If she's a security woman, surely she won't let her in with hair like that!
What, you don't think Dick Avedon was blessed with his mop?
This is real
street as real as it can get; shot in the street! Excuses everything.
There are two markets in Pollensa on Sundays: the fruit and vegetables one where I used to find myself every Sunday morning at about half-past-eight, when my wife would buy the week's supplies and I'd fulfil my rôle as mule. I stopped going when she died.
There's a second market at the same time, in another square, which does clothes and junk. It used to be held on top of a huge underground car park that was built some time ago, but the town hall has now stopped that area from being used due to damage from the stalls (maybe the roof was built too weak?), and it's now held along the surrounding streets, causing chaos. It also ruined my shooting idea, because there's no longer the possibility of walking behind one row of stalls intent on a target the other side of said row; to walk behnd a stall now would entail being inside somebody's house. Best-laid plans etc.
I'm toying with the idea of going out to another, local market, today in the Port; it depends on how long it takes me to deal with e-mails etc. and by then, I may have lost interest. C'est a vie.
Last night I got the news that my best client ever, the Hewden/Stuart Group, has folded. I last worked for them when I made their '85 calendar: it was a huge job, with forty-two different sets of artwork, one for each member company within the group. Now it doesn't exist. From the largest civil engineering supplier/hirer of industrial plant to zero. I think a lot must have hinged on the top guns: the few I knew were all a little older than I, and some were original owners of the companies that formed the group. I guess that with retirements etc. the chains of influence and friendships that keep life moving just drop away...
On the bright side: it would have been a disaster to have been responsible for paying the bills for such a production had the client failed during my tenure! In those days, few even thought about insurance - you took big companies on trust. The banking crisis changed that for ever.
