Scheveningen is a popular beach town in Den Haag (The Hague). Once temperatures start to raise, crowds of people come to enjoy of the sun by doing one of the many activities that the port has to offer. Wind chimes and seagulls provide the soundtrack to this unique Dutch experience.

Those adventuring to the waters of the North Sea have to be careful of the many surfers, some experienced, some just truying it out. On a hot day, there is hardly a free spot on which to lay your towel. This photo explores the dynamism of this beach town during a warm summer day, depicting the way infrastructure enables multiple spaces of social practice.
