article imagePhoto essay: A little summer craziness in Fuengirola, Spain Special

By Anne Sewell     Aug 28, 2013 in Travel
Fuengirola - There's something about summer that brings out the fun side of people. They get a bit of summer sun and out come the crazies. Bring out a camera, and everyone wants to pose.
The writer is trying to get back into the habit of carrying a camera at all times. You never know what might happen when you turn the next corner. A Kodak moment could be pending.
For example, I wanted to get a shot of a small shopping mall in Fuengirola called Las Rampas.
While lining up the shot, these kids decided to get into the frame:

Then there were some ladies at the beach doing their exercises - couldn't resist a shot:

Walking along the beachfront, I came across a clown, looking rather sad. Everyone is trying to make a euro or two these days, and he was trying his best. Seems he was cooling off after performing in the heat.

And then there was the elderly lady, pootling along on her mobility scooter with a bright plastic windmill on the back:

Possibly the most surprising "Kodak moment" is below. I was walking along, minding my own business, when I heard the loud cry, "Foto! Foto!" It turns out that this group of guys were in town on a stag weekend.
In typical male style, they had dressed for the beach and got their gear together. However, being a stag weekend, there was no blow-up lilo (air mattress), for them. They had something much more interesting in mind for their water fun.
The guy on the left, posing to show me the back of his t-shirt ("the handsome boyfriend") is the up-and-coming groom:
