Down In The Valley

Mae in the pool blindfolded at night, mouth full of whole milk, counting four-one-thousand five-one-thousand so she's sure I'm ready to take the picture. I already have her lounging on a chair with an actual cigarette, standing in the doorway with a tumbler full of whiskey, in the kitchen laughing and absent-mindedly tugging up her bandeau top. She doesn't mind the camera, doesn't mind my eyes following her around as afternoon rolls into evening and slides into night.

I don't know if there will be more pictures later, but there is a twinkle in her eye hidden behind that blindfold.

  1. Love this--somehow reading your offering I could vision her in water, opening her mouth to allow the milk to flow into the water. Not sure it's what you wanted but you painted a different picture for me.

  2. I love the backstory you gave to this picture. It's as fun and refreshing as Mae's charades.
