Thanks, Paul! Always nice to hear from you.
Stunning photographs Kristin, as always. You capture the spirit of the event with an unerringly artistic eye.
Richard, thank you. I’m so pleased you like them as you are a man of exquisite taste.
Loved thos pics, had the edgy feel and originality of some of the Grunge music photo’s by Charles Peterson. Congrat’s on the 1 year anniversary too!
I’ve seen Peterson’s work; it’s fantastic. What a great compliment. Thanks, Sean.
This slideshow is so very cool, Kristin! Pictures are worth a thousand words. A million. Millions. Way more. It’s infinite. And your contribution to the PMM party is profound. You document your world in a way that shows it as delicious, wild, free, wonderful, irresistible as it is. If you can keep one foot on the ground! You can, you do, and I admire that and your craft : )
I’m stunned by your comments, Miss Alister. Thank you so much!
Kristin, your photography is simply a wonder. If I were to hold the same camera at the same moment, would I be able to capture every curve, muscle and shadow of the pyromaniac’s back? Or the swirl of fire at the man’s feet? I think not.
Elegant (and damn cool!)
Jodi, thanks. You know what’s interesting? I never thought of them as pyromaniacs, but yes, if inflicted with that disorder- it would probably be best to find a legal outlet.
In the back, behind the stunning central figures, the haunted, blank eyes of the observers are another kind of truth. Mistress Night your carnivale is stunning.
Late to the party I am, but in awe I will continue to be. Thanks Kristin. Beautiful.
