The story

I was travelling around a few days with my daughter [15 years young]. We were driving and sleeping in our van. Just wanted to show her the beauty of ordinary things... One morning we visited an abandoned station, and we both were taking pictures of rust, dirt and broken windows. Then this couple wandered into our view. We found the beauty of ordinary things!

    Llorenç Rosanes (Deleted) said (29 Jan 2010):

    I am not going to deny that it's a marvelous photo, the whole entire girl (wow) and the opportunity that you had (perfect). But do I wonder if what is seen in the background is a person loading an enormous box? Completely foreign to the nakedness of the girl?

    Dear Llorenç, what you see in the background is a non movable object [something with electricity]. Now you pointed at that thing I see a person loading an enormous box... haha, even that person is not in a hurry. But seriously, I understand your problem with it.

  • Llorenç Rosanes

    Llorenç Rosanes (Deleted) said (29 Jan 2010):

    No no no, it is not any problem for me, simply I was hallucinating because I would not give the back to so many beauty that walks towards me...

    first. congrats for the fine capture. Second: I have to disagree with you and with many of the fellow members. There's nothing ordinary about her. she has a gorgeous ass. To me is more about the beauty of a great booty.

    What makes this even more eye-grabbing is that she's casually holding her hand on her head, and he is apparently carrying her undergarments on his shoulder. Did you get any others in a sequence?
