Several times during the long mid-day meal, Frida, because her spine hurt, would get up and walk a little. Often she stopped to embrace Diego's head, which pleased him. I just said (because I had my camera shooting everything that day), "Please just stay exactly like you are for a minute so I can photograph you". They did.; Emmy Lou Packard, 1984<br> Date based on date of image, not print.
