Sidewalk Girl

<- Click here

Alrighty.... Let's think about a little city girl, sitting on the sidewalk, watching stuff happen all around her as the evening comes on. Well, why think about her... instead, here... Think on her. K?



You're right. I rarely EVER remove major pieces of color information from my images. Well, okay, but this isn't a monotone. FAR from it. But I sensed a nostagic eeling when I saw here sitting there outside of her house, her dad sitting behind on the door stoop. She felt like a long ago memory, and I wanted to show you that memory even more than I wanted to show you the Sidewalk Girl


And then there's Snowball..

A different twist on an entry point, this is a great start on showing your memory but it leaves me wanting more... Oh! that's the point....

Memory feelings arrived from the first look on the thumbnail! Reminds me on my beloved fairy-tale "das mädchen mit den schwefelhölzern/the little match-seller", you know?
And how cool is this luminous bottle?
Storytelling at all! Sunny greetings
