Daily Dozen – Women in New York at Night

I had big plans for today’s Daily Dozen. It was going to be Hollywood focused and I was sure it would be a big hit. It’s not like I’m a paparazzi or something with shots of stars and celebrities but going through my photos I have directors, composers and reporters who cover Hollywood. I know that doesn’t really get people’s blood flowing though now does it. I also realized that many of those photographs were never tagged – or even uploaded to Flickr – and that they go back some five years. Too hard a task for a busy person like me!

So instead I’ve taken the easy route. Thursday’s set of men on the street of New York at night + Friday’s set of women in Kendall Square = today’s collection of women on the streets of New York at night. I *do* have some other sets in mind for this week, one or two that I’m really looking forward to. As always though, if you have an idea for a set let me know, I’m all ears . . .

Daily Dozen – Women with Framed Faces

I’ve been looking at hair a lot lately. Particularly women’s hair. It strikes me that there are essentially three relationships between a woman’s hair and her face. The first is “ignore my hair” – this is the look where the hair is pulled back and the face is fully exposed. I did a set on this look a little while ago called Full Female Faces. The next is one where the hair is used almost as a screen, shielding all or part of the face. This can be intentional or incidental. My set Women with Hair in Their Faces provides some examples of this look. Today I decided to look at how women use their hair to frame their faces, how it can be used to accentuate without obscuring. Going through my 1000faces there are LOTS of examples so I had to be picky. I hope you enjoy the ones I’ve chosen. Are there other ways to think about the way women wear their hair in relation to their faces? If you think of any I’d love to hear about it.
