The Idea of Truth 2

‘The snapshot played, I’m sure, a hither to unrecognised role in the creation of seaside mythology.  When the sun shone – as of course it always did in our childhood memories of hot sand, warm seas, sunburn, lotion, and ice cream – it unleashed the combined recording power of millions of Kodaks.  But when clouds gathered, when a sharp wind whipped up the waves and turned the sea gray, the shutters were mostly silent; very few people take shapshots in the Rain.’  Say ‘Cheese’!  The Snapshot as Art and Social History, Graham King, Collins 1986
