This photo of three beautiful women in bikinis, with potato chips, at Jones Beach, by the gifted photographer Peter Dutton, brings to mind the famous oil painting titled ‘Potato Eaters’ by Vincent van Gogh.

The photo shows a bikini clad model posing at the 2010 Run to the Sun Fashion Show at Anchorage, Alaska, in April 2010. It is a business-cum- fashion show for woman's clothing and also tanning. This seems to be one of the best shots by this gifted photographer, though, as he mentioned in the footnotes below this photo at his Flickr.com web-page that the lighting at the Sullivan Arena where the show was held was ‘absolutely horrible - like something out of a bomb shelter’. I hope you like it. If so, click on the photo or the link above and view more of his photos.
