One for Lin

August 12th, 2009

D20 1047 One for Lin Lin said in a comment a while back that I should do more portraits. Well, I do shoot portraits regularly, but tend not to post them here. So here’s a little something from my shoot with Theda. I’ve been playing around with some head scarves. I’m interested in what is hidden and what is revealed. I found the transformation in Theda’s look when she put the head scarf on to be pretty interesting. I don’t think I’d recognize her if I hadn’t been there when she put on the scarf. And, somehow, it seems to me that she is more there…maybe with just a little bit of that illusive soul showing.

So, this is, at least to me, just a bit more serious a photo than the “Death” series. You did understand those were a joke, didn’t you? I love Theda’s sense of humor. It’s dark and dry and delicious.

Which reminds me:

Sisyphus walks in to a bar and says to the bartender, “Give me a Rolling Rock.”

Hope you like this portrait, Lin. I’ll try to post that kind of work a little more often.

Changing subject, since I complained here about the Delta terminal at JFK, I should now tell you that they responded to my complaint with an apology and a small travel voucher for a future flight. At least they paid a little attention. Now if they would just do something about that disaster of a terminal. I still won’t fly Delta to JFK again until I know they have.

And while I’m talking about things not working, blogger wasn’t working most of today…or at least it wouldn’t let me get to this blog for most of the day when I was trying to make this post. I have no idea what the problem was, but it seems to be gone now.
