Photograph Showcase: Swimming Fun

I love my Grandma’s expression in this photo!  She is on the far left in the dark, solid-colored suit.  Her brother appears to have caused a little trouble as he is being pursued by the woman in the center.  I can’t decide if she is about to splash him or dunk him.  I’m sure he earned it either way.

The water movement details around the woman in the center are cool.

This photo is labeled simply with, “June 1949.”  Unfortunately, I don’t recognize anyone beyond my Grandma and her brother.

Happy Thursday!  I hope you and yours are all well and safe.  xoxo

  1. Dad and I zoomed in on the image last night and he couldn’t identify anyone else, but the lady in the center could be grandma estelle, she has on a wedding ring and it would be like Dad to have teased her somehow that would make her go after him, it also makes me wonder who Deanne is looking at on the shore taking the photo. Love to you and your family in isolation!

    1. Thank you, Heather. Yes!! Who was she looking at? Obviously someone who made her laugh. I wonder if she was part of the antics too or just laughing about whatever your Dad had done. 🙂
