The endless playground
Local Basketball Pride
This photo was taken in September on my trip to Italy, Apulia (more precisely in Monopoli). I am always in the search of playgrounds because I believe they are reflection of local culture and people. It was lunch time thus there was no one playiny, unfortunately. However, my 2 big loves are swimming (foremr professional swimmer) and basketball, and this photo is special for me because the basketball field is located right next to the water. The blue colour of the field "continues" to the blueness of the Mediterranean sea. For that reason I have named it the endless playground. This photo is beautoful example of how diferent sports and subcultures (basketball, skating & swimming) can co-exists and bring diferent people together.
