Mad Dogs and Englishmen.... by julzmaioro

Mad Dogs and Englishmen....

While walking the 'Prominade' I noticed this chap sitting on his own right in the middle of the beach, soaking up the sun.. We went back after lunch and he was still there, so at least 3 hours he was sitting out in the 'Mid day' sun .. so I think he would of been well baked ..
Pleased how the paddle boarders spread out across the frame of the image...
Devonports Northhead is in the background..
great image
hope he used sunscreen lol

Fabulous shot and scene, at least he did not turn red as a lobster ;-)

Crazy fellow, but adds to a great image of NZ summer.

Quite the story going on here, great image!

But he could leave his hat on.... (and his cellphone) My skin cringes at the sight of this sunbathing in our fierce NZ sun. I just love those paddleboarders though. Several great stories here.

He must be mad. I never understand why people sit on a beach. I am English and a bit of a mad dog, but not daft enough to sit on a beach all day.

I don't get it!! Never have been one for sitting in the sun like that except, maybe in winter behind glass. What a flotilla of paddle-boarders!!

@golftragic I think it was a Paddle Board school... they seemed very tentative.. just beginners... but pleased they lined themselves up so nicely..

Hope he had sunscreen on.

What this shot screams out to me is, Be careful what you do in public. Poor fella was just chilling. He should have put his bags behind his chair in the shade though!

He adds a lot to your photo, though. Ha. Love that lineup of paddle boarders!
February 14th, 2019  
At least he covered his head !!

Love the color of the water and the paddle boarders!

I imagine he is quite crusty - love the paddle boarders too

Ahh, but he has the hat! Lovely capture!

@ellida Yes I was pleased he had a hat .. but I think he needs a wider brim...

@julzmaioro Oh yes, very obliging of them wasn't it?
