  1. Nice night picture. I was looking at how huge the one purse is. She could probably crawl into that thing and fit.

    Two friends out on a Friday night. I wonder where they were going?

  6. I don’t know where they’re going but the one looks like her bag is large enough to hold about a week’s provisions. Party!

    I can’t over those short, short skirts!! I think, though, about 40 years ago I was wearing them!! Remember the short gored skirts with madras cumberbunds?? I guess I’m telling my age! Ruth, you always know how to bring back good memories!

  8. Brr, please tell me this is not a recent photo. Hopefully this was taken in warmer weather.

    • Late September. You did say you would start every comment with brrrrr until Spring, though.

  10. Um, are these “ladies of the night”? If not, gals, please…. better choices next time, eh?

  11. Hi Ruth. I love love love this image. It tells a story yet allows the viewer to “fill in the blanks”. It is compelling, emotional, very well composed and lit. The black and white was the coup de grâce. Bravo!!
