    Kerik,

    they are all beautiful. I especially like the fact that these represent that time in their life in which a certain frivolity is so clearly innocent. These capture that perfectly.

    Molly is my favorite as well but those are small margins we are dealing with.

    I on the other hand like yours better than Weston's but then I don't believe things can't be interpreted anew and better in some cases just because it was done by someone else, i.e. famous. If that were the case Ansel wouldn't have been allowed into Yosimite after Watkins.

    Thanks Monty. You are a perceptive dude.

    I didn't even know or remember that Weston did a gas mask girl. It's been a looonng time since I looked at his work.

    Wait, are you saying I'm not famous??? DAMMMIT!

    Yeah, Weston did several shots of Charis nude, wearing just the gas mask. Not his greatest work, IMHO.

    That's because she was disrobed, right?
