I found D's haunting blue eyes and angular bone structure the stuff of which great portraits are made. I think she said she grew up in the neighborhood. She lived around the corner from me and some time after these photos were made she seemed to have gotten her life in order. I often saw her sitting on the stoop of her rowhome, or pushing a baby stroller with her man. She apparently left the neighborhood around 2013 and I have not seen her since.
