[Vwoolf] crowdsourcing a photograph

Yes, the white triangle is the fencing. But below it is something that is probably the hat band or interior of the hat. And, while I would like to think that the darkness coming down is a jacket, I might have to concede it is only a shadow. I’d be much happier if it were a jacket or wrap instead of a shadow. I was looking for the same sort of sartorial purposefulness that is in the other shots.

I have the uncropped version from the first edition and keep looking at the two other photographs taken the same day that appear in Glendinnig. One makes it clear that the walking stick is more of a shepherd’s crook, but no jacket or wrap appears.

Thanks for your input. Although it feels a bit like “Where’s Waldo,” it’s nice to see you (especially you, Stuart) saw the ambiguity the shadows created.

Surely the white triangle is the top of the diagonal bit of fencing?  Or am I looking at the wrong white triangle?

You were all so helpful before, when I was asking about a different photograph in Orlando. I’m at my wit’s end and would like to crowdsource again. What do you think Vita is holding in this photograph? I’m including both the full photo and the area in question.  I know this might seem like a silly question. but I’m working on an article about how orchestrated the illustrations are, and this is the last piece.  If all the other illustrations were carefully constructed, this one would be too, and I cannot make out two items:  the white triangular item close to the top (not the fence, just below it) and the drape-like item that extends to the left of her skirt.  It’s not a shadow, the contours don’t match.

Any takers?
