PLEASE NOTE: This post and the above photo is a prompt choice from Kruti Mehta’s new challenge called Creative Circle. The challenge was to choose a prompt OR photo from Kruti’s list, and write a post about it. This photo of the woman at the mirror intrigued me, and I chose it to post about. This could have been a photo of me, back in the day. Well, except for a couple of details 🙂 I was younger than she, and not any where near as sophisticated …although the hair is the same, and the face (if she was wearing glasses she would look a lot like I did back then, in about 1954.
Now let me say this…after posting this (out of the blue) with no explanation at first, I had second thoughts about it. So…I deleted the post. But then, as I was looking through some photo albums, searching for a specific photo, I was struck again by the resemblance. So I re-posted it.
Here is a selfie of me…in 2015. Looking instead of a mirror, into a camera lens, reflected in a glass door. Sometimes when I look in the mirror my mind’s eye reminds me of the ME in the red gown. Actually I never wore a dress like this, and formals that I did wear were more of the prom-dress or bridesmaid-dress variety with lots of poof and net and tulle…not sophisticated and sleek like the red dress.
