<<< o >>>bobbi and the shadow 15 comments + add yours

I've been in Bulgaria since Thursday, but haven't had an opportunity to go out shooting yet so am posting another shot from my recent trip to Dubai. This one is another shot of my good friend Bobbi Lane, taken in the Dubai Mall.

Tomorrow though, Craig and I are going to drive over the Shipka Pass, which should be fun. It's an hour both ways and I'm absolutely determined that I'm going to get a good shot :)

It's as if we see her alter-ego as a shadow, divided like two frames with that slide stripe, or whatever it's called :)

Interesting shot, I think I prefer this to any other portraits from your recent Dubai trip. Enjoy Bulgaria, I hear they have great food for very little money. ;)

Dave, this is a great shot, the attention to the moment here is fantastic, especially as I know, that Bobbi hadn't been prompted to stand there. Fantastic mate...
Oh and our trip tomorrow, I'm going to try and out shoot you!... I mean lets face it, you've been here in Bulgaria a week, and I have shot more than you, and I've only been out with a camera for an hour. http://www.id7.co.uk/portfolio/archives/0905021900_clean.php ..... enjoy.

That is a super shot. It looks like she is right into the moment.

Great composite!

And enjoy Bulgaria - I was there .. uhh.. 6 years ago. Varna has some pretty interesting architecture once you're done with the countryside.

Tricky image. The first look you just think it's her reflection on something, probably because of the postures look a like. Next you realize the reflection got a hair cut!
All in all, really nice image. Thanks for sharing.
