    A pensive moment beautifully captured, Allyson … I wonder what she’s thinking?

    First thought was Ayers Rock. You can almost see the grains of sand, so clear is the shot. The splash of ‘manmade’ colour against the other is striking. Her bracelet. Her hair looks a bit damp, maybe she’s been swimming. So much for the Ayers Rock idea… Or maybe it’s not damp, maybe it’s the light.

    Cheryl asks what she’s thinking… My guess is that it’s either a) the world is a most spectacular and amazing place, or b) I hope we have fries for lunch.

    Gorgeous snap, wherever it may be.

    By any chance is this the same girl that was ‘leaping’ against a dark background in that photo I ‘will’ write about one day…

  4. So evocative and beautiful. Childhood! I can feel the heat of the rocks behind, and almost feel the pensive quality of her preoccupied dreaming as she ambles along. Such lovely colours too, and such a warm and evocative shot.

  5. This looks a bit like the rock you see in the Painted Desert or Death Valley or a place like that but then again… I love the pensive mood of the girl with her dark hair swirling around what you just know will be a lovely spirited face.

  6. Luminous and beautiful! The clarity, the colours, the contrasts, the mood…

  7. The cliff behind looks like a fossilized dinosaur jawbone with huge pointy teeth! Careful!
    Does the girl have her dress on backward (note pocket)?
