For this Sepia Saturday Suggestion
Without taking a scientific survey, I would venture that the single most common event for a camera to be included is a day at the beach. And there are certainly a lot of pictures taken at the old swimming hole or the city pool. There is a large collection of beach photographs in LOST GALLERY, almost 600 photographs so far. Many of them are of people just standing in the water.
So today for Sepia Saturday, lets create a new exhibit just for people standing shin deep in water.
No, not chin deep. Not elbow deep or ankle deep. Not waist deep or knee deep either.
They must be shin deep.
You know, committed but not certain. Eager but Wary. Reserving a bit. Testing. You know the type.
Harriet, I think there are fish in this water.
Well, I am not sure that this pair ever actually went into that water. It looks as if it is moving pretty fast. I think it may be just a pose. If they had tried to wade into that stream up to their shins, I think they would be up to their necks very quickly.
The reverse reads: "Ruth Stevenson and my self wading (on a) day when we were on a long hike."
Yes. Sure. A long hike. Just look at those rugged hiking togs.
So now, wade on back to the Sepia Saturday home page and find out who else is in the water.

THE KIDS 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.
