"Rainy Day People" Deborah Turbeville for Vogue US, 1995 (Lancaster, Massachusetts)
My photos were recently inspiration for the Stromness Writers Group . My friend Gill Tennant had suggested my work as writing prompts, and this image of the Sahara was an option. Here is part of her response: “I kept putting one foot in front of the other and scaling the dune ahead. It was a steep one, and the sand kept slipping as my feet dug in. I finally reached the top in a lather of sweat (...) I threw myself flat on the sand, and looked out over the landscape before me."
