"That'll be us in 20 years"

"The title of this photo is 'That'll be us in 20 years'. This is what my wife said to me, just after I'd taken it. And she's probably right. We were in Ostend to do the 'Marvin Gaye Tour', but as we made our way to the tourist board offices to start the tour, we were distracted by these fantastic kites on the beach. I spotted this couple move towards the little balcony to see the kites and I sensed it might make a good shot. I took a couple of shots as they stood there, a small distance apart from each other. But then they moved together and the man put his arm round the woman just for a few seconds. And I was lucky to catch it. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed by the composition (ideally I would have got his feet in the frame). But it's often said that the moment is more important than the composition and that's probably true with this. The Hipstamatic combo is Lucas AB2 + Ina's 1982. The Ina's 1982 film is my go-to film but I hadn't used the Lucas lens before. It produces a great combination for summery beach shots."
