I have seen Juanita many times while walking home from work on 15th Ave but somehow I have never had my camera with me on any of those days. At 90 years old Juanita is undoubtably more experienced at putting together an outfit that she loves than anyone else I have photographed. I have noticed her in sequins bright colors and ornate jewelry other times we have passed each other. Juanita makes me feel so inspired to always wear what I love and to continue to enjoy the act of putting together an outfit rather than seeing it as a chore.
Juanita has lived on the back of Capitol Hill for much of her life and has always walked and taken the bus everywhere she goes in the neighborhood. I can't wait to photograph her style again in the future. I better have my camera with me again next time.
