Beach near Carmel, California, January 1966

On a warm January day, Dick and Mimi and I spent some time on a small beach south of Carmel. I'm not in the habit of posing friends for formal portraits, but when Dick and Mimi sat together on a driftwood log, they looked as if they were sitting for a portrait. I aimed my camera, they looked at me, and I took this shot. (For some reason the Webmaster has not yet deciphered, it's extraordinarily difficult to produce a sharp Jpeg of this image. Photographic prints, however, are perfectly sharp.)
