    Oh those Keds … I am almost old enough to remember wearing them in lakes to protect from the muck … a perfect summer/July 4th photo!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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