Turning Japanese

By Mounters      
Only when I researched the phrase Turning Japanese to find out who the band were who played the song (The Vapors) did I find it had an unsavoury meaning, oh what a sheltered life I had lead.

Anyway the title probably still works feel free to comment

I didn't know of the song or the band so my life must be even more sheltered! The pic fits the title a treat, and vice-versa; the exposure looks perfect. There is just a slight shadow at the bottom of the kimono, but I doubt my PS skills are up to removing it!

looking through your portfolio sheltered is not a word that springs to mind. A beautifully crisp portrait. Katie

A super portrait with lovely skin tones and love the white background against the black and red of her robe. The eye contact is very good , but somewhere in my memory( which is not as god as it used to be ) I have a feeling that eye contact was not allowed and the head was always downcast. Cue another interesting pose.

Mary's right, I think - but Clover's a lovely Irish Colleen, not Japanese... And sometimes it's the contradictions that make the shot!

LOL at the description, you have to be so careful, and whatever you do don't listen to the latest Lily Allen, it has nothing to do with domestic violence!
