The public pool

"People swim and wade in the pool at the Arena Club in Bel Air, Md., on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, 2011."

There is something about summer and public swim pools that screams Americana to me.

The way everyone crams into the pool, the way the air is just as moist and humid as the water in the pool itself, mother's continually yelling at their children, the sound of life guard's whistles blowing, and the way the scent of really bad cardboard brand pizza lingers in the air.

I haven't been to a public pool in years, so I was simply smiling the entire time. In my humble opinion, there is nothing better than a nice swim, and I am glad I grew up in the water.

I'll probably attempt to shoot this photo as summer goes on, but I liked it enough to share the first capture.
