Seafarer by Andy Massaccesi in Velvet Beach, Senigallia, Italy

Sometimes my friends jokingly ask me, “Andy what would you like to be when you grow up?” I always reply, “Maybe the lifeguard, why not?” All in all, its hard for an Italian seafarer to live too far from the sea for long. So when I found time I moved up on the top of a beach tower… and waiting! Surely from up there you can meet a lot of people.
