  3. Junksy,
    but that's how we feel, isn't it? ;-)

    Wandring Star,
    the wonderful person behind the mask was so sweet to cooperate, turning the way I asked her. And that in the frigid dunk morning!

  12. Oh you reposted!
    Hmmm...if I had known!!

    These pictures...they are very powerful and provocative!
    The masks and the costumes...
    These pictures remind me of this popular Chinese epic tale - Farewell, My Concubine.
