WET

It's summer! Time to get wet and cool off.

Unfortunately, I don't look good when wet. Heck, I have a hard time looking good even when I'm dry.



Cautious Entry


circa 1910


 1912

 1927

 1920's

Not exactly proper attire
for getting wet

1901
bathing suits hanging out to dry



Wash & Wear




Modeling clothes under water
not as easy as it looks


 You don't always have to be at the beach



Traditional swimwear is optional


Swimwear is optional


Reach out
and touch the sunset

 Cool Blue Pool

 Blue pool, blue sky


Blue Surf


Beside blue water

 Cooling all the curves

 you missed the boat


Drying Off

  1. Do you think the ladies in 1910 and 1912 thought their swimwear was really daring?

    1. They probably did - - but it must have been difficult and uncomfortable to swim in.

  2. Really enjoying your summer themes. You're keeping me entertained. Still perplexed as to how you come up with such amazing pictures.

    1. It's surprising what you can find on the Internet if you search hard enough.

  3. I'm appalled, Jon, appalled that despite all the aerobics of being a laborer and gardener for long enough to retire, my physique is closer to the ladies' pictured than the men's. Seems like a boy of 65 should be done with puberty and bulk up --like my kids have.

    1. I never really bulked up, either. I lifted weights for awhile in my early 20's but getting physically fit was never one of my priorities.

  4. Wet has never been a good look for me, either.
    ... Then again, I'm still hoping bathing attire from say, 1912 will come back in vogue.

    1. The 1912 look is nice for a woman, but not for a man. I never did look good in stripes.

  5. You gave an old lady a thrill. You wonderful man you. That water looks so inviting. After seeing these pics, the sand and surf are beckoning. Beautiful bodes. Even in my and my husband's good days, neither of us were that photogenic.

    1. Today is a world of fantasy. I believe in enjoying the water without having to look good.

  6. The woman in the 1910 shot reminds me of Marjorie Main.

    Once upon a time, long, long ago I could wear bikinis, along with mini skirts and hot pants. Today, not so much.

  7. She does resemble Marjorie Main. That 1910 photo was taken in England and I don't know who the people were.

    Remember the song "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini"?

    1. One, two, three, four - tell the people what she wore. It was an itsy bitty teeny weeny yellow polia dot bikini.
      Cute, cute song.

  8. Well that gave me something of a cheap thrill. Especially the last photo. I wish America was more "speedo friendly" or is that budgie smugglers?

  9. Hmmm, yummy pictures. I never saw so many rippling six-packs in one place before. The "touch the sunset" pic is cool, too.

    1. The sunset photo is so unusual. At first glance I didn't notice that she was touching the sunset.
