Miss Saturn: Stray

"Let me not dare, here or anywhere, for my own purposes, or any purposes, to attempt the definition of Poetry, nor answer the question what it is." - Walt Whitman, A Backward Glance


Miss Saturn dances go-go and gets into character at the Friday night Slipper Room burlesque revue. Click to see this shot on a black background, which kind of changes the whole drama of it.


Tech specs: Canon Digital Rebel XT, 1/100 second, f/2.8, ISO 800, 50mm lens.

    Very thoughtful composition and nice textures.
  • Traces in the Sand 9y

    interesting use of colour. It does look good on a black background

  • Jimmy Hemphill PRO 9y

    this is a great photograph -- her posture is so captivating (at first I couldn’t tell if she was dancing or setting on a bar stool) -- I love it

    I keep coming back to stare at this one in my contacts page. Her posture, texture, color, framing--everything is just captivating. Well done.
  • Linus Gelber PRO 9y

    Thanks everybody. Peneli, I keep coming back to this one as well - I don't usually do these partial desaturations, but this one emerged fully blown and graceful. Or at least I think so. But then, the eye remembers what the hand created, so it's hard to tell from the inside.
