'Possibly a f-f-failing oxygenation of the b-b-brain' - Life of Pi

Playing with sheers and new techniques. Model draped in a sheer curtain panel. Nikon D80 + Tokina 11-16mm. 2 second exposure on manual mode. Triggered the shutter then manually flashed using the SB-600 from behind the model, bouncing the flash against the wall behind the model. Then allowed the flash to dissipate for the remaining exposure creating the silhouette.

I normally hate explaining concepts but I think this one's a bit too abstruse (or poorly conceptualized) to understand easily. And it's a good concept/topic worthy of discussion or at least a passing thought.

This image is about death and the leap of faith that we face upon our deathbeds either to accept some form of a God (or Gods) or deny it/him/her (or them). It takes faith to absolutely accept the existence of a God (or Gods). But it also takes faith to absolutely deny said God (or Gods). So as we lie dying, as we travel like jets breaking the sound barrier towards our inevitable deaths, we must choose. Else, our lack of faith may cause us to miss out on 'the better story.'

PS: happy 12/12/12 :lol:

I was caught off-guard when I stumbled upon this picture. Just stunning. I'd like to go blind while looking at this kind of beauty.
