The Sepia Saturday suggestion for today:
This week's suggestion, as usual, pointed in several directions. One might have collected some photographs of just places with no people in them or maybe photographs of boats or maybe just photographs that include water.
Photographs seem more interesting with people in them however. There are more stories.
So since this suggestion includes a touring boat with probably lots of tourists, I decided to go with a collection photographs of people on a boat in the water.
Yeah, I know; it's a stretch.
Here is a common pose:
A girl in a boat.
Why is this popular?
Is it because the camera was handy while loading the boat?
Or is it because the sweetheart just looked so trusting and lovely the photographer couldn't resist?
Once again I leave my favorite to the last.
Marvin missed the boat completely.
He would have been on the boat but he carelessly left it parked at the shore without anchor or dock line, while he visited the hot dog stand.

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.
