Still Lost in the 50s
This is one of my favourites from my '1950s' series of pictures.
It is from a photo of my 'oldest' friend Jane holding her doll Alice. We've been friends for almost 60 years.
(Me and Jane not me and Alice.)
The Madonna symbolism was not unintentional. As soon as I cropped the picture I realized what I was looking at and although that imagery is not as important to me as it once was, the large cross standing between the child and the bleak outside world gives the picture a feeling of hope.
"... and, lo, I am with you always,
even unto the end of the world."
