She Dreamed of Paradise

Looking at this window, I began to imagine a girl in her bedroom, living in pretty miserable conditions, but always dreaming of a better life, and then the song by Coldplay popped in my head. A link to the song is below:

@bdb3471 thank you Brian! I seem to be going back and forth between traditional beauty and grunge beauty lately.

@pjonas thank you Patty!

@jsw0109 if it wasn't for the imagination, I probably wouldn't have taken this picture... and I actually really like it.

Can't help but wonder about an abandon building's past life. Great texture with the brick.

You have a great imagination… she so needs you to rescue her :)

Sigh, you make me wish I was more articulate so I could put in words how much I love that you think every photo tells a story. Love this, and as always, Great job!

@sugarmuser maybe she's the one that was in my coffee the other day

@dishaparekh176 awww, thank you so much Disha!

Very nice find, well captured.

@jsw0109 She must have been the size of Thumberlina to fit in your coffee cup, either that or your cup is massive. :)

@sugarmuser I was referring to the face in my coffee (which was actually the cloud overhead)

Really evocative photo, Jeff. I love the story it made you imagine. Have you ever tried writing? Just wondering...
posted April 24th, 2012  
That is a lovely shot!!

Terrific shot Jeff

Awesome B&W! I love the textures!

This is a great shot and interesting words too. Nice one.

@lauriehiggins I used to write all the time... I started writing when I was in grade school. I was actually working on a project when my mom passed away... haven't been able to write since, no matter how hard I try. The more I searched for my writer's voice, the more I started seeing things in the world differently, and that's when I started taking pictures. I guess you can say my eyes have become my voice.

@ausgussy thank you Angus!

@swilde thanks Sue!

@orangecrush thank you Jerry! The textures and the way the glass was broken was what drew my eye

@netkonnexion thank you!

nicely processed Jeff!

Love the textures! Thank you for your suggestions, I do comment quite a bit :p I don't know why I don't fav things xD I do try and comment on discussions etc but hopefully I'll have more time to do so once school's out :)

This is an excellent photo and evokes thoughts of "how do I escape from this?" Love the processing, which totally adds the tone to your photo.

An air of mystery about this picture.

@seanoneill thanks Sean!

@wardie thank you Paul, glad you appreciated it
posted April 25th, 2012  
I think I would love to see this with a bit less vignetting. I think it makes the eye move away from the broken glass and the texture of the brick
posted April 26th, 2012  
Great black and white.
