To me, this is a perfect candid photograph that captures the elusive, carefree element of summer. Beyond the lovely printed bias cut dress (I'm always looking for those on ebay...), look at how the heel of her right shoe meets her shadow. I love that this couple -snapped in 1930 by the invisible friend whose shadow you can see in the foreground- is playing around on the beach in California, but they are still dressed to the nines. Check out his spats!
