"Piece Seven"

EMBRACEABLE YOU (Billie Holiday)

Written by: George and Ira Gershwin

Embrace me
My sweet embraceable you
Embrace me
My irreplaceable you
Just to look at you
My heart grows tipsy in me
You and you alone

Bring out the gypsy in me

I love all
The many charms about you
Above all
I want my arms about you
Donít be naughty baby
Come to me
Come to me do
My sweet embraceable you

Thanks for the feedback this week.

own gallery. Oh BTW... It's also

Ok, so here I am....again. I could hide the fact that this is by far my favorite pbase image ever, but I won't. I am drawn to this like a moth to a flame.... so, here I am...again.

You know I love it. Just promise me to keep this embrace just like this forever and ever....

I am sure I will be back again before long...

So well done. This image conveys emotion... a touching shot that holds me captive. The conversion to B&W is perfect because it draws my full attention to the contentment on your face. My compliments and my vote.

Totally gorgeous - great work :)
Guest 02-Aug-2005 15:57
OMG even BETTER because it's YOU. Makes it even better. wow
Guest 02-Aug-2005 15:55
I stared at this the other night, and I just scrolled down to see if I commented, and I didn't. I suppose that shows the effect it had. I LOVE this beautiful image. I LOVE the way he holds her from behind, it just is gorgeous. The emotion you can feel from it is what i love the most, I simply love images that can make you FEEL. Not to mention that it's technically fantastic.

Guest 02-Aug-2005 03:50
Wonderful skintones, textures, and lighting. Her gaze and those catchlights are hypnotic. A very strong composition, too. Above all, you executed this concept in a very touching way. The clasp of your hands is perfect. While it may be possible to read the sensual side of romance in this image, I come away reading comfort, devotion, and connection. Just one viewer's perception. Well done.
