for Tiger Tiger




These are out of order. I found the black and white, which is corrected to erase cracks and lines in the original photograph, in the Library of Congress online files. I was taken with the beauty of this woman's expression and bone structure. The bottom picture was the second adaptation (the first is just colorized and not shown.) The top photo was the result of imagining her as African...and I used photos of silk batik and african masks in the composite. The final picture in the series is shown at the top of an earlier blog ("Bush and other natural disasters)

Her name is missing.
We don't know her history.
But her beauty lives...

Thanks to you, Linda. She has a lovely face and I love the way you used it to expand out perspectives.
