Ashes to Ashes

Boy, when you're dead, they really fix you up.  I hope to hell when I do die somebody has sense enough to just dump me in the river or something.  Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetery.  People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap.  Who wants flowers when you're dead?  Nobody.  
~The Catcher in the Rye

Isabel has wanted to do this shoot for a while now... (with the black mesh hat) it was inspired by Madina Stanackzai who was inspired by Jackie Kennedy.

    P.S. So I think this has to be the first time anyone's been "inspired" by any one of my photographs!
