There is just something about these two photographs, so romantic and mysterious, that I really love. I want to know what their faces look like, what their stories are, what they're doing and thinking and feeling. Why did they turn their back to the camera? Ok, I think I know, to show off the pretty hair and pretty backs of the dresses! But aside from that, these images evoke emotion, and I dig that.
The girl in white reminds me of Anne of Green Gables, probably because I was supposed to be paying my first (and long dreamed-of) visit to Prince Edward Island this week, and obviously I'm not. The ivory lace and swept-up hair make me think this is just how Anne must have looked in the garden, turned away from Gilbert. I'm pretty sure this glimpse of a soft cheek and peeking eyelashes is what drove him to propose. ;)
And the girl in navy and pink? 
What do you think? What's her story?

  1. Not sure why but she seems very Spanish to me. I think she is upset because she's in love with a matador and he refuses to give up bullfighting even though it's dangerous. She begged him to stop before he is killed but he wouldn't listen and now she is turned away because she can't bear to watch what happens. How's that for dramatic? ;-
