A happy International Women's Day... with a nod to this great lady. So many photos were taken of her and Rudy that day but this is my favorite. She seems to be accommodating it all and looking forward to being away from the public eye. There is something resolved in her expression. A photograph taken by her love, Rudy.
I give my same speech every year on this day. Why a "day"? Are all the rest of the days of the year, assumed then to be "men's days"? I will not apologize for my feminist "tendencies". But a day of recognition is better than none. We'll take it. I did the color treatment on this image. I know purists think it should not be done but I think it brings life to the moment.
