Fashion Freedom

Today when I went to the Art Gallery, all sorts of little cartoon-like images & text were drawn in chalk across its sandstone facade. I'm sure it's a Terribly Subversive Act done in honour of the Sydney Bienalle (I can't even spell it) Anyway, I quite liked it, & particularly liked the words 'Fashion Freedom' that was right next to the front entrance.
Whilst viewing the wonderful early twentieth century portraits by photographer, Harold Cazneaux, I sneakily took a photo (when guard wasn't looking) of Harold's great portrait of a lady called Doris, taken in the twenties, maybe v. early thirties. I just loved her languid profile & that wonderful bun right at the nape of her neck.  I was trying to channel some of Doris' Majesty in my own Wardrobe photo, but  I look more like an advertisement for Weight Loss. Not sure if I'm the Before or After shot, though.


see you there! said...

Love the subversive chalk artwork!
