|Rosemary & Niña - 5 December 2020 - 3 days before she died
In my life I had my mother, grandmother, girlfriends, girl cousins & aunts, two daughters, two granddaughters, friends that were girls or women and I have photographed many women in my career as a portrait photographer. Sometimes, as all we men know, they can be an enigma.
|Niña on yours truly 5 December 2023
My Rosemary was not quite one. I first saw her sometime in mid-December 1967 and by 8 of February 1968 we were married.
An important female in my life is my feline Niña. Rosemary and I adopted her and her brother Niño at the SPCA five years ago. Niño immediately adapted but not Niña. When people would come for a visit she would hide in a closet. From the beginning she adored Rosemary and avoided me. I would say that only last year did she come around. Now she does not hide and allows perfect strangers to pet her.
Now in the last three months she is inseparable from me. When I am on the bed she gets on top of me and in my face. The happy result is that I tend to stay and do nothing for much of the day.
So Rosemary was a quick woo. Niña played hard to get.
That’s women. They are enigmas.
