IMA Model



It hasn't yet been two weeks 
since the Indianapolis Museum of Art welcomed
Roy Lichtenstein's sculpture, Five Brushstrokes 
to the Sculpture Garden on the east lawn.
As I was leaving, I saw that one of the pieces
was already being used as the backdrop
for a fashion photo session. 


Families were all about, many with small children 
in strollers, happily exploring the grounds, 
and taking the time to lounge under 
the tree-lined promenade.
On one of the park benches, I saw 
the model's accouterments, 
shopping bags full of fashionable clothing
and her own, neatly folded and piled.


The nice young woman taking the pictures 
told me her name was Evelyn Binkley, 
while the pretty model's name 
was Ciera. I doubt I've spelled their
names correctly because I didn't
write either down until after 
I left the Museum grounds. My bad.

Shot with a point-and-shoot camera?

Mine point and shoot. The photographer, no.

The model seems more lively than you typically see with models.

Hi, William. I guess that's because our models eat, so they have more energy. You can tell at first glance she's not just a painted up board.

Well, her thigh is painted up, it look like varicosities ;-)
