Eleanor


Eleanor is a social worker.  To earn some extra money, she works
in a clothing store on Saturdays.  Eleanor has loved riding horses since
she was a little girl.  This year she got her own horse, Irish Mist, which she calls Frosty.

Our salary scales do not make sense. Here is a beautiful young woman who is employed in a very valuable profession, taking care of many of society's issues and she needs to work a second job?! Perhaps we could transfer some of the reverence for sports figures and entertainment Gods to other more valuable fields, e.g. social work and education!!

I agree with Kate. So would my late mother, a social worker, and my sister-in-law, who is the director of social work at a VA hospital. We have a very good friend who was a social worker, but then went into HR for a regional gas utility company. Social work is a good background for HR.

She is lovely. Yep, the salaries do not make any sense at all. Ask a teacher?

Michelle said...

We don't value the correct people with our American salary scale. Sad, but true. She is a lovely young lady.

What a lovely smile.I agree with the previous commentators. I have lots of friends who work second jobs to make ends meet.

That is a fine smile.

She has a radiant smile.

Thanks for the heads up about this post, Jack! She is a lovely young woman and looks kind so I'm sure she is a wonderful social worker.

Janet said...

Wonderful photos, Jack. Of course, I may be a tad biased! :) And I agree with all of the comments about important careers being undervalued by society (think public school teachers as well as social workers).

I wonder if her dress came from the clothing store she works in? If it did, I'll have to visit next time I'm in the US.

Another wonderful portrait, Jack. You do have an ability to bring out the best in people pictures. Yes, our society undervalues those in education and social service primarily because our society undervalues women and their contributions. Traditionally these were women's jobs.

I assure you that the Story Book house is in SD, but the red chair overlooking the river is in Iowa. That's a friend's back yard. His house is built of stone and dates from the 1840s. It's lovely.

She's a sweetie! And she looks like someone our Swedish friend would photograph. Nice portraits!

Sweet looking girl and obviously very enterprising.

Serene photos of a lovely girl.

Lovely photos of this very pretty young woman.

FYI: I agree with Kate. Too many humans have their priorities ALL wrong. Just sayin'.

Sharon Anck said...

Eleanor is what you call a natural beauty!

Sylvia K said...

A natural beauty she is indeed! Wonderful captures as always. I agree with others regarding humans and their priorities, WRONG indeed!! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend, Jack!!

Gosh riding sure keeps you in shape, Eleanore is lovely Jack!
p.s. I loved your whole series of shots from 56 Arbor Street, the portrait of Aisha was so full of joi de vivre!

Halcyon said...

It makes me sad that a social worker has to have a second job. She is doing important work for our society.
Happy though that she has fulfilled her dream of getting her own horse. :)

Susie said...

Wow, Eleanor's looking stunning these days! Nice pictures, dad:)
