In the beginning, there was a woman in black…..

What goes around, comes around…. Many years ago, one of my earliest images from my travels was a woman dressed in black, in Venice:

…then I saw her in different guise, tall and elegant, in Vienna, probably a week later:

….some months later, I caught up with her in Tarascon, Provence, early in the morning:

Tarascon, 7 am, off to the bakers

and yesterday, after well over 30 years, she turned up in Guildford. She always wears a skirt:

Shame she didn’t turn up in the deserted streets of Spinalonga, or Craco Vecchia….that would have been atmospheric,,,,

  12. I love these many manifestations of the woman in black. And such backgrounds she strides against. An inspire dpost!

    • Sue

      Yes, she has chosen some great backgrounds over the last 30 plus years! And last evening I finally found her striding over the Ponte Vecchia, an image that I thought (to my horror ) that I had lost ….. So there might be another post as I think I have her on a donkey in Crete or Kos

  13. Brilliant idea Sue and I’m impressed that you can find things in your collection.

    • Sue

      I don’t keyword as much as I should, but some years ago I created Projects, each drilling down to folders and albums. So I have UK, ROW, Ruins, Portraits readily accessible…..so I looked for my woman in black in ROW, went for Italy….but could I find her! Not initially!! Got to get those keywords done….
