First - the photograph: Such a juxtaposition of attitudes and feelings - it makes me want to study it or make it go away. I am not sure this man is unhappy, for this is a mere split second in the time of his life. BUT, it speaks volumes - he could be miserable. I will never know, hence the intrigue and splendor of this shot. Wonderful photojournalism Pete.
Second - I am not sure which I am coveting the most. The earrings, the hat, the boa? I think the boa...
Third - I forgot because I have had two glasses of wine and can't get past the boa. I want one!!
I love her too. She looks so dignified in all that red.
She so reminds me of an old army officer I once served under (Draw your own innuendo) and we have a great tradition in Britain where all our senior civil figures... Colonels and Judges etc.... have their kinks and vices.
