Paradise Postcards from the Edge

Ria Michelle (USA) – Jumeirah Dhevanafushi

There might not be a “Maldives Fanatic Day”, but there is a “National Swimming Pool Day”. And if there is one posing spot that the Maldives fashionistas are fanatical about it is the pool. You can be in the pool or beside the pool. Lounging, standing or floating. But the quintessential pose on every photographer’s check list is the “Pool Edge Recline”. The classic rendition includes arched back, tilted head, raised knee nearest the camera and pointed toes. But as the diverse Maldives display, there remain countless variations. And here are more than a few (dozen) examples…
