Hypnotic Poison / 11 Mar 05

Hypnotic Poison / 11 Mar 05

Christian Dior


Desert Rose by Sting

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams that tie two hearts that will never die
And near the flames
The shadows play in the shape of the man’s desire

This desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

And now she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing’s as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
The rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Whose shadow bears the secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume that would torture you more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of hidden hearts and souls
This desert flower
This rare perfurme is the sweet intoxication of love

Very sensual ... coquettish!

Wonderful mysterious, kind of 40's feel to this photo. I especially like the contrast of the white cover and the red bottle. Great job!
Guest 12-Mar-2005 18:42

Absolutely wonderful shot, Susanne. Well done indeed!
John Nasche11-Mar-2005 12:43
A beautiful image Susanne, ... but a touch too much Gaussian blur in Photo Shop or unfocused on the camera IMHO. I would prefer to see the Gaussian blur used as shown, but with they eyes in absolute razor sharp focus for the contrast and the “hypnotic” effect you are trying for.
Guest 11-Mar-2005 10:11
Many thanks that you are sharing such a nice picture, well done

Susanne, way to go, this is a beautiful portrait of you! I might crop a bit off the right, but otherwise, I think this is perfect. Your pose, outfilt and the red rose(?) all works so well! Bravo!
