A very old analouge negative taken on Boxing Day some twenty odd years ago. This girl was living with my younger sister in Darlinghurst in Sydney at the time and yes there were drugs involved. Neither of them survived the experience. All I have left is some very old photo’s and my memories. To death us do drug. Was that a challenge, a motto or a promise. I could never work it out.

    Very sad photo. Taken many years ago but still true today.

    Thanks derid. I found this image recently and it floored me. The grief is still wrapped all around me. I’m hoping that by sharing this rawness it may help me face it somehow.

    thanks Helene and Andrew. I am so glad you can see the power that is contained within this photo. Its part of what makes me what I am. My own history I guess. Thanks again, I really find it comforting to know that others also are touched by this old image.

    Technically it’s a wonderful shot. It must be gut wrenching for you to share it with us. Thanks for helping get the message out.
