At the fundraiser known as the Special Olympics Polar Plunge at the Columbia River on February 9, 2013, a lady in black and white completed her look with a pink swim cap and bouquet of pink fake flowers.

Wearing a handmade silk banner emblazoned with references to Polar Bear and Polar Plunge 2013, the lady carries her bag of dry clothing which she must have put down on shore before entering the water. In this photo it looks to me like she heard that photographer say something that made her look back toward him. She turned to look, mid-step.

I know you're all focusing on how tightly clenched her toes are on her left foot as she put on the brakes!

This might be my favorite pink photo so far. A frilly pink bathing cap? Who wears them these days? Fabulous.

Excellent!

Kay said...

So well done! Great shot!

Polar bear swimmers are a breed unto themselves. Outdoor swimming in winter is not for the faint hearted.

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Great captures! Makes one want to know more of her story. Certainly a pink stand out!

Lynette, that is a bathing cap from another era! I love the hot pink and she has such style to be freezing half to death!

Bises,

For some reason the pink bathing cap reminds me of Liz Taylor. There's something very retro (in a good way) about this scene.

Buck said...

I thought 'pink' was a difficult theme. Very nice to see a pink photo that shows off something about Portland. Love that she's mid-stride - adds enough action to make the photo really interesting.
