Shadow Shot Sunday - Sixties shoreline sibling shadows

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back, and as no out-of-state vacations/holidays are planned this year, I refer back five decades ago (alas, I am that old :) to the year 1961 and shoreline shadows on the beach of the sandy Atlantic barrier island, Brigantine New Jersey. Then, it was a family of five children at the time and the four rows of the Sea Gull Cottages was where we stayed. Shadows abound as Grandpa liked to take pictures - and on these sunny days, with shadows falling into the briny surf at low tide. And the briny salt air - as much a treat now as it was way back then...

Fun shadows shots, Ralph, and it's always fun to reminisce! Mmmm, let's see -- 1961 was the year after I had graduated from high school and the summer after my first year in college! Now see what a youngster you still are!!! Hope you have a great weekend and maybe even some decent weather???? I hope!!!

Hello Bro!

First of all, HURRAY to your Mum. She looks gorgeous with 5 children. I now compare on today's mums (no often to new generations) they only get one kid and the bulging overflous fat hanging. That's what we call the good old days.

Great shadow shots as always.

Happy w/end to you and Mrs. P.

I absolutely love those visits back in time-so retro, so nostalgic, so classic! Summertime fin at the beach-that's what I'm thinking of today.

Always so intriguing to see retro photos! The eye checks the fashions, the buildings and the hairstyles - to get a sense of the time! Great summer smiles all round in these photos!

You are fortunate indeed to have a record of shadows that disappeared decades ago!
