A Party In Boston ~ Spring 1964

I have no recollection of who she was. I don't remember her name or exactly where the party was. A group of us were at somebody's apartment having a good time. College age people were still making do with bookcases made out of concrete blocks and bare lumber, and just about everybody had a footlocker being used for storage as well as serving double duty as a coffee table or an extra seat. Clothing, though, had yet to adopt the hippie look of studied slovenliness. Heels and a skirt or slacks and a sport jacket were still in fashion. Together with red lips and the pointy tip bra made famous by famous blonde movie star Marilyn Monroe this resulted in some very sexy looking broads. Believe it or not, this was not a posed picture, and I only exposed two frames of the two of them together. The shot of her playing guitar was also one of only two frames, and the other one was vertical.

For a camera I was using a Leica III-f with a 50mm f/1.8 Canon lens
