Movement at the Beach

A portrait-oriented picture looking along a curving grass verge with a construction fence on the left and parked cars in the background. The fence has two separate coverings: a padded green plastic overlay in the foreground with white, illegible text, and beyond that a grey sheet made of woven plastic, like raffia. The bottom of the sheet has lost many lines of horizontal weave, leaving long thin tassles like a fringe all the way along. A strong wind lifts the sheet so that it bellies out over the grass, its tassles whipping and flying. Parts of the sheet, and sections of the tassled fringe, are blurred by their movement, while others are frozen by the camera and appear sharp.
