At The Beach - Page Six

At the Beach. PAGE SIX!

The trip to the beach almost always includes a camera. LOST GALLERY rescued photographs taken at the beach are plentiful, rivaling pictures of children and cars and Mom's new dress.

So let's go to the beach.

Some of these are family gatherings, others are guys showing off and then there are the glam pictures of mom or the girlfriend. Most are really poor snaps while others are from professional itinerant photographers out making a buck at the beach.

As you review the many prints on these pages, think about the conversation that preceded the shot. Think about the expressions on their faces, the hot day, the sea air, the sounds. Are you there yet?

As always, just click on the picture to go to a larger version.

THE KIDS Lesson one. It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.

  1. I Love The Seaweed Dresses!!!!

    1. Thanks tony. It's difficult to believe there were girls that were willing to get close to slimy seaweed.

  2. you know it's lovely that these women are all shapes, ages and sizes, and they all look happy with themselves, confident, and quite comfortable to show be seen as how they are. that's so refresihing compared to all today's hang-ups.

    1. I agree completely. Today's "standards" for appearance are just bunk. Trying to measure up to a magazine cover or a music video is just a waste of time and imagination.
