Hot dogs and heatwaves

As Australia swelters in a summer heatwave, everyone’s heading to the beach. This classic shot from the black-and-white files of photographer Tommy Campion, taken in the 1980s on Surfers Paradise beach, is a reminder of two things.  Always swim between the flags, where lifeguards patrol, and make sure to protect your eyes from the sun.  Even the hounds do it.

A dog wearing sunglasses, says Tommy, is a photographers’ favourite.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

    It’s a paltry (in your terms) 29.5 degs at my place in Auckland today, but the humidity’s around 85-90% and I’m feeling very hot and sticky. Will be doing my swimming in a pool today though :)

    With trendy sunglasses and a fashionable haircut, the dog had tongues a-wagging on the beach, but he never did go out and rescue anyone from the surf.

      No Nita, Millie and this dog are generations apart…and never did meet on the beach (different beaches too!). So pleased you found my blog – hope you enjoy reading it!
