Beach Babes- the prototypes


a Poem, a Photo & some Music...


Beach Babes

Deckchair at the ready.
Let a little weather stop Nan?

Coat goes over school shorts.
He grabs his bucket, spade and
wooly hat.

Bundled up, they join the
be-suited coat-clad crowd.
They wash over the sand
like city seaweed.

The picture that inspired the poem.
(Mass Observation exhibition, The Photographers' Gallery 2013.)
I think the mood fits.
