song of the siren by suzi9mm song of the siren by suzi9mm
always wanted to do one these wet hair-shots... i learned a lesson, it's not easy, especially without a spray bottle. eventually i just put a drop of water on the lower lip and focused on that and this was my last shot and my fav as well. i have this thing with mermaids, they are sirens, swim deep and then come to the surface and you cannot resist their call... sometimes i think they don't know they are drowning someone, and sometimes they know but don't care because it is what they are born to be like. i want to take plenty of shots inspired by them.


you might recognize the mermaid...it's `SeaFairy :)

when i saw this picture a thousand different feelings rushed through me, I could almost smell the wet earth. This is summer a hot day cooled by a sudden heavy rainfall, I know that her expression isn't cheerfull but i felt a sence of peace within her. as if she is enjoying every drop of rain falling on her. oh and i love the fact that she is ginger and has freckles, adds a lot to the feel of the photo. good job =)
