One of the Irrigation Festival Royalty girls took me up on my offer of a "Complimentary" Fine Art BW Sessions.

Especially love the first one (the second is also lovely and unusual). What gets me about the first is a sense of timelessness, although I tend to want to place it in the late 19th century. It's like coming across a damaged old cabinet card with its fading albumen print. The card itself has been water damaged long ago and the cardboard is shredding and breaking off so parts of her great pile of hair are missing but we can still see her locket, and those eyes! Wow.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

These are lovely. The first one is very appealing. I am assuming you used some of those same tools you used in the Lavender series? If so, it's equally effective in monochrome as it was in color, with more of a vintage look.

I like both of these Ernst, but prefer the first most because of the expression. To me, there is a combination between innocence and sadness. Very well done.
