A Ball to Bring People Together Regardless of Gender or Race

I was walking on the beach at sunset last night and spent a few minutes shooting silhouettes of a group of kids playing their favorite game on the beach.

Le football, aka. soccer, is definitely the national sport in my country. I am fortunate to be home during the World Cup to support my team.

Allez les Bleus! I will be cheering for you tomorrow night during the quarter finals. A repeat of 1998 would be nice but… No pressure! ‘Le Foot’ is a beautiful game and it will always be my favorite team sport. Whether it’s on the beach, or on an old parking lot, the ball has the power to bring kids together regardless of gender or race.

  1. Great post, Valerie. You know you’ve combined three of my ultimate loves into a post…soccer, the beach, and photography! Since all the teams I was rooting for are out, France is the one I’m cheering for now! Go FRANCE Go! Thanks for all your amazing inspiration in photography.
