And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
- William Shakespeare, As You Like It
"This world is naught but a puppet show for bored gods. The puppet masters have done everything in their power to deceive the marionettes. They convince the puppets that there is no puppet show and that there are no spectators. They call the puppet theatre world, the puppets are called people, and the spectacle is called life."
- Arnon Grunberg, Praise Of Folly 2001
what a beautiful model...
and perfect light... mesmerizing.
A lovely girl, beautifully captured. Her gaze seems to have much more weight somehow with the color information removed from the photo. But I like both versions; so much in fact that each time you post a new photo of this particular model, I feel the overwhelming urge to stab myself in the arm with a pencil. Well done!
