Every single day on the beach I watched this man working. He basically rents you a 'shadow' on the hot sand during the summer. The rent starts as soon as the sun rises and ends just before sunset. During this time he doesn't rest. He controls who is using the rented space and material without paying and makes new clients. His skin tone shows the dedication to his job. And, as any other business, he has 'regular' clients that know his story. Here he is packing everything to unpack again early in the morning of the next day. For some, Summer means beach, sea, sun, relaxation,... For him it means necessary money.
