SEPIA SATURDAY 412 : 31 MARCH 2018
PACKING : SUITCASES : DOGS : BEAUTY QUEENS
Our Sepia Saturday theme this week is a real beauty - incorporating travel, luggage, dogs and competitions. You could also include curtains, tables, and decapitated hands (if that is not a contradiction in terms).
My closest match this week features my sister-in-law Paula with her dog Pip. Pip wins prizes at dog shows. Paula was a winner in 2017 for her newsletter for the dog club. They’re quite a pair.
Here's a couple more photos of Anne Finlayson, beauty queen. She's wearing a fur stole in the photo below.
This may be my favorite photo of the PNE exhibition where Anne was named Miss PNE. They all have almost identical dresses from the back. All were the same dyeable pumps (I think). The photo, like of life at that time, was dominated by a man crossing the stage. A metaphor, of sorts.
It's been a sad week around here thinking about my good friend Valdyn Jonina Anderson who died of cancer after a long illness. I always think of her frozen in time at 17 or so as one of our high school cheerleaders. May she rest in peace.
And finally Pip, truly a beauty in her dog show categories. She doesn't need a fur stole or a crown to look regal and like a winner.
