Adolescence (growing up) was a transitional stage of physical and psychological development. In my life, it lasted from puberty to adulthood: my teenage years and my early twenties.
After returning back to the country, I was enrolled into an old red-brick building school with strict rules. One boy in my class payed quite a bit of strange attention to me, often in a naughty or disruptive manner. I ignored him for a while, but something in his daring persistence appealed to me, as well as his exceptionally good looks. We started talking, and then started going for long walks by a river.
This photograph I took on one of the walks. I just started with dark room back then, so this film was poorly processed.
