OK,

Here is my contribution to the contest...This is me at the beach 50 years ago in 1959.

I don't have any memory of this time or place but this past summer I had the opportunity to return there for the first time since then.

The beach is Old Orchard Beach, Maine which is on the southern coast of Maine near Portland.

I wish I had never left Maine as it is such a beautiful place. I will be returning every year from now on as long as I am able!

Yes Marc!

Just what I have been waiting for! Just think, if you hadn't been there then what you now know and enjoy about the place you may never have experienced.

I've got snap shots like that and even older.

Do you think it was taken with an old Box Brownie?

Thank you for entry, loved it!

Regards,
Marylyn(SuperNan)

A Day at the Beach

Hi Marylyn,

I will have to ask my parents to see if they remember what type of camera was used for this picture. I don't think there were a whole lot of choices back then. Judging by the square shape of the original, it could be a Brownie.

Regards,

Marc

A Kid, a bucket, a spade, the water and a stretch of sand!
Makes for one great day at the beach and great memories.
I enjoyed the snap shot.
Must go have a look in the old shoebox. See if I have some.

Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
