  • LOL, I keep coming back to this pic cos i love it, but I think I'm in love with your arse! :-) - Haggis Chick
  • All mine...CHOMP! LOL - Mr Wolfy
  • oh yes...I remember very well...from the first time I saw this pic my eyes were immediately drawn by this brilliant little blurred detail...Not that I like less other things like the box, the tones, and the flying legs (they’re all great)...but the moving hand just makes it all *perfect* :) - RossinaBossioB

There is definite inspiration from Julia Fullerton-Batten's series 'In Between' in this, especially from the image 'Mirror' (viewable on her website) which I like. And I was also thinking of Oladios' image State of Suspension when deciding what kind of levitating position to use.
