High on KneesSaturday, July 22, 2017
Del lat. tardío rotella 'ruedecita', dim. de rota 'rueda'.
Real Academia Española
The knee has been in my thoughts of late as my Rosemary had her left knee replaced four weeks ago. I am now her nurse and she is healing just fine. We go for short walks every day.
According to my Spanish dictionary the word for knee in Spanish comes from the late Latin from the word rotella or little wheel.
When I photograph people I have my own person rule on cropping. I crop above the knee halfway on the thigh. If not I go all the way to the foot and I never crop out the foot and only include the ankle.
Here are some knee shots of my friend Kimberly Klass who died some years ago. She was a wonderful subject and I must state here that while she was very beautiful and voluptuous she had most handsome knees.
