This photograph is adorable with adorable children.. Coolong off or even being in the water has changed over the last 100 years. Kind of gets you floating back into an easier time. Poke me in 15 minutes, I am having fun here. If I was the photographer I would have my feet in the water also.

Thank you Larry for the Best answer. But it is the children that made an easy comment. The time era helps also. I wonder if they had to wait a half hour after eating to go into the water like I had to do when I was that age.

A wellspring of delightful personas and "telling",  fishing for smiles from the photographer .. Beautiful .. 

P.S. It is interesting that the photo has obvious adjustments made to it. The image components beneath the dress lines of the two figures on the right are artificial and redundant "clone" copies. They appear to be shoes above the water and are joined at the water with an unnatural and repeated details within the water. Fortunately the mysterious adjustments do not take away from the photo's real magnificence.
