This is another shot from my first photo shoot. It’s my favourite because of the amount of emotion that comes through. I always liked Rapunzel; children always seem to pay for their parents’ mistakes and in that way the tale is quite realistic. Depending on the version of the tale you read Rapunzel does quite a lot to free herself, other than most of the other princesses, which only seem to hang around, often asleep or otherwise incapacitated, waiting to be rescued. ;-) I am still waiting for a gung-ho princess, although, saying that Fhiona from Shrek was a good start….

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Wow Sybille an emotional expression indeed. Looking at this now, I feel depending upon the viewers emotional state, Francescas’ expression will be interpreted as mirrored emotions (of the viewer – if that makes sense!). Beautiful capture and gorgeous post-processing work. :)

  • Thanks so much Trudi. Much appreciated. :-)
