In this book seven women tell their life stories. I asked each one of them to
begin with her childhood and to talk about whatever she thought was important in
her life - and I recorded what she said.
In summer and often in fall the coast begins its day fog-bound. On lucky days the sun breaks through gently an hour before the early games end. Beach goers spread their towels and raise their umbrellas in anticipation of the sun. As I photographed the players on the sand, flat light and crowded backgrounds were the greatest challenges. October produced more pictures than any other month.
