I can’t decide if this looks like a husband and wife or mother and child! It makes me smile – so classic!
The Summerlands await. I’ll miss you, old friend.
The warm evening drew me out with camera. I played around until I found that 8 seconds shutter allowed the sandy beach to register, the water to smooth out, a touch of blue hour remained and while bright – hopefully the loading pier is still acceptable. The pilings in the foreground are the historical remnants of the shingle mills that lined our waterfront.
I was stationed at Camp Fuji Japan for awhile in the early 1970’s and this image was taken riding the train from Gotemba to Tokyo on a weekend pass. Just some young schoolgirls on their way to class…dang…now I see a failure in the 40 year old film but oh well, I still like it! ***Addition, Greg Stene took the time to Photoshop the big yellow blob out. His notes and the corrected image below original. Thanks Greg!
