This post reminds me of beach life on the French Riviera;-)
Warmly hopes you are well, my lovely!

I love these! They make me happy. The one of the old guy's blowing hair made me literally LOL. :)

Old people are just so darned cute.

My Dad used to have a comb over like that. When the wind would blow, I would laugh my ass off...and piss him off. The man went thru so much hair spray! When he broke his femur last year, he shaved his head and let his hair grow back naturally. It looks so much better, but I kind of miss making fun of him about it!

I linked to you about the pony lady. She's too old to be a pony, though. A nag lady is more like it!

UGH I can sooo relate to these pictures; living with old people is simply ridiculous, in both a good way and a bad way.

one of my favorite things to see is on a windy day, comb overs blowing the wind. i almost got into a car accident once when i seen a really gorgeous one just a flying by a thread of hair.
i really loved that one and the lawn bowling one. i love seeing oldies lawn bowling as well..hehe. i don't so much like being stuck in traffic behind them though. some of them move at a snail's pace.
i'm blabbing caffeine style so i'll shaddup.
i just love this series of photos. they all tell a story!!

Kitty Stampede said...

That first one is really strange, with the blurry lady in the foreground and the background all clear. I like! And the one with the old fella's comb-over blowing out of place cracks me up! It reminds me of when i was a kidly in primary school (Probably what you guys would call "grade school"
?) and our principal had this ginger comb-over.One day when he was addressing us all at morning assembly (which was outside) it was a particularly windy day, and the wind blew his lovely do right over, and his hair was so long, and sticking out to the side with the baldness on top it looked hilarious! All we kids just couldn't stop laughing, which made him angry- which in turn made the situation all the more amusing :)

Tracie said...

I love these! Love the perspective/composition of them.

PS My dad had a combover for years. I was so happy when he finally shaved his head.

Iva said...

wow these are really awesome! I'll save my listing of which ones are my fav LOL. But there is something about the lady with the rain cap {?} that keeps me looking a lot at her. I'm off to go read about the photographer! I feel like I'm missing something...and I really want to know more! :)

I hope you had an awesome Friday!! WOOOHOOO WEEEKEND! Have a great one!

Alisa said...

I see these and think Florida!

Sixpence and a Blue Moon said...

These look like fun people - anyone who wears flowers on their hat and flipflops has to be spunky and fun.

Have a wonderful weekend! :)

tulpen said...

bananas. said...

freaking AWESOMENESS right there sir!

the shaved heads and crotch shot have to be my favorite. i also love the vintage look of these images.

ANDWHATELSEISTHERE said...

all these retro images are way too mindcapturing and awesome. it almost feels like a breeze is catching my face from the computer screen.

now that sounds pathetic haha.

Marsi @ The Cottage Cheese said...

Really nice captures of sort of everyday moments, but he makes them seem so important.

Kristine said...

I love these! They make me feel summery and happy and then kind of wistful as well. I think old people have that effect on me. Love the colours!
