A genre of photo agency photos very closely related to “Woman eating salad alone.”
I must confess: They are used, in MagLand, to illustrate relationship stories in summer, for e.g.
Also “romantic holidays for you your man” and “summer lovin’” etc etc.
Plus travel brochures, ads for insurance policies, viagra, bad seventies album covers.
Ahh. How MOR fantasy differs from reality.
Where’s their beech umbrella, Stingoze, Factors 30 through 80, sun hats, beach bats, beach chairs, towels, snacks, more snacks, beach reading, Things To entertain The Kids aka Boogie Boards, Skim Boards, Surfboards (“I’m not sure what I’ll want to do Mooooo…..ooooom?)
And how come their clothes are never sandy and/or wet?
And how come there are never any Jellies or Blue Bottles on these beaches?
Or anyone else with their children?
Why is the wind never blowing on these perfect beaches?
And why does the models hair always remain so perfectly glossy?
That’s what I want to know.
I found the images by doing a quick scan of Google Images.
There are, of course, many, many millions more where they came from.
That’s the point.
