As the weather cools here, you can hear the whispers of the waves of the Salton Sea calling “Nora” “Nora” “Nora please come back” “Nora we miss you“. Yes that is what they say, just listen closely! Makeup and Hair Styling by the globe trotting star Blanche LeBeau.
If you read my prior post just below, you know about my chance meeting with Nora Zainglein at the Salton Sea. Also especially lucky that I had my Hasselblad camera with me. Just one of those things when you meet a New York City fashion model dancing around a pole on a vacant road. It is all true! Trust me!
So we drove down a dirt road I know which takes you to a somewhat hidden way to get on the shore of the Sea. Nora seemed to have a wardrobe idea for this spot and changed by the car. Makeup and hair had been somehow perfectly readied by the premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau.
No one there of course and the Salton Sea was beautiful in it’s usual eerie sort of way. Noon and the Sun was high and the temperature hot. Nora embraced the feel and view of it all. Just having been in Manhattan the day before made it quite the scenic change for her. Amused by the long line along the shore of mummified Tilapia, I was sure that thoughts of lunch were not on her mind.
Walking along she raised her face to the Sun and closed her eyes. I said “Nora what are you thinking about?”… She didn’t hear me.
More to come…
