The Last Temptation Of Ophelia by GothicNarcissus The Last Temptation Of Ophelia by GothicNarcissus
This flesh holds me captive
And in quest of liberation.
As the sheep flock in the dissonance,
I tread in dissent
To the piercing light that sears our hearts,
To the sickness that plagues our spirits.
I cannot revere in this blind acceptance
And falter in my comprehension.


[ Through Infectious Waters (A Sickness Elegy) – Draconian ]

BriarRose had the idea for some Ophelia-inspired photos thanks to that little waterstream. Although it was me to come up with the title for this one, this is mostly her idea. I like the outcome, and it was fun to work with my model’s ideas. ;)
Taken in the Giardino Roccioso (Rocky Garden), Parco del Valentino, Turin.

unless you've done it on purpose, this image is too light, which shows most easily on the model's skin and the surrounding grass and the model's dress.
also, a little less blue in the image would improve it.

hope this helps. :-)

Faceva freddino, e poi dovevamo girare un po' per Torino, quindi direi che non era il caso. XD
