The Guns of August

The most famous gun of August was a 1910 Browning. The less famous gun of April — the girl in the photo — is an 1896 Mauser.

Though less well known than Gavrilo, I think she’s cuter…and easier on visiting dignitaries.

      She is beautiful, and as usual, your art is excellent. If she feels healthy, kudos. But from my knowledge of physiology, if she wants to indulge in the culinary arts and explore a bit of indulgence, she’d be none the worse for wear. It’s hard to say from a mere photo. I’d also like to add, the ideology of the photos wouldn’t come through without her extreme leanness. It’s a hard balancing act.

    Interesting use of depth of field in the last picture. The subject is the girl; the gun is an accessory. Well, she is the most interesting.
