Charis, Lake Ediza, California, 1937 by Edward Weston
" Shahiriz ! Killer of the giant prehistoric Lizard!" I grinned at my companion.
Emily was beat and in no mood for my games. She cocked her head,
"You drag me all the way out here, into the middle of nowhere- supposedly
to pose for a painting in this ghastly weather-" She threw an arm out to indicate
the wasteland around us.
"I know I am sorry -" I squinted into the sun and then back at her as she
slid down to sit by the rock face. " Let me rest for a moment."
I passed her the water canteen." How about we change plans ?
I photograph you for a while and then we will return home."
And that was how I ended up with 25 black and white photographs of my
good friend and model Emily Troop.
