Wetlook-Online
Well, Laszlo, although I've been visiting beaches for the specific purpose of seeing (and participating in) wetlook since 1970, I only started taking pictures in 2014.    Prior to that a camera was very obviously a camera, and people took pictures very sparingly, and usually carefully posed, so anybody taking pictures on a beach was very obvious.    I have the utmost respect for MK and Leonmoomin and others who dared to take pics in those days.

 

It was the widespread introduction of the cameraphone which made my type of beach photography possible.    Now everybody has a smartphone and uses it constantly for all sorts of purposes, including frequently taking pics, so I am only doing the same as everybody else (and indeed I know I feature on many other people's beach pics).    Well, that's true on southern English beaches, but in less affluent places such as Blackpool and Scarborough (you can tell your friend that Scarborough featured again on TV last night, Laszlo, as the "low wage capital of Britain") I still feel much more conspicuous because many fewer people have cameraphones.     

 

I also take other precautions, though.    People are remarkably good at telling when you are looking AT them, so immediately before and after taking my pic I often focus my eyes on something BEHIND them - a bit of coastline, the pier, a boat, or if there is none of these just a more distant person in the water - which is remarkably effective at convincing the people in the foreground that I am not interested in them.    Either that or I busy myself fiddling with my phone - I check my emails, the weather forecast, the tide times, the times of trains, Tripadvisor recommendations for nearby restaurants, and anything else I can think of, dozens of times a day, so that I can always have one of these open and can flip back to it immediately if I feel the need to look like I'm not taking pictures at all (though in practice have never been challenged while doing so).     And I keep my eyes open for possible trouble and move away before it can develop.   For example, in this pic https://www.flickr.com/photos/105715846@N06/43942689182/in/dateposted-public/ you can see a guy, almost submerged, to the left (from our perspective) of the wet clothed woman, apparently giving me a hard stare; now I have no idea whether it was me he was looking at, and whether he really was angry - perhaps he always looks like that - but I moved away, head buried in my phone but as fast as I felt looked natural, just in case.

 

But I have had 'trouble' a few times.    In Britain the allegation is always "taking pictures of children" - there is a substantial sector of British people who are seemingly convinced that there are paedophiles lurking round every street corner, despite all the evidence that actually such paedophiles as exist are mainly to be found in churches, schools, youth activities and their own homes.     

 

I have previously mentioned the time that I was approached by a policeman whilst standing on the Prom waiting for the time to leave for my train home, who said there had been complaints that I had been taking pictures of children; when shown the pictures he said "I see nothing here to cause me concern" and even took me at speed in his Panda to the next station down the line to head off the train which I was otherwise about to miss because of his interviewing me.    That was in 2014, before I had learned the tricks mentioned above.

 

Last year, when I waded back to the beach after taking this pic https://www.flickr.com/photos/105715846@N06/35748177950/in/dateposted-public/ , two women - as far as I could see unconnected to the woman in the photo - asked me what I was taking photos of; I replied "Just Arran [the island offshore] and the coast generally"; she said "I hope you're not taking pictures of children"; I replied that I was wading into the sea to try to avoid them as far as possible, and that seemed to satisfy them.     But I then felt obliged to wander around taking other 'tourist' pics in case of any follow up, and I also felt unable to take any later pics of the woman in this pic, https://www.flickr.com/photos/105715846@N06/36006182331/in/dateposted-public/ who was at the same bit of beach and subsequently waded in up to her chest, pink jacket and all.

 

These were both fairly straightforward.     The two examples in 2016 were both more off-the-wall.     In the first case it was the child himself who accused me.    I mentioned above that I often focus my eyes on a distant person while taking a pic of somebody nearer.    I had taken two pics of a group of women in wet clothes, when I was approached by a small Indian boy of perhaps 7 or 8 years old.    He said "you take my picture".    At first I thought that he wanted me to take his picture, and I refused and walked away.    But he followed me saying "Take my picture - delete" then "Illegal to take pictures of children" and it dawned on me that he must have been the distant figure I had focused my eyes on, and he thought he actually was my target.    So I showed him the photos, in which he wasn't discernible at all on the small screen, and he looked confused and went away.     Actually you can make him out on the large screen, and I thought long and hard about whether to post the pics given his strong objection, but eventually decided that he was so insignificant that nobody would notice him.    Can you spot the relevant pics? (hint, I posted them in reverse order by mistake).    Was I wrong to post them?

 

And the final example was in many ways the most serious.    I was sitting on the steeply-sloping beach at Southend waiting for a woman who was submerged in all her clothes a few yards along the beach to come out for me to take a pic.    Eventually she did, and at what I judged was just the right moment I took a quick pic - only for a small child (who had not previously been visible to me) to wander right in front of me at that precise moment.    I looked at the picture and, yes, he had completely blocked the view of the wet woman.   But then I noticed that the woman had stopped, still knee-deep, so I took another pic - and blow me if the same child didn't wander back again at precisely the wrong moment.    The woman was still standing up in the water, so I looked up to where the child had headed to check he wasn't about to spoil my third attempt - and was confronted with a whole family of angry faces staring at me.    Oh shit, they think I am deliberately photographing their child!     I got up to go, and they got up too - this was serious, because, lets face it, I HAD twice photographed their child, even though I certainly hadn't wanted to, and it was going to be difficult to explain away.    So I set off at a very fast walk, across the road and up the hill behind towards the main street.    

 

Now I may be over 60, but I can still go up hills faster than most people of 40; I risked a glance back at the top and saw that the two teenagers of the family were still behind me but the adults were nowhere to be seen.    So I carried on along the High Street and into the "Last Post" pub, where I knew kids couldn't legally follow me - and which I also knew I could go right through and out the other end, bringing me out right at the entrance to Central station.    Where I quickly bought a ticket and boarded a train for Chalkwell station two stops along the line, which is next to another beach.    And needless to say I deleted the pics as soon as I sat down in the train.    But that was the end of beach photography for that day - my nerves couldn't stand it!   

 

So there you are, the thrills and spills of wetlook photography.....

Dear Members of the Forum,

In his message no. 75020.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.1 MK wrote that on English beaches he had taken pictures with his old Polaroid camera. It has conjured up memories for me.

In 1991 I spent two days in Budapest, and both times went to a nice lake in the City Park, where a group of young people were cavorting in the water, the girls fully clothed. It goes without saying that I also joined them, in my street clothes. The second day I even had a conversation with a girl who dived in headlong, wearing a long skirt with underskirts beneath.

She told me that once a foreign tourist had taken pictures of her when she was in the water, and later even sent her copies. She was obviously proud of it.

The other memory is not so nice. I took a picture of girl in wet clothes at a lake, where swimming was not allowed. She thought that I was from the police, and got very angry. I was ashamed, and cursed myself.

Mr. Jolly Wet, if you read this post, I have a question to you. I know that you like taking pictures of wet ladies on British beaches. Have you ever got into inconvenient situations?

Best regards,

László
