DATE: July 1995
READY: Self-portrait times 25. Hot, sticky July. Bumper crop
of mosquitoes. Behind the scenes: tripod, camera w/timer, large
can of insect repellent, towels to mop sweat from our faces.
AIM: To get a good photo for the invitation to our annual Labor
Day party (We write mysteries for a living, so it was only natural
to go gangster-themed for the invitations.)
(Just ask Pretty Boy Loren!)
SHOOT: Twenty-five times, I framed the shot, then ran through
weeds and brambles in heels and stockings to grab cigarette,
strike a garter-baring pose, and pull a Bonnie Parker attitude
before the seven-second timer triggered the lens. Signed: Machine
