I was thinking of my friend and talented model Jesse - and that inspired this posting. I trust that she is doing well. A nude of Jesse from this series - tomorrow.

Beautiful model, and portrait, Stephen - looks like it was a tad cold there for the shoot.

@dobbino: It was breezy, mostly cloudy, and chill - but Jesse is a goddess of nature and adapts better than most. The warm car and hot tea was most welcomed by the time we hiked out of here.

Love the bracelet's tone, color and texture. I imagine the teal blue of the sea. Ashame it isn't software in the background on the bottom third of the frame to tie the two together. A lovely image, well executed. Bravo!
