Once, like a spark

Lizzy again because she's just perfect in every way


I have a thing, I've decided, for taking photos of people from behind. I think there's something distracting about people's faces though the emotion and character that is written in an expression tends to take over the frame. Not that I don't like faces, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I like the quiet mystery that a faceless figure gives to a photo. It allows the viewer to focus more on what is going on ahead of the subject--lending the viewer a chance project themselves onto (or to become) the faceless figure, in a way, and see what he or she is seeing.

Or maybe I'm the only one who thinks this way.


To see more photos from the meetup, go here. :)


P.S. This is another one that MUST be seen large on black. You can see little glowing particles dancing in the air :)
