I like this image. She is waiting for her paddling while looking at the paddle that is going to sting her. She wants the paddling and spending a few moments in contemplation that will help get her mind in the place she needs it. In a few minutes, she will stand, hand the paddle to the man, turn around, bend over, place her hands on the bench, arch her back, lift her chin up and wait for the sting of the paddle.
Seeing this lass while beach walking would make me stop in my tracks. Such sweet cheeks. And that paddle would fit them just right.
This picture brings back memories of youth and spring for me.
