Laundry Lass...

There's a tiny laundromat nearby that I've always wanted to use as a backdrop for photos. I'm often amused by the unlikely combinations found in fashion magazines...carefully coiffed models seemingly stranded in a small town, waiting for their car to be fixed... in each shot they have a new designer outfit and hair style. Instead of absurd wardrobe changes, I gave absurd direction: "You're Canadian"  "You are reading the Economist and wondering if your shoes are tied"  "You're perfectly comfortable in this cart"  We had a grand time.

Wowzer! What a great shoot in the laundromat! Liz--you really made this come alive. You put some nice humor in this situation. Well done!

Hi Liz! Love this shoot and your "directions" made me laugh. :)
