Description The subtitle of this image is 'Lifeguard at the Beach'. In the foreground you can clearly see the lifeguard in red reacting to a swimmer outside of the photo. What is the lifeguard saying? Is the swimmer listening? We know who is in charge here. This is part of a collection of photos taken between Memorial Day and Labor Day in Santa Monica in 2008.To view a larger image visit my website www.tom-hawkins.com
Tom Hawkins, Santa Monica Member Since January 2009 Artist Statement Please enjoy my Unique Photographic Art of beach scenes from around the world. The images in this gallery are beach scenes from Australia and California. Simple scenes of families and friends enjoying themselves while at a day at the beach. The Australian pictures were taken during Christmas at Bondi and Bronte Beach in 2005. The California pictures were taken at Santa Monica during the summer of 2008.
Imagine yourself within each scene; the hot sun blazing down at you, the scent of the salty air as it wafts past you, the smell of suntan lotion and the sounds of families enjoying themselves at the beach. As you stare at each photo see if you can listen in on the conversations being had on the beach. What do you hear?
