My website:

Torn cloth (not a kimono), a desk lamp, and a canon a80 powershot. Thank you everybody who has faved this. =o)

Not a stock photo! Please do not edit or redistribute this photo.


The first time I ever saw this deviation was on the adCAST before I upgraded, and when I saw it, I the first thing I thought was this:

"Who is that?"

Apparently, it's you, =Apri1.

The way you appear in the photo is very mysterious, and shooting it in black & white only enhances that aura.

The title is quite creative, I can tell you got it from the fact that your face didn't show in the photo.

Also, this really looks like a lot of work went into it, when in fact it was very impromptu, with an old cloth as a dress, and a desk lamp as a light source.
I also like the patterns on the parasol.

Overall, a true winner, and if you hadn't chosen it for your adCAST, I would have suggested it as a Daily Deviation.

Vision: The overall theme of this piece is mysterious.

Originality: This is original in the fact that it looks professional when it was in fact impromptu.

Technique: The piece is very well created, even if skill was used to a minimum

Impact: Beyond words.
