I love this picture. It was bought from the Internet and was delayed in its delivery which has had me hopping because I've been wanting to share it here ever since I saw it. When R saw it before I bought it, he commented that he couldn't tell whether it was sexual or violent - which is a very astute comment of course, but actually it is neither. And I think that ambiguity is one of the reasons I like it and why it is already on my wall in a frame. The labels on the verso give the game away of course... it's a 1967 press photo taken underwater of two lifeguards training in life-saving techniques.
