Things that make you go 'hmmm'
(circa 1937)
or jump in the water is fine.


I found this odd series of photos in an old LIFE Magazine. According to the photographer, Truman Vencill, this dive is called "Ride of Paul Revere". The divers are Bill Lewin and Dutch Smith. I can only imagine why this caught Truman's eye... hmmm. Ride 'em Cowboy!

It is a very suggestive dive, and title, but aside from that, it is very cool. Comparing the left and the right series really shows how impressive the dive can look--personally, I like the left.
