Beach readers ... 2


It's quite incredible , well to me at least , the number of different positions that we human beings  manage to crunch ourselves up in to in order to read on the beach ...

hmmm... you amazed by positions, while I'm amazed by the shapes and forms here. smile
Excellent take, Richard.
Richard Trim: Thanks Victor. I did think the way she was laying was rather classical and artistic ... but as you say .... I was focusing on the variety of positions in my initial blurb. cheers richard

LOL at VZ and I agree with him! The bath-cloth and the lady look attractive! It is such a typical beach-scene and position-relaxing pure- but some minutes later she is going to turn her body and the newspaper pages (and another pic will follow)!
Richard Trim: Yes Philine A somewhat classical and artistic way of lying I feel ... Some things are instinctive for some ladies ;-) richard

I love the different patterns contrasting with the grainy sand and the smooth skin. I'm always amazed at the clarity of your pictures - have you got some special clarifying software or is it just sheer skill?!
Richard Trim: It certainly works well in monotone Ingrid ... I would like to think that its just my sheer skill ...;-) ;-) but its a common place free download that suits me for most of my utility fiddling ( if you want to know the secret let me know).
A more traditional position Richard. I really like the tones! Cheers. Richard
Richard Trim: Traditioanl and almost classical Richard ...cheers richard
you've got this retro thing going!!

she's well hidden against the towel.

Richard Trim: Certainly the costume has a great retro feel ... cheers richard
Another interesting photograph in an interesting series.
Richard Trim: I don't suppose they will be so interesting ... more what we would expect ... but you'll have to wait and see. Cheers Chad . richard

Striking combination of pattern against stripe. Sometimes I wish I could switch my own vision to B&W at will. I am sure I would have missed the MC Escher lizards in colour. A likey!
Richard Trim: Thought that being a dog that you only saw in black and white as it is. ;-)
Goodness a likey Mike .. I feel honoured ... many thanks. richard

Hmm, that does look uncomfortable smile
Richard Trim: Not everyone thinks that Martin ... but I see what you mean. richard
Excellent shot, can't image how you weren't noticed. Reading while a hot bright sun is beating down on you isn't my idea of enjoying a good book. Love the tones and processing, great image!
Richard Trim: Its surprising what i have got away with over time John. thanks for the comments . richard
Interestingly if you look at the angle of her head she is not actually reading the paper but ogling the nudist gentlemen playing tennis further down the beach!
Richard Trim: I noticed that but my conjecture of what she was looking at was a tad more prosaic. richard
Richard Trim: Don't tell her that will you Kavita. richard
We're very flexible creatures Richard
Richard Trim: Mentaly or physicaly at our age Chris?

This works well Richard, she looks quite comfortable to me.
Richard Trim: Martin doesn't think so Brian. richard
Strange when you think about it. you go to the beach, put on the bathing outfit spread out the towel...then read the ruddy paper!

great shot but I doubt the person would agree
Richard Trim: It's embedded in us from early child hood Bill. cheers richard
hmmm you don't go for the 36-26-36's then Richardgrin

wonderfully observed in your usual in obtrusive waysmile
Richard Trim: Don't expect me to comment on that tim ;-) thanks loads richard
Love the wave forms in the beach towel and the texture in the sand. great image.
Richard Trim: I must admit I like all the different things you bloggers pick up on. Cheers John. richard

Of all your 'beach reader' shots I think this is the best.
The contrasting patterns, the figure shape, the texture of the sand, the overall composition, the profile, the disembodied shoes, the 'magic carpet like' towel, all make it a bit of a winner I reckon.
Richard Trim: Good to hear from you again Roy. As you already know I always appreciate your wise words... They are valued in many ways. Just browsed your Bedford River post. Being born and having lived in Cambridge for all of my formative years I have a strong affinity with the Fens and in fact based my geographical dissertation on aspects of it. Many thanks richard
