Naples United F C

Yesterday near the Naples Pier I saw a group of fit and handsome young men in black shirts
and two pretty young women.  So, I did what I do.  I took a photograph.



The Naples United F C is a semi-pro soccer team.  They were taking a break from 
tryouts and pre-season practice.  Their coach lined them up for a group photo.


Junior is one of the players.  His left arm is covered by beautiful tattoos.  They include 
a tribute to his deceased brother, the word "Faith" and a portrait of Christ.  


Leona on the left and Christina on the right are the team's models.
I don't know what soccer team models are supposed to do, but they are pretty and nice.


While I explained to Christina and Leona that I wander around with my camera and take pictures of people -- young and old -- places and things, Joan overheard me and volunteered to be the old person for me to photograph.  Joan is (undisclosed) years old and was an educator in Cleveland.

What a nice 2-generational photos! Leave it to an educator for a return to reality. . .there's more to life than yoing, agile bodies! I wouldn't mind returning to the good health of those beautiful young people, though!!

I don't know Jack, now people are asking you to take their picture 😀 although you would have been proud of me at the weekend asking the two performers if I could take a shot, they were more than happy ☺

There are many ways of having fun at the beach. You have found one few people would think about. Soccer is a sport of rising interest. Here is wishing these young men good luck with their athletic careers.

Looks like you hit the jackpot with a wonderful variety of models!

Jack, you're becoming the "walk the beach" photographer. You took some great photos there. Well done!

I should think you and your camera are becoming famous thereabouts. I'm waiting for the day you hold a photo exhibition at one of the art fairs.

Uh, team's models?? So now they don't even need to do gymnastics or cheer? Just walk around and look pretty? I guess that boils it down to its essence.
