"X" marks the spot

Here is a photo of a couple carrying out a common beach ritual, applying sun screen. What struck me a curious, however, is the pattern that he applied. Why would he start with applying sun screen in an "X" pattern? If he leaves the sun screen in that pattern, she will have a strange looking back.

I will show you how this situation was resolved. Tomorrow, of course.

We have photos of the Nazca lines in Peru on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week. If you have not been there, you owe yourself a look at one of the most amazing sights on earth and a remarkable and puzzling achievement of man centuries ago.

Interesting "X" pattern. I think they have instant tanning solution that he probably can apply.

With that X on her back there is something 1950ish about this photo!

Sharon is right, it does look a bit old style. It also looks like he could have used some sun screen about an hour before.

Looks like he waited too late for sunscreen and is going to be in a little pain later on! I sure wish I hadn't done so much of this sunbathing when I was younger. Maybe I wouldn't have to spend so much time at the dermatologist's office now!
