the masquerade by summerfield

the masquerade

i love masquerade balls. i have only attended a masquerade ball twice in my life. i have never enjoyed parties and being with so many people around me. but if nobody knows me (or the perception of you not knowing who the people are and they not knowing who you actually are) coupled with a little bit of alcohol, i could actually engage in a decent conversation with strangers. but i confess to you that the only reason i accepted invitations to parties is the food. if i didn't like the food, i would not accept another invitation. i'd rather be home reading.
This could become a movie poster for the right movie -- it has that feel about it. Well done!

I’ve never been to a masquerade and I hate parties for people older than twelve but I Love Phantom of the Opera and this definitely has captured that feel.

Very nice shot and I can relate to not being a big fan of parties. Although Melody loves them

Very nice shot. This could well be a cover of a thriller or of an erotic novel.

I've never been to one, but the sound oddly intriguing. Very cool image!

I get your reasoning. Speaking with strangers at a party is a much more attractive prospect to me than gathering with lots of friends and neighbours. I would rather have my real friends just a few at a time so that we can give each other our full attention. As for a masquerade ball - sounds too grand for me, I have never been invited. You convey an atmosphere of mystery here - as to the story behind the rose. well achieved. Definitely a success.

Beautiful mask and shot!

Love the black background. The rose tops this shot off making it a little more mysterious.

I’ve never been to a masquerade ball. Would be lovely to watch other party goers let their hair down, so to speak, because they are masked.

Knew this was your shot, lovely stillife

I've never had the opportunity, but have always wanted to go to a masquerade. Great capture

I bet you would be most entertaining at a masquerade ball! I really like this photo and agree with all the comments about it being a perfect shot for a movie or a book. You should write the book!

Lovely shot, beautiful mask. I’ve never been to a masquerade party in my life but I think I might enjoy it, not being a people person
