All good things must come to an end.... This magnificent
portrait of Lady Karen in cat eye glasses by Zenni and
big green hat concludes her photo shoot.
I wish to thank you, Karen, for your highly individual,
natural yet superb way of posing in no less than 130
glasses and three pince-nez. I am always looking for
models who can really add something to the contents
of my weblogs and you succeeded in every way.
Many of your portraits have a touch of melancholy
but the toungue in cheek aspect is never far away.
A touch of irony can be seen in many portraits and this
may reflect the unusual character of this specialist type
of portrait photography. I also wish to thank you for
your pleasant company during this extended photo shoot
which lasted four hours.
You were quite efficient when it came to making a choice
from the new frames collection for your own glasses, I was
only joking in the presentation of the final portraits :).
Hat off for this splendid lady behind crystal veil!
Nylor was a major player in the eyeware industry
in the 1950's and early 1960's. During the catwalk
at the opening of my exhibition one of my models
(Mieke) received much praise for her looks in a
splendid 1962 half rim pair by Nylor. These portraits
of Karen are in the same league.
