Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Fashion

~~~~~

 

Fashion of all sorts.

A drawing from my Mother-in-law’s school sketch book.

Her daughters did not know she had this until

after she passed away a couple of years ago.

 

And it seems only a few years ago that

London model Twiggy,

caused a furore at the Melbourne Cup

wearing a mini skirt two whole inches

above the knee.

Hemlines have certainly changed since 1965.

 

 

 

Fashion on the gold fields in mid 1800s.

Being married anywhere is now fashionable.

Bride’s dresses have changed considerably

since the late 1970s and mid 80s.

In  my twenties I did like to dress formally for a night out.

Sadly I don’t go out as much and formally has

taken on a whole new meaning.

Fashion on a Rivera beach, Nice to be precise,

is much more relaxed.

I believe this beautiful Athabaskan

coat and hood was for formal wear.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Lady

~~~~~

lady

a polite or formal way of referring to a woman.

Recently I posted a photo of

some young ladies paddling

on Lake Lucerne.


  These young ladies (and gents) were cooling down

at Sydney’s Manly Beach a few years ago.

 

The youngest did not ask Mum’s permission

to cool down.  -)

FOWChallenge-Common

~~~~~

Legs and feet…

…something common…

…to many of earth’s creatures.

 

 Something else common…

 

…is the fact that…

 

…some legs and feet…

…are more pleasing to the eye than others.

 

Another commonality…

 

…is that legs and feet can reflect the size…

 

…of the body being supported.

FOWChallenge-Skimp

~~~~~

skimp

expend or use less time, money, or material on something
than is necessary in an attempt to economize.
“don’t skimp on insurance when you book your holidays”
a fashionably short or revealing garment.
“she wore a yellow skimp”

Not many years ago this hemline…

…would have shocked everyone.

Now it is rather conservative.

The bikini clad sun lovers are borderline skimpy

by today’s standards.

As I don’t shoot many people in skimpy attire,

I  had too search photos like this to find…

to find any skimpy or not so skimpy clad

beach goers at Sydney’s Manly Beach.

My first thoughts were of regular limbs such as…

sun baking legs, and…

performing arms.

Then today we visited two of

New Zealand’s Waitomo Caves and I

could not help but think these

stalactites and stalagmites

looked a bit like limbs stretching out

to greet each other

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Heat

~~~~~

Our largest source of Heat,

the Sun,

drives many people to our beaches

during the summer months.

These sun lovers on and along Lake Lucerne had

shed their day wear for beach attire on a day

which most of us thought was pleasant but not hot.

However, I’m sure there a plenty who would

have a chuckle at me saying a day

was chilly, temperature under 20 degrees Celsius,

and cold under 10 degrees.

All a matter of perspective.
