    Love this! My only wish was if there was less negative space in the foreground so as to that the frame just barely cuts off the tip of her right foot as Egglestone once did in the photo of the suburban woman sitting on the side of the road

    Iris...It wasn't taken in 2009. I took this way back in 1974. I just always liked it and have started looking at some of my old work recently. This one was scanned from the negative.
