Canon 350D, 50mm lens

One strong lamp (not a studio light – just an extra strong household lamp for fiddly work. That’s why it’s yellow.) The shapes in the background are Debby’s shoulder, and then her feet, crossed at the ankle. The lens flare was added in photoshop. I added motion blur to the lens flare. I’m sure it’s an insult to the laws of physics.

A curious London-born girl trained in the Cambridge analytic tradition of philosophy and generative linguistics, but occasionally arty and/or artsy. Usually eminently logical.
