I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made
diligent search. Psalms 77: 6

As I mentioned earlier, I have been replacing some of my self portraits in my photo essay on flood lighting
that I did earlier....and I didn't realize that I would replace as many as I did...but I had ample opportunity
to try and improve some of the things that I didn't like during the 4 times my photo essay was nominated..

Thank you for your patience for seeing me through this...I think I learned a little more about flood lighting than when I started out. The truth of the matter... I was and still am a novice:) But we learn by our mistakes.

    I think I like the resultant shadow as much as the orig. figure! Love that flashy red.

    You look outstanding in red and the shadow is of my favorites !! It's nice to see a woman dress up in stylish clothes....I'm such a tomboy....I can't seem to get out of my jeans and t-shirts even though I have many feminine outfits.....
    The old Rod Stewart song comes to mind when I look at this image....." You wear it well "..

    Thank you all for your kind words...It was an extremely difficult project and I could only do this in a private room upstairs entirely away from the rest of the house where I could concentrate..

    Thank you for your comments...Susan I got so burnt out working on the project I couldn't imagine
    what it would be like to be a model...At 70 years old I am just content to be able to concentrate
    on perfecting my photography while my mind still works:)
