    My sisters and I used to hang over the edge of the bed in just this way, our hair dangling. We all bring our own emotional associations to any photo, don’t we? But of course it’s the echo of the doll, punctuating the glowing bed, that adds an extra fun twist.

    I too used to hang over my parents bed like this also. Feels like I'm looking at myself, as strange as that sounds:)  I agree w/the editor, yes we all do bring our own emotional associations w/it. What a fun shot, thanks for the memories:) ...oh and great job!

    Fantastic shot, Rita. I'm keen to know: was the pose planned or just spontaneous?.
