Party Time!

No comments.-

Bobbing for apples photographed by beaches photographer Virgil Deane. This wonderful image was one of several hundred loose and un-captioned prints that were given to me after they were saved from the curb awaiting garbage pickup.

Young Love

One of the more playful images from the box of Virgil Deane’s photographs that I received. Seemed appropriate for a Valentine’s Day post.  Anyone at Jacksonville’s beaches know the identity of these young and somewhat reluctant models?
