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.

      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.

      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.

      So very very true.
