What Character Are You And Why?

Providing psychic readings takes so much out of me. A sale I recently offered on eBay just ended and having provided just three very detailed readings in a row (so far - more to go) I'm already craving a huge double chocolate ice-cream cake with fudge filling and a dark chocolate cream center with dark chocolate frosting on top.

Seriously. I need some "energy food." I feel like taking a nap and it's only 2 p.m.!

LOOK CLOSELY AT THE FOLLOWING PHOTO. Which character are YOU and why/what are you thinking? {Seriously? They needed to play some good music in the background or something.} Click on the photo to see it in its original (larger_context).

I already have dibs on the girl, second row, far left. She looks about as exhausted as I feel.

{{Think they had this image taken after working hard in the fields all day?}}

This photo looks post civil war, due to the popularity of beards. Only the gallant young officer had been shaving. That sitting teen seems to regard slouching, as an artform, and many of the women were looking at the camera with some suspicion, so it looks like this family was getting its first photo, and the contraption was rather new. They probably didn't expect the picture to be so quick, and wondered that the photographer didn't stop to mix his paints, or pick up a brush. It's remarkably lifelike, for just a pencil sketch.

I wonder if Sun Tiger might just be at her most natural, when stiffly un-natural.

Arawn ~ Do you not just marvel at the plethora of art available to us on the Internet, if we just LOOK FOR IT???

I think (and I could definitely be wrong) but the photo of the day took oober-long minutes of extended exposure to create a picture that was not blurred.

And to think I could LOOK "natural," posing unnaturally "stiff" (as the day upon which I will die, physically) I imagine I will also look "natural" that way; laying in the coffin. {Thank you so much, Arawn, for the heart-felt laugh your comment gave to me.}

I am the photographer because I create.

You're right, it took many minutes to get an non-blurred photo. In many cases, they had braces on the back of the neck, to keep people still.

JadedJ ~ So THAT's why the young kids (especially) look like they're having so much fun! {cough}.

You're a very GOOD photographer, by the way. :D
