This is very interesting. I’m so digging that look. Very Tokyo! 😉

Thanks. Yes, it is. Or at least a certain side of Tokyo fashion!

This is really a man?:) anyways it is a really cool picture. Balanced excellently.

To be honest, I don’t think so. In fact at the time the thought never even entered my head. The title isn’t meant to be a reference to that either. The backdrop reminded me of The Handmaid’s Tale greeting, ‘under his eye’, hence its use.
But. When my wife saw the photo, she immediately thought it might be a man, so it could be a reference, albeit an unintended one, after all!

Great find! I think there’s something kinda weird about those eyes contrast with the individualistic fashion. Very cool! 🙂

Thanks. Definitely an interesting backdrop. Not at all the photo I hoped to get if I’m honest, but happy with results.

You have captured a very striking scene there. Poor girl looks like a butterfly about to be pinned to a board. Maybe she thought you a fashion “hunter” photographer and is scouring the tokyofashion website for the images 🙂
I just asked my wife what she though and she immediately said man. Though there may be some bias there given some of the other less debateable subjects who have crossed your lens in the past 🙂

Haha, she does a bit, doesn’t she? Not my usual kind of shot, but always a good challenge to do something a bit different.
Interestingly that was exactly the same reaction as my wife, except I didn’t ask. It wasn’t a possibility I ‘d even considered. She just looked at it and immediately asked if it was a man. I simply didn’t see it, although now, having looked closely at the full-sized, uncompressed file, I have my doubts, but that could well be because the idea has been put in my head. Either way though, it’s fascinating how different people see such different things.

black white and blue (sometimes with a little pink in it).

Yeah, those colours worked really well. Couldn’t have planned it any better really.
