Guest Photo of the Day: she had a phobia of strangers


she had a phobia of strangers, originally uploaded by holly.skye.
Holly Skye is another of many photographers whose photos seem, to me, overly staged and "artistic." In my humble opinion, the ones that are most beautiful and affecting are those like this one that achieve that artistic transcendance by working with a natural subject, without the artifice of props and staged drama. The nearly monochrome look of this one, the haunting look in the woman's eyes, the passive cat whose attention is clearly elsewhere... it all combines to make this a very intriguing photo.
