Daily Deviation

Given 2013-07-02
Insomnia by *PaulaMCollins The lens-baby effect along with the writing INSOMNIA and the introspective look of the girl, give a floating, fanciful feeling to this image. ( Suggested by Miguel-Santos and Featured by myraincheck )

It's not easy to combine artistic tools with street photography. But you've managed to capture a candid moment of a girl, apparently caught between worlds, in a perfectly composed shot, and then take advantage of the lensbaby to enhance that feeling with great style. Excellent. :clap:

Congratulations on the feature today, Paula. It is well deserved. Enjoy it. :)
