Mirko Herzner from Mühlheim am Main, Germany

This is excellent, Stephen! Two ideas come up with this one: 1. She looks almost like an ancient rogue driving her sword into the ground. 2. Imagine water coming out of this pipe :-)

dj.tigersprout from San Bruno, United States

a joyful image! i love the expression of motion in the wall textures and the lunge of the model! i can only imagine the 'battle' she fought to get the spigot to flow! i agree w/ Isao -- this is certainly full of vitality!

@dj.tigersprout: [ Photographer's NOTEBOOK ]: You can't make this stuff up. Yesterday at about 10:30 AM - my phone rang and it was Molly - the model from this image. We hadn't seen each other in almost two years. She lives in San Diego. She had been up in Eureka (about 400 km north of here) and had just arrived in town in her rental car. So, we had lunch! She came by and saw my office for the first time and I showed here my AM3 post for the day. HER! All unplanned. Today, I am driving her to the airport for her flight back to San Diego.
