Ambassador Hotel

Marilyn Monroe in the gardens of the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles,, 1946. Photograph by Larry Kronquist .

Beach Bum

A barely there swimsuit. Probably an incredibly expensive swimsuit as well. You know, it might be easier going to a nude beach? No fashion pressure on a nude beach. Well, except for ear rings. And bracelets. Nail polish. Standard of manicure & pedicure. Beach bag. Towel … Forget it. Fruit cocktail on the patio sounds far more appealing.

Summer Light

Photograph by Italian photographer Franco Fontana who is clearly interested in the interplay of colours and light with water. He tends to ignore faces. His photos have been used as album cover art for jazz records.

Just a Gigolo

Are you ready for the plot of this vintage picture? He is a gigolo! You can immediately tell by the swimmers, right? The ladies have hired him and, no, not for swimming lessons! See what happens here!

Pool Domination

Well, it is summer, is it not? Why not be cool while a submissive man adores your feet? Wonder where it is? (Origin unknown.)

Sun & Sand

I do like the photographer/stylist kept the sand on the bottoms. Nice touch and, in a way, draws the eye to those lovely derrieres.
