Photographer's Note

The deserted beach of Lido di Ostia.
Most beaches in Lido di Ostia are not public – they belong to companies that rent little beach houses. In this (March) off-season period a major operation was taking place - the removal of the upper layer of the beach and the adding of a fresh layer of sand, pumped in from the sea bottom. This involved large bore pipes and caterpillars. The beach looked a bit like an industrial site. In the part of the beach where this picture was shot the new layer of sand was in place. All the little beach houses were boarded up, except one. One wonders why.
PS-E tech: rotated, sharpened, saturated and a pole cloned out. Some shadow-parts of the picture are treated with the dodge brush. The rust on the metal fences is enhanced with the burn brush. Saved for the web.
