Angels are messengers, women are angels.

When I was much younger there was a dress-up-dance-in-the-streets in Copenhagen. At one point I was standing in the crowds in a tiny cinema in central town, and across from me was this tall vision with bright red long hair. She had on a long, dark blue patterned dress, and the dress had a long slit while revealed the entirety of her left leg. I was mesmerised.

There are so many moments in the past where I now wish I'd had a camera.

Update: I was challenged to draw it. I'm out of practice, but here's a very quick sketch.

Pick up a pencil and draw her as you remember. Post the drawing on your blog. We will enjoy seeing it.

Thanks. I've now made an attempt.

... I haven't drawn realistically for 20 years. And unless you're very highly trained, it really takes photographic support to make it good.
