Vamos a La Playa

Posted on: August 7th, 2012 by Mr Roaming 13 Comments

From beaches in Brazil to Portugal, a Los Angeles-based photographer Gray Malin has shot a series of stunning beach scenes titled A la plage from a doorless helicopter. The photos we’ve chosen — which are only a small sampling of the collection — capture sun, sand, surf, umbrella, water. Can you guess which beach is which just by looking at the pictures?

    If you didn’t provide any assistance Mr Roaming, the only one I could guess is of course Copacabana and Santa Monica. I AM SO READY FOR THE BEACHHHHHHHHH!

    I love these pictures! What an excellent post now that it is hot all over! Happy summer!!! And I couldn’t possibly identify these beaches. They all look amazing though.

    Vamos, vamos!!! Thankfully you gave the names of the beaches. But the Brazilian one is beautiful. I also like Coogee in Australia (I don’t want to seem smart – I looked it up to see where it is).

    What a brilliant idea for a collection of images. And so timely. Only if we could have the luxury of sun. Here in England we are hoping for some sun so that the Olympics can go on . . . .

    I am so ready for the beach – too bad it’s many many kilometers away . . .

    I love any beach – but these images make these beaches even more enticing. Great idea Mr R.

    These are some great pictures. But if I had to guess, most are not Mediterranean other than the St. Tropez. The others are from oceans.

    La plage! St. Tropez est magnifique. Mais toutes les autres aussi. Merci monsieur.

    I wonder how the photographer picked these beaches. Despite the omission of some very famous others, these are also beautiful.
