Wonderful portrait James, xoxo
Thanks very much Anna :)
Great portrait Dunc. She looks determined. Lovely eyes. It’s like a still from a crowd in a wartime movie. Quite compelling.
Thanks Denis, a favourite way to while away a while, is a WW2 flickher eyes matched her hair and the leaves behindshould’ve called this ‘russet death’
Thanks very much Steve :)
She seems focused and strong. Good work.
Thanks Helen, good to see you again :)
“Conscientised” : must remember this new and precise word.Yes…she shows strength, but wary. We will be seeing a lot of this look in future. [ Ha ha, spoken by the generation who said don’t trust anyone over 30 ]We have a bill in congress waiting: anyone suspected of terrorism can be held incommunicado if They feel like it. aak. Of course, the chat is Why should I worry: I Haven’t Done Anything. But They won’t tell you what They think you may have been thinking you did, in Their perception.
Unfortunately I can’t claim ‘conscientised’ as my invention, the word was used in South Africa by the ANC during the apartheid era struggle. Now it has a broader application, but remains heavily laced with the collective memory of it’s origins, e.g. “we must conscientise the people for the need of safe drinking water for all”. I’ve never seen it used outside S.A. before, not even in dictionaries, but thought it a worthy addition to our language too.
The Bill you mention has made the news here and its very scary stuff. Detention without trial…what’s next? Kidnapping? Torture? …oh hang on we already have that (I say we, ‘my’ government is as bad as ‘yours’). Anyway…Noam Chomsky for 2012!
Margot’s comment is perhaps prescient in the light of the report which says that live rounds could be used in similar circumstances to the recent London riots. This is such a haunting image Dunc.
I can only see things getting worse, next year when the cuts really sting, this place is likely to blow.
Her expression drew me in. A fav
Thank you Joseph, me too :)
