I’ll probably get a lot of flak for this image but here it is anyway. While in Portland last week we tried to get on a harbor cruise to see the lighthouses, one of those touristy things to do. It was sold out but if we waited a few minutes they would know if there were any no-shows. I sat on a low bench to get in some people watching. As my eyes roamed around I noticed these young girls walk up to the ticket window. That’s when I realized just how low the bench was and the perspective it offered me. When I was in my 20′s or 30′s or 40′s or 50′s, short shorts would always catch my attention. Now that I’m in my 60′s I must admit short shorts still catch my attention. However, I respond differently. I now ask why they dress like this while back then that question never entered my mind. I just smiled and stared. Since I had my camera with me, a low perspective , and I had a subject of attraction, I took one shot. Short shorts for sure.
