On different occasions, the sea and friends afforded enthralling views, conversations, and lasting memories. Below, scenes from Deir Al Balah coast, central Gaza, where I caught the sunset and moonrise in the company of a friend, his wife, and family.

*Ibrahim, who adores his daughter Tala.
*Ibrahim’s mother, sister, and nephews.
*The sun in Gaza disappears so quickly…
On another occasion, further along the coast, a late afternoon early evening visit to the beach provided glimpses of friends knocking around a football, horse and camel riders, couples strolling, and the sunset.
