Going through the images of this particular woman - not an easy task. One day I am going to tell the story, but the wound is still a bit fresh.

When you let people into your life, you always run a certain risk - especially with new friends. They might clobber you when you least expect it. You always say "oops, why didn't I see that coming?" But none of us are immune to getting charmed or played. The only true test of friendship, is time.

Right you are. I just went through something I could reference as you have, only a few months ago.
The investments we make in others can be unfortunate in the end, but to heal, we must make investments in ourselves.

Just keep working at what you love to do.

Excellent shot!,

and in my experience it is sometimes harder to lose a friend than to lose family, but that is all circumstantial

I feel like you mentioned a falling out with a model before, though I assume that was a different one. Is it common for photographers to be so emotionally involved with their models? I would think a little professional detachment would be called for, but then again, they are naked. There's some intimacy there whether you like it or not. PS, really love your work.

Not generally... I mean, hundreds of models are one and done and out the door and you never even remember shooting with them! But when you work with someone over the course of years... of course a relationship develops. You would not work with someone that often if you did not become friends.

So true. This happened to me last time. It's amazing how wrong one can be about a person. Beautiful piece though.

Great shot! Having had some similar things happen before, I do wonder about the story too.
Did she start out as a model or was this someone you started out with on a personal note? I know at times I am hesitant to speak of the occasional model that I had where we crossed the 'line'.... It hasn't happened often but it has happened.

It's funny to see how people read into things.

When I allude to models/subjects it is always in the context of our working relationship/friendship. My only juicy romantic entanglement has a wedding ring on her finger that I placed there 18 years ago. ;)

Well, I was playing the odds with what I had to work with. It's good that you have avoided such entanglements as I have alluded to and are content on that front. Indeed there are non romantic elements in which a subject can enter our lives.

Though I always hate to sound at all patronizing or anything of the sort, I've had experiences which match your description uncannily well, photos and all. Don't give up on your self or the things for which you have the greatest passion. This life is immense, and you are well with it.

There is no giving up. ;)

With people there is always frustration though. I did not tell the story, so it could be anything if you think about it. The model could have kicked my dog! That would not make me give up on photography! :lmao:

But thank you for the kind sentiment anyway. I hear what you are saying. :)
