I had the same reaction to this photo. The grimaces on the faces of the yogis, yes, but particularly the look on the face of the woman on the right. She's clearly a part of the yoga culture, and yet she's there and open-minded and willing, and she's thinking, WTF am I doing here? Can I possibly do that? I didn't see it so much as a reluctance to raise her skirts--although there is that--as of feeling that this is something that's just really foreign to her. BagNewsNotes guest column?


Sorry, I left a key word out: I meant to say "She's clearly NOT a part of the yoga culture..."

I love, love, LOVE this photo. A perfect example of how photography's frozen moment invites us to speculate about what happens next. Will she or won't she lift her leg (and her skirt)? Oh, my.

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
