Photographer's Note

Just outside Stari Grad (Old Town) of Budva, and on the coastal path to Mogren Beach we found this lovely sculpture. It is work of the sculptor Gradimir Aleksić, who found his inspiration in a old local legend about a girl, who came each morning to the beach, spent her days looking at the open sea, waiting for her fiancé to come back to her. The years passed by, sailors came and went, but her fiancé never returned. One day, she was found dead on that rock, her look was aimed to the open sea.

I was busy taking a few photographs when a group of young people arrived. From their English conversation, I concluded that they were dancers from a cruise ship. As you can see, one of them decided to see what she could do. They didn't mind my snapping away: entertainers are basically exhibitionist after all.

I've added a WorkShop to show the Ballerina on her own. Not the girl: the sculpture!
