 Princess Irina Golitsyna,
1916- 2006
known as Irene Golitzine
had a fashion house
in Rome.
Her portrait 
for the American Vogue 
a few years
before she died,

"Her most famous design was the evening pants she introduced in Florence about a decade after starting her company, with styles either slim and embroidered or flowing in gauzy fabrics. Diana Vreeland, in Vogue, called them “palazzo pajamas,” after the setting of the shows in the Palazzo Pitti."

 New York, on a rooftop.

Lake Waramaug, Connecticut.
 A Swiss train station.

Disregarded photographs,
never selected, never printed,
taken but forgotten,
What happens to them ?
The digital ones, we delete.
Negatives piled in boxes
await a better future.

My favorite photos are the ones
I forgot all about.

 October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper, "October's Party"

A lot to catch up
