  2. Wonderful photos. I especially like the one of the photographer taking the picture of Steichen and his wife - a photograph of a photographer taking a photo of a photographer!

  3. Through your posts, I understand photography runs in your family, Muffy - is that your father? Thank you for the link to the Smithsonian article. It was informative and so I sent it on to my fashion stylist daughter whose job it is to work hand-in-hand with photographers.

  4. I wish you could still buy pants like those worn in the last image.

    1. The cut looks very much like the cut still available from J. Press. Hope that helps, Anon!

    2. Mr. Rowe, would you guess a J. Press regular or long rise? I've been afraid to buy pants from J. Press because I live too far away to visit a store and internet ordering pants at that price scares me. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

    3. The regular rise should be fine. My suggestion would be for you to order a size up, then have the waist taken in if necessary. That's how that shape is attained. I'd also suggest you don't order from the Internet. Call one of the stores and speak to a salesperson and tell them your situation and ask them to personally handle it for you. They're happy for the sale, and there's less chance of mistakes. The New Haven store has always bee particularly cooperative. Good luck!

  5. In the second photo, the dog on the table appears to have no front legs. Is that correct? If it is, how lovely to have such compassion for it.

    1. If you Google Joanna Steichen and click on her images, you will see a photograph of her with her husband walking a dog with one leg missing. (Her story is quite fascinating, as well.)

  6. I was somewhat taken with the picture of Joanna Steichen. That profile...that hairstyle. She was a lovely lady in the other photographs of her that I have found but the few with that hairstyle confirm why I was struck by this one. As usual, thanks.
