This was taken near Agadir in Morocco, during a local football game on the beach. The improvised football field was tightly surrounded by enthusiastic fans. This guy here, who probably found it difficult to obtain a good view of the match, positioned himself on a rock somewhat further away. I liked the way he looked isolated. So I composed the shot without the crowd, or the field.
