She left me today,

I first met Dee Dee last August. It began with an email offering to to do a shoot for the company she is with. They're called ShinyTrinket and you can see the photography I've done for them on their site. As well as rings, earrings, and bracelets, there were some necklaces that would show off better if they were modeled. So we all agreed that Dee Dee would come over for the shoot and be the model.

Dee Dee doesn't travel very well and she was in pieces when she arrived at the studio. However, it didn't take long for all of us to help to get her pulled together again and ready to model for us. The shoot went really well and  Dee Dee was the perfect model. When we were done, there were some circumstances in play and I said it would be fine for Dee Dee to stay with me for a couple of days before going back to the people at ShinyTrinket.

It was very easy to have her as a house guest and she never once tired of modeling for me whenever I wanted to try out any lighting ideas or such. Even though she was really quiet, I did miss her around the studio when she left.

I had another shoot for ShinyTrinket at the end of September and had the pleasure of Dee Dee coming to model for me again.

And then last Sunday she came over for another shoot. Shoot went well and Dee Dee stayed, — until today. You see, she belongs to ShinyTrinket and they came and collected her today. Even though she's just a mannequin , I always try to be gentle as I take her apart before carrying her out and placing her various parts into someones vehicle. But if she could speak, I wonder what she would tell you...
