During my first tour to the island of St. Martin, few friends and I started to walk by the shore just after reaching there. Moments later we spotted these boys, who were playing football. We took some photographs, spend some time with them; and then when the sun had set in the blue water of the bay, the evening sky above, the magical light, and their spontaneous act of playing football seemed like made for each other. Certainly it was the best time to play football.
