This photograph of guests at a beachside trailer park in Florida conjures an oddball charm. A woman wearing a pointed hat and huge sunglasses rests her cheek on her fist, while her companion naps under his cap. Why have they set up their chairs next to their hulking car instead of near the shoreline? Or are the waves just out of frame?
