The Dressmaker's Daughters 6



PHOTOGRAPHER’S JOURNAL:  Taking our cue from the Food Channel’s “Chopped,” in which contestants are each given four unlikely ingredients from which they must prepare a dish, adding things as needed "from the Chopped pantry and fridge"; today Lazlo and I returned to our secret Chopped kitchen, not in competition, but cooperatively to figure out what else we could do with our cameras, 21 beige manneqins, one charcoal mannequin, and an abandoned opera house. We brought with us an ever-growing collection of props to enrich the chopped pantry.

We may return. All suggestions are welcome, and we will try almost anything so long as it respects the ladies' virtue, such as it is.

With a little bit of collaboration, you can come up with a movie-sized book, Ted!

Thanks for your encouraging words, Ginnie. We're on the task.

Dear anonymous. I'm not sure the owner of the opera house wants its location known. Thanks for visiting.
