While considered fairly modest swimwear
in the 21st Century…
an emotional state or reaction.
Feeling cooler……………………and worried
…these girls were applying suntan oil
to exposed parts of their body.
Sun lovers on the French Riviera did not seem
to worry about protecting themselves.
Back in September/October I would have posted
this image as seasonal.
A few years ago the camera club to which I belong
found cheap day return airfares to Sydney.
Even though the christmas season was with us
Manly’s Beach was crowded with sun lovers
trying to escape the early summer heat.
However, there is only one season…
…during which these ornaments are…
…on display in our house.
In early December 2015 I took up the offer
of a day trip to Sydney with the Camera Club.
Although the sun was out I didn’t think it hot.
However, this photo shows part of
the Manly Beach crowd on that weekday.
Sydneysiders obviously disagreed with me
and thought it warm enough to warrant
a splash in the sea.
Some of Vancouver’s
Giant Laughing Statues…
…in Stanley Park.
Father after receiving his wig for his
74th birthday about ten years ago.
That year he had been treated for breast and
at least one other type of cancer…maybe two.
He celebrated his 86th birthday in mid-October.
Too cold for a photography outing this weekend
so I have had a look at some images
Not sure if I noticed the couple before
or after I took the shot, however…
…from the wide angle comes a nice photo of a couple.
…and this one…
…blended to create this image posted in
‘Capture the Moment’
for last week’s
Saint KIlda Pier…
…the wide angle shot cropped to focus
on the model and photographer.
Both model and photographer were participating
in this shoot to fulfil requirements
of a course they were taking.
Maybe…in this crop…
…and maybe not, the more space
they have around them.
From this crowded scene comes many stories.
One of which could be:
‘The shark was this big, dead set!’
This game of badminton and its two spectators
…right here on Sydney’s
Last summer was a bad summer
for fires in Australia.
However, there is rarely a summer when
we don’t have scenes like this
by fires somewhere in our dry land.
