The Lady of Shalott
black mat and silver frame
"Under tower and balcony, 
By garden-wall and gallery, 
A gleaming shape she floated by, 
Dead-pale between the houses high, 
Silent into Camelot. "

- The Lady of Shalott by Lord, Alfred Tennyson

I first heard this poem when I was a child, watching Megan Follows as Anne of Green Gables recite part of the poem as her little boat floated down the river. I later saw John Waterhouse's painting of The Lady and heard Loreena McKennitt's musical version of the poem. 

Here is my version of The Lady of Shalott. My longtime friend Beverly was kind enough to model for me in a dress she made years ago, then partially submerge herself in water while I balanced over her on two slippery rocks, in drizzling rain, to get the shot.
