Hanging-up Now

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 19 January 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The amazing Kat Love. (yes, her real name) - San Francisco

One of the most amazing models on our planet. I base this statement not only from having worked with her - but from the remarkable work she has done with other photographers around the world.

Everyone should have their own police call box, because...

"You never know..." - - -(it might be Tuesday)

@ordinaryimages: We haven't been able to tell what he said, Jerry. They still haven't managed to pry his jaw off the desk.

Mirko Herzner from Germany

Now look at this composition! Pose, bridge and phone fit perfectly. And those colors...

Oh that is so unexpected, and arty ! 2 splendid bridges here !
And the police is missing somethin' for sure ;)
Love the grace in her posture ! And the colors too, bravo - to be published in a magazine !

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

Certainly an unexpected vision for this silly Tuesday morning. But it's a fantastic photo; great composition. Plus the lovely Kat lady appears to to be in great shape for her act of contortion on that box.

19 Jan 2010 11:48am

@Viewfinder: A completely professional model in every respect. She is amazing.

Marie LC from Voiron, France

C'est étonnant car je n'ai pas vu ce type de paysage quand je suis allée à Frisco !!! quel dommage ! LOL ! jolie compo Stephen

@Marie LC: Je suis très étonné, Marie. Ce paysage courbe rond est partout vous vous tournez à San Francisco. Comment l'avez-vous manqué ? Il m'a gardé ici pendant quarante ans maintenant!

Laurent from Lyon, France

Tremendous composition. I like how the call box and her body just become an abstraction

OK...Can you read french?
A french word game...police is the homonym of peau lisse wich means sweet skin...Interresting no?

Very, very unique setup for this nude . Love to feel her confidence while being shot naked on the street .
I only hope you were acting as a real, professional photographer, without having any desires ;)) ha ha

Incredible shot Stephen......I didn't get a chance to get out here yesterday, but I made a point of going back one day for a few of my favorite photographers, and boy, am I glad I did!! You are rivaling our buddy Spencer!!!!

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

Great pose, she looks like she just.. deflated there! And I love Kat's shaved head, so very bold of her and natural.

sherri from Little Rock, Arkansas, United States

She must be incredibly strong to hang there as if she's weightless. I don't understand why she's bald though.
