|Debbie by the window|
Ponerse en ella para ser vista. This expression from the Spanish is about a woman placing herself by a window so as to be seen.
I could not find any justification to post (so I have anyway) these photographs that I took so long ago but that to my eyes are exquisite even if I have to do what I call an unkind cut.
I may have taken these around 1977 and I used a couple of Pentaxes. One was loaded with Kodak B+W Infrared Film and the other with a very fine grained Kodak Special Order 410. The beauty of these images lies in the unsophistication and simplicity of a small hand-held camera and using only the light that was available at the time.
Now in 2015 if I had the opportunity of finding a Debbie N again to pose for me I wonder if I would not resort to the use of heavy lights and simply not get the results that I have here.
