I saw Juliette and David across the road from the Left Bank Gallery as they stood close by the bus stop in the Harbour Square. I knew that I had to go over to them. It was one of those moments when you either overcome your reticence or lose the opportunity to capture that special image.

Fortunately they didn’t seem too fazed.

Juliette has the sort of face that Sandro Botticelli or John Everett Millais would have painted. I can see her as the model for the Ford Madox Brown painting, ‘The Last of England’. She has a melancholy beauty. Can you see her standing onboard, as the ship pulls away from its berth, her hair floating in the wind, and then she turns and is gone forever………

Who says romance is dead……

  1. we are all fortunate that you over came your reticence. So much about this is wonderful, but I particularly like the breeze blowing through her hair.
