People Along The Way

Lawrence Bridges

1. FIVE LADIES FROM OSAKA. Kamakura in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. I’ve never before seen five ladies having so much fun together.
2. MUSCLE BEACH, VENICE, CALIFORNIA. People come from around the world to see the Boardwalk. The locals are all muscle-bound.
3. MAN IN CINQUE TERRE. It was a hot day. This old guy had the wisdom of the ages on his face.
4 .BROOKLYN BRIDGE BALLERINA. She wanted to stretch and rehearse in public. Shows the best performances are not on stage.
5. SIMILARITIES. They were relaxing on a beach in Le Lavandou, France. I could tell they’ve been married a long time.
