STEP BACK IN TIME WITH ME...
I love old pictures! And this one especially appeals to me. Don't know who the girl is or what the occasion was for the photo, but the way she's standing there next to that fancy car in snazzy clothes and wearing a lush fur coat makes me think she's set for a night on the town.
There is something about the 1920s that really intrigues me. How about you? Think dance halls, flappers, prohibition, the mafia, speakeasies, automobiles, telephones, and the onset of the Depression era. Currently, I'm working on a series set in Wabash, Indiana called "River of Hope", and its setting is the 1920s. Anytime I write a historical series, I wrap myself up in that particular era - in other words, I eat, sleep, and drink it, which is what I'm doing now.
Take a closer look at this picture. (You can click on it to enlarge!) What do you see when you look into that young lady's eyes? Hope? Hidden hurts? Love? Innocence? Or maybe mischief? I would love to know the story behind this image, but I guess I'll just have to rely on my imagination. I could build an entire story around this photo. Hmm, maybe I will.
