On the beach



Nothing very profound from me this week, just a small selection of family beach photos that I vaguely compare with the Robinson Crusoe prompt. The subjects range from Mary at Phillip Island in 1947, through her son (c.1972), daughter-in-law and a couple of grandchildren at various beaches in more recent years, down to her great granddaughter Isabelle holidaying at Broadstairs Kent in 2015. Whilst they appear as solitary figures, of course none of them are Robinson Crusoe, as the saying goes, because naturally all the photos would have been taken by their companions.

  1. Quite right, Jo. We do tend to forget the photographer.

  2. There may be someone else nearby taking the photo but it's nice to see beaches uncluttered by hordes of people. Happy memories.

  5. You are quite right - you are never alone in a beach photo (although the selfie-stick may have changed all that) I wonder if Robinson Crusoe used a selfie stick or whether Man Friday drew that illustration.

    1. I was thinking just that - he used a selfie stick, Robinson Crusoe that is - after he made a camera from flotsome and jetsome.

  9. How I miss the beach! I love that the dress style is for cooler weather in most photos! Typically Victorian :)

    1. Four of the six photos were taken on Victorian beaches, but the one at centre top was on Kangaroo Island in April 2012, so not swimming or sunbathing weather really.
