Are you beach body fit?

No time to swap lenses and get the 40-150 out of my backpack so I used the 12-40 I had on the camera at the time. Are you this fit and ready for the beach?







Now to check out the pictures and post to social media...

I'm chunky (so I should be at 70).......but I still can't do that ...... in fact never could but, yes, I agree

I bet they didn't get the great reflections you did though, OM User. Nice captures

Re: Are you beach body fit?

I'm certainly not that fit; not even in Photoshop could I do backflips like that, but I'm betting that our Prime Minister is about to do a big one on his "tax reform" policy (less tax for the filthy rich!).

Sorry OM, I wandered off topic there for a bit ... it's always a joy to see young people having fun, especially if they're females! Hope the lass taking pictures doesn't drop her tablet in the water.

And by the way, what were you taking pictures of them for, eh? I thought I was the only sleaze bucket on this forum, although I'm really no match for Beagletorque !

You, a sleaze bucket, Mark? Never! I have to say, they are a bit young for my taste...I think. You know you're getting old when you start fancying 50+ year olds!

They are young and fit (well, one of them is fit). I see nothing wrong in that; they look fine to me.

Thanks Keith. I almost put one of these in to the "reflections" competition but thought I was outclassed so kept my original entry.

Thanks Mark. I'm not that fit either. The beach is there to be enjoyed by all, including photographers.

Keith, by that criterion, I'm old! (they don't yell, tell or swell ... )

OM, Indeed, for who am I to moralise?
