I’m waiting for Janay Rice to wake up and realize she’s the victim of domestic violence.  Look at this photo - it’s so sad, she’s so within herself and withdrawn. I hope someone helps her and stops focusing on this abuser loosing his job for knocking her out.   breakingnews:

Ray Rice’s wife breaks silence about domestic violence incident
The Baltimore Sun: Ray Rice’s wife Janay broke her silence about the couple’s domestic violence incident on Tuesday, writing in an Instagram post:

"I woke up this morning feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I’m mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote. "But to have to accept the fact that it’s reality is a nightmare in itself. No one knows the pain that [the] media & unwanted options from the public has caused my family. To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass [off] for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific.

Two years ago I took the portrait of an academic. I refused to accept money for the sitting.  I wanted to photograph her because she was very shy about the process and didn’t like the thought of her portrait being taken. But being an academic she had to have a headshot for conferences, publications, etc.  She said she would make a quilt for trade, for which I agreed but seriously did not think she would follow through. I didn’t expect it. I simply agreed because I thought she would back out of the sitting. Last week the quilt was presented, a floral mish-mash!  It’s absolutely beautiful and I was humbled with this amazing and stunning gift. It brought me to tears.  softservegirl:
