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.

  3. Laurie Says:

    Jill and Vicki,

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

    WOW!!!! That is a very powerful picture. Thank you for posting it.

    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.
