Jilly long legs and the Royal Courts of Justice
This is Delores Deluxe.
This photo was taken at the Seven Stars, where we both worked in 2002 or similar. I barely knew her at the time. She had a birthday party with the theme "musicals".
I always took my camera to work ( or to wherever really) at the time, so it was a perfect opportunity to leave the bar unattended and do anything but my actual job.
She has these amazing legs that won't quit, so I wanted to immortalise them.
"make my legs look longer", she said right before I took this. So I did. This is called Jilly long legs.
It was taken on a very grainy film, mostly because I love grain but also because I hate flash.
Jilly became my muse shortly after that as she's not only good looking, she also can stay very very still during long exposures.
