When I first saw Tawnie and her girlfriends the words “cancer survivor” flashed through
my mind. The second thought was Indian actress Persis Khambatta who got her big acting
break when she shaved her head to play Lt. Ilia in the first Star Trek movie. Ok, I admit
it… I’m a Trekkie. As we began chatting she explained she cut her afros shorter and
shorter until one day she decided to go bald. Her face lit up as she described how liberating
it felt. I imagine the phrase “bad hair day” is no longer part of her vocabulary. She kindly
posed for a couple photos before had to rejoining her girlfriends. I would have loved a few
more minutes to capture a variety of images.

Chenxi was in a rush to head home after classes so I only had a few shots before she had to leave. Unfortunately I didn’t speak her language but I did understand she bought her dress in Japan.

Shannon is a VFW volunteer. I had seen her several times during VFW in jeans, sneakers and an oversized sweater. What a transformation!

Tiffany was meeting friends for dinner. As she posed for a couple photos, she told me her heels were borrowed from a girlfriend and her dress was bought earlier that evening. The light was dropping fast and unfortunately the photos are a bit grainy.
