Description 'So many elements appeal to the eye in this photograph. I like the black and white theme of what she's wearing with the red as a counterpoint. The red, blue and green are also the colors the captors of our cameras are sensitive to. With the black and white a tip of the hat to black and white photography. And is it by chance that the background is a middle gray? And again, is it by chance that the pink blossom echoes her skin?You have to be a master to layer so much meaning in a photograph others would perceived as that of a sexy girl. And of course she is sexy and beautiful too. That certainly doesn't take anything away from the photo.' Andr Barret
