Photo Of The Week

Laurie says:

I’m going to be putting up a weekly photo from now on.  If I keep track (and I will) I shouldn’t be repeating myself for a very long time.  This one is of June Gladney at a masquerade with a painted dragon tattoo on her bare left side where she had her mastectomy.

    Wonderful photo!

    Was it taken in a mirror, or is her left side the painted one?

  2. Vicki says:

    Minor point, but: the photo’s right side, with the dragon, is Gladney’s left.

    Jill and Vicki,

    It is indeed her left side. My brain must have been in Kansas. I’m fixing it now.

    Jean C,

    It was a powerful moment. She was coming out of the masquerade presentation and being photographed by lots of people. I wanted to capture the sense of her poise and presence and (always) making it good art.
