Windy Vintage Shot

13vint3181

This is one of those photographs that can make me smile and lift the darkest mood, at least when it’s not cracking me up out loud as I recount the circumstances under which it was taken. The year was 1994. The setting was a cruise ship somewhere south of Florida. And the night was… windy. Very windy. Like, no-other-fools-were-on-deck-windy. And Suzie and I were trying to pose and keep our clothes on while our Moms snapped pictures. I think by the time this one was taken we were both laughing so hard and fighting against the wind so badly that it’s a miracle we were even upright. Suzie is clearly terrified that her peasant dress is going to fly away and my two-sizes-too-large gauze shirt from International Male is hanging on by a button and a prayer. And yet it remains one of my favorite photos ever taken.
