Good evening. 4th April and number ninety-four in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

The title is taken from a Marillion track which is on the album Brave.

Paper Lies by Marillion

Good morning

When you look into the mirror
Do you see a face you hardly recognize?
If you look into the sun too long
Do the things you see begin to burn your eyes?

Paper lies

Just to express what he’s thinking
Must a man take all the mail will bring
Are we living only for today
It’s a sign of the times, we believe anything and nothing

Paper lies

When you kill the truth
You can make a killing
You might just make losing look like winning

You came to tell the people what’s goin’ on
But nobody knows whose side you’re on
Seems like you’re sailin’ pretty close to the wind again

Paper lies
You have already won a prize

I know something that you don’t know
Something that you ought to know
It’s burning a hole in my pocket book
Listen, do you want to know a secret?

We can print our own money here
If you let us do a piece on you
We can take you to pieces

When you look into the money
Do you see a face you hardly recognize?
When you get behind the news of the world
Do the things you find begin to bend your mind?

Paper lies

Why don’t you let us take a piece out of you?

Taken this evening at home.

The mask had levels adjusted and a high pass filter layer at three pixels. It was then converted to black and white and placed on to a texture layer and erased to blend in.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
