Ron Vogel Outdoors (Chaise Lounge)
There is a series of photographs that Ron took in a backyard. I’ve often referred to them as the “chaise lounge” photos because there is a green chaise lounge in all of them. Usually I’m sitting on lying on it. Ron published a set from this group in Lure, v1, n2 (1963) and later a few photos from it in several other magazines — for example, in Black Silk Stockings, 1965, Delite, v3, n2 (1963), Sassy, 1963, and Flirt, 1965. Only in the 1963 issue of Lure did all the photos come from this outdoors set. In the other magazines, Ron mixed photos from several settings, but he did include a few (and sometimes more than a few) from the chaise lounge set. Ron didn’t take many nudes in this setting, but the magazines published several non-nudes — for example, me in my underwear removing my dress. Here are the best of a large series of photos:
A the beginning of the session, I was wearing a two-piece sleeveless dress. This black and white outfit was my own and there is a story that goes with it that I must write someday.
Having removed the top layer, I am next seem unzipping the back of the sheath dress. This photo appeared in Black Silk Stockings.
Now the dress is open at the back, showing my underwear. This photo appeared in both Black Silk Stockings and Sassy.
Almost ready to step out of the dress. This photo also appeared in Black Silk Stockings.
Stepping out of the dress. This photo appeared in both Black Silk Stockings and in Flirt.
The dress removed, I’m now wearing the tunic that covered the dress. A dance pose, one of my favorites in this series.

This was a color photo of me removing my stocking. It was never published and I own the transparency.
