    I'm sure there's one of your fantastic story behind this shot but the funny thing is that I've done some shots like this today .......

    ...actually, it's just a spare, but, i love the way she's turning her head away, as if to say, "no..." but the neck is exposed, suggesting vulnerability...it's a beautiful contradiction. she blossoms with beautifully olive skin as soon as the sun comes out in the spring, and in addition to the wisps of hair on her neck, i love the coloring in her lips, skin, and the patch of blue--because she's a patch of clear blue sky to everyone who knows her...my daughter.

    i love shots with half the subjects head missing, or their feet and hands, or a shot with only partial subject....makes us ask, what is the subject anyway? anything that makes us think and look beyond the obvious is good as far as i'm concerned. this photo has all the elements of the unknown, the mysterious, the vulnerability (as you speak of it) and even the familiar...she could be my daughter, too. i have a daughter in california about this age who i havent seen for years and who wont talk to me, and your photo is so direct, so honest in its non-metaphorical quality, so matter-of-fact and ilove that style so much, that it reminds me of my daughter, kylie, and for that reason alone this photo is perfect.

    Wow, that explains so much, Rhio. Jen worked some photo-therapy magic on you. Nice job, Jen!!!

    Glad this image inspired you, Rhio. It speaks volumes as it must have been meant to! Clever shot!

    It's rare to see a great portrait photograph without a full face. This is one.
