The same day that I shot the girl in white ('the girl with the converse sneakers' series - which has sequels coming up, by the way) I also saw this girl, in the red zebra print top. I was shooting from the water and I guess she was watching me because when she saw me, she smiled, and I asked if I could shoot her. She said yes, and at first, looked down - which is a nice, modest gesture to do but while we were talking and I was shooting, I realised she was wearing two different socks. She had been wearing boots, and probably didn't expect it would get so hot: it didn't seem a fashion statement, is all I'm saying.
I think when it comes to colour, most of us are either black/white/neutral people with red accents, or hot pink. I don't know at what point I decided I'm not a red person - my go to accent colour is a bright hot pink, or turquoise, or lime green - but I admire the courage of women who can wear red. I've forgotten her name - being in the water and all, I didn't write it down - but I do hope she finds my blog: she was just such a delightful girl, as you can see in her eyes and her smile.
