This was a room created by the famous Carlos from Venezuela..tho' he is now living in Paris.
I just wonder what she is thinking...

Wow, girl!

That is a very surreal scene, like something out of a science fiction movie. And that’s makes it so very interesting. It also reminds me of those 80’s TV or advertising work, where wired light and colours showed up almost everywhere back then.
This is not one of your ‘usual’ snap shots of life, street-live scenes of moments either. It’s actually very crafty and thought inspiriting.

Very simple and utterly effective in my opinion. But only those two people in your scene make the image really work so well. Light + colour = emotions!
