Nurse Temptress


As I walked down the street I noticed a girl who was standing with a group of other people. I stopped and said hello. It turned out she was with her sister and nephew and their neighbour. The neighbour wondered if what I was carrying was a telescope. I told him that it was a tripod for my camera, and I use it to ensure the pictures come out nice and sharp. I extended the legs of the tripod and screwed the camera on the plate to demonstrate. Then I asked the girl if I could take her picture and she agreed. We had to cross the street and walk half a block to find some shade. She told me her name was Temptress and that she was a nurse at the local hospital.

  1. Her Anne Hathaway like 'larger than life' facial features and intense stare alone are tempting enough. Sporting Jesus between her breasts and casing herself in an uber-tight house dress however, insures that this temptress has transcended her moniker.

  2. I'll bet this nurse's patients are having dreams about her.

    Just checked out the full gallery of Newburgh photographs, and it's work that's not only masterful aesthetically, but has an actual social purpose unlike much of what is going on now. I hope the people in these photos have a chance to see what you've been doing in working together with them, and hope there is a book collection at some point if that's a possibility. Not that there's anything wrong with the internet, mind you!

  3. Thank you very much for your comments and encouragement. I am actually making a dummy for a book of the Newburgh photographs at this moment.
