The lovely Jean Dawson in a contemplative mood.
Just one of the surprises waiting on my Wanders down my alley-way.
Still north of Toronto, she had never posed before for this kind of photography. She had a natural way of moving and thinking. Shortly after I ran head on with a pile of problems, most of my own making, we never got the chance to work together again. Huge loss.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
More from the Arroyo series, the idea was to shoot my Watermelon Girl piece. But I had the girl, a beautiful day, and there was some nakedness happening. This girl was 19 at the time, and having a real hard time figuring life. Now as then, she is a sweet woman, and life seems to be settling down now. Anyway, high speed film, and cross-processed…, I love how the background turned out, and of course the model.
