    Hi everybody,

    I’m the person who submitted the photo initially – I’ve only just found out that the submission was accepted and has been online for over 2 1/2 years. It was taken on holiday in Turkey at some point in the late 1980s (hence the haircuts and Walkman) whilst visiting a distant relative of one of the group.

    As is obvious to everybody, one local somebody took a distinct shine to one of the visitors. It’s pretty much as bad as it looks.

    He was possibly just too embarrassed to say “can we wait for my thingy to go down…”. Sometimes it happens at the most inopportune moments..

    It’s the pleating on the speedo…it’s an optical illusion.

    I really wish whoever submitted this picture would explain it. I’m just trying to imagine who these three people are and what they are doing together in this photo. They all look so different.

      It was taken with an Pentax ME Super in 1986. Turkey. The guy was working at the place we stayed and it was stinking hot and he insisted we go to the local pool. Well … this picture was taken after we got out of the pool. Needless to say what he tried on in the pool. I should know, I was there and I took the photo.

    Ok, what I find fabulous is that this guy, apparently right out of the 70′s, exists somewhere here in the 21st centry as I notice that camera she is holding is digital!

    i don’t think the blond in blue was really with them, she just refused to move.

    I’m sensing the beginnings of a really bad comb-over. But, I’m also sensing that is the least of his “problem.”

  20. Ken says:

    AFP, don’t you think you getting a little borderline Internet porn here??

  21. Ken says:

    Oh…. hell…. no.

    Lord! He’d best be careful or he’ll hurt someone with that!

  27. Snivy says:

    If that’s the fourth hour, he needs to go to the ER. Stay thirsty, my friends…

  28. Kruzer says:

    Looks like they were taking turns teasing him for the last two hours with no relief then stopped for the photo.
