Can't say I'm loving the light in these pictures, but the clothes do show up well. And I think there's a story here . . . this bombshell pair is out for a stroll on a late-summer afternoon in Hong Kong, circa 1937, when a street photographer offers to take their picture for a souvenir . . .
What they looked like:
What the camera saw:
By the way, the fabulously wacko kanzashi in Neechan's hair came from Modern Maiko (Bliss on DoA). Go buy from her--she's a sweetie, and she makes cool stuffs!
This is actually my favorite picture of the set, but Neechan's knee is dislocated, !@#*$%. Plz to be ignoring the visible elasticationage. (Fan from Mimiwoo--one of those things I had forgotten I bought. Shame.)
Now I have to run to the mall (not-so-affectionately referred to by my students as The Small) for bed pillows, since I refuse to sleep on the lumpy ones I have even one more night.
Hmmm--I'm thinking there's definitely one, maybe two, more post/s to come . . . though I have to drive down to the hometown for a funeral tomorrow (old family friend), and time is slipping away. *sigh* for the shortness of even long weekends.
