true. And I remembered Lao Tzu's quote: "Soft and yielding as it is, water is able to slowly change things that appear to be hard and inflexible."

The posts almost close the sea from the people, so it seems. Very good as a foreground to look through onto the wonderful colours of the sea.
