I walk by the window, see her inside, just sitting there and my thoughts are, as follows: "1. Such an arrogant girl, who does she think she is, enjoying her tea and feeling self-sufficient like that?! What, am I of no use to you?! You're too good for me, or what?! 2. Look at her, she's lonely and sad. Just like me. Perhaps I should come over and say 'Hi! Is this seat taken?' Neah, she'll say 'Yes, it is!' I'll probably ruin her evening anyway. 3. I wonder if that's my future wife. Would I ever see her again? 4. Why are STILL so gloomy, thinking about that guy? He's a jerk, forget him! Take me instead 5. Ok, she'll notice I'm staring and she'll think ' What a creep!' better go home. 6. Will I ever see her again? 7. Why doesn't she even notice other people, I have a great sense of humor , you know? But you'll probably never see it in action. 8. This life sucks. 9. Wonder if it would be corny if I go over there and just propose her hand in marriage. Why? because you looked so sad and I wanted to make you happy 10. All girls are unobtainable fortresses. I HATE THEM ALL! 11. I wonder if she'll recognize me tomorrow if we cross paths. Would she go ' Hey, you're that creep from the coffee shop! I know you!' 12. If I go inside and just ... kiss her, would that be considered a capital offense? 13. Jesus, will I ever get laid with this kind of mindset? 14. Am I over thinking things? 15. Will I see her again? 16. Was she happy? 17. Was she sad? 18. Did she had a boyfriend? 19. Will I have a girlfriend this year? 20. I'm Home. 21. Fuck. I hate my life. 22. Cute girl, though...
I'm not even sure why I like this so much. It's truly beautiful, but more than that, its emotive.
Its so soft and delicately lit. The cold tone of her skin does a lot to put the idea of winter in my head, more than her hat And the expression is perfect, but I can't even begin to describe what I see in it.
The lone mug, and the reflection of light on the table speaks volumes. I kind of feel like she's waiting for something (or someone) but is still really lonely.
I can see why you love unfocused lights - and I am going to have to have a go - because it works so well here. They add a really dream like quality, but also some semblance of depth.
In all, I love almost every aspect of this picture. I personally think the sharp colours and contrasts of her blue top are slightly overpowering for an otherwise very subtle image, but it doesn't detract from the overall. And as much as this brings the girl into focus, I can't help thinking the lights across the street and that lonely mug are the main elements here.
I'm gonna stop here, coz I've gone on ages, but I love this. Very good work. Now I have to find others like it in your gallery
I love the detail of the reflected lights on the table--fabulous attention to reflective surfaces! I also really like the crisp look of your colors in this, everything feels "cool" despite the reds and browns, which is really lovely.
hey just a question. Do you have one of those electronic pad things? You know, those things you can draw on and it goes straight into your computer. And if so, how much do they cost? I guess that's two questions, sorry. Oh, and I just discovered the harry potter puppets, THEY'RE HILARIOUS! That's your brother, right? I think I even saw you in one of the videos. Funny stuff. lol
