Wonderful vintage snapshot of two young beach goers. Love the outfits. I'm guessing this is from the early 60's. I would have been distressed to be the girl in this photo, as the boy's outfit is so much cooler than hers. What's up with the swim cap head? I wouldn't mind having a hat and shirt like his right now!

Just another day in paradise, and another example of the odd things I've got in my stash of collectibles.

  1. Oh no no no...these are no mere beachgoing kids and that's no swim cap. Look, you can see the antenna on top of it. It's some kind of alien space cap. Clearly these two are aliens trying to pass as human, that's why they have the odd stance - they aren't used to standing like us. If you look at the reflection of their legs in the wet sand you can see their actual skin appearance, rubbery or actually kind of like a balloon animal. Our sun must be too strong for the "boy's" balloon-animal skin, thus he wears a big hat...god, this was taken fifty years ago...who knows what they'v accomplished or where they are now...
