Lady in the Water: 1947


I love this image… it is so haunting – and beautiful at the same time. Just perfectly composed and as if she is very happy with the circumstance. And really wonderful way to show off clothes. I subscribe to a strange site (The 100 year old photo blog) that gives you new ‘old’ photographs every day…people then are encouraged to talk about what they mean – or the contetxt in which they were shot. This one is at A woman floating in the water at Weeki Wachee Spring, Florida. The image by fashion photographer Toni Frissell was published in Harper’s Bazaar in December 1947
