Looking for Mabel

 

Every once in a while I have marveled at the mercurial quality of Mabel in photographs even the ones taken during the same shoot but as I was looking at the picture I have of Mabel used as a promotion for Jinx; I kept thinking her expression seemed very familiar but because this is such an iconic photo perhaps I was remembering it from a different print of it.  I found out why I kept thinking I had seem it, I had seen it many, many times and so have you! I was seeing it for the first time (again)?
