Pooling Around

Shot with a film camera, this photograph by Thomas Sterr captures a day at the pool for hotel guests in Acapulco, Mexico. The popular resort city, whose name means “place of dense reeds” in the Aztec Nahuatl language, bends invitingly around the Acapulco Bay on Mexico’s Pacific coast.
