    What They Were Thinking: Enjoying the air

    Stan Grossfeld/Globe Staff

    Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot.

    What’s up today: Michele Benisti of Livorno, Tuscany, in Italy kitesurfs in the Caribbean Sea just before sunset, Feb. 2, 2014.

    Benisti: “I’m thinking I feel free, and that’s a great feeling. I like to defy gravity. I like to fly. I skydive for work at Skydive Aruba. I’m used to doing tricks at 10,000 feet, so this to me is really easy. Of course, I’m showboating doing this. The more you like it, the more I like it.”
