Ellie outside Dapto Leagues Club. It was late in the afternoon and there was a soft bluish light. Ellie very nicely stopped for a few portraits. I admired her hairstyle, her face and her bright yellow phone cover. Only later, after looking at the film, did I notice marks on her left wrist. I was shocked and felt almost ill that I had observed and photographed this person without understanding or getting to know her.
