On a bright hot afternoon while in Boracay in the Philippines, I saw these black figures running around from a distance on a nearly empty stretch of beach. Almost like a mirage they would go in out of the shallow water then play on the beach their skin dark like ivory and in full contrast to the beautiful fine white sand of Boracay.
