With A Little Help From My FriendsThursday, May 27, 2010
There are several “cures” for melancholy. When Rosemary gets it I always suggest we go to buy her a pair of shoes or perhaps indulge in a big chocolate shake at the Red Onion. For me one of the best ameliorators of melancholy is to gaze on nice pictures of my friends. If they happen to be beautiful, and of the female kind, it is all the better. As I battle this week’s intense melancholy I decided to look for pictures that would make me smile. These do. They are of friends (and my friends, too) Yuliya and Jo-Ann. The former (the one with the mostly intense gaze in many of the pictures) has an arcane degree from Simon Fraser but is a professional dominatrix.
The other, Jo-Ann is a psychiatric nurse. For some years she was my once-a-month Thursday model. Now that my studio is gone the garden will have to do and I will attempt to take some domestic nudes. With Yuliya I plan to visit her at her studio apartment and see what kind of pictures I can take there. Both women are highly intelligent and the latter a bit on the talkative. They make good company and they cheer me up.
These pictures here represent my attempt to confuse the issue of who is exactly in charge. It was fun doing it.
