Amazingly, even though I'm from Singapore, I have actually been to East Troy about 20 years ago because a college friend used to live there. A really small town.

Great 4th of July photo.

Gorgeous photo. The image of her hand in the water lends this such a peaceful feeling. And wearing sneakers while she's in the water adds such character!

Often have to wear shoes in lakes due to rocks or mud or growth on the lake bed.
July 4, 2011 at 8:55 pm
I remember swimming at a lake in the later 50's. Wearing sneakers in the water was common because the bottom of the lake was usually muck and the shoreline rough with rocks and pebbles. They look like navy blue Keds.
July 4, 2011 at 10:04 pm
I love that she is wearing shoes!

When I swim in the Red Sea, i always wear shoes because the sea bed is rocky and full of tiny broken shells that could cut your feet.
I like the picture. She seems pensive even with her back to us.

oh, my! thats really beautifull and stylish!

The hair is so perfectly coiffed. Just screams for a dunking.
Black and white photographs are so beautifully evocative. They leave more to the imagination.
July 5, 2011 at 11:31 am
love the shoes in the water. gives it an "i'm so happy that i don't care" vibe :)
July 5, 2011 at 12:10 pm
Life was much more peaceful before Twitter.
July 5, 2011 at 2:55 pm

the shoes are for the shells and mud at the bottom of the river/lake.

Please forgive me if you are Scott and I just called you Samantha! I just went by the name under the photo and only afterwards discovered the name on the account.
Offer still stands though I’m a bit blushed by embarrassment if I’ve mistaken your identity.

The were tubing on the river and it’s still very rocky to this day,. They had no water shoes , and by the way she was my mom…âť¤ď¸Ź
