Oh, Pearl, you warm my little old heart. You will find in the comments of many people above that they, too, found in it a picture of lovers not "lusters."

I just adore the way it came out, technically and in terms of mood. I do give full credit to the woman in the picture and the way the phtographer captured her. So many of the women's faces in the paintings I've used for the manips I've made have been less than convincing as the faces of lovers. The men's haven't been much better, but those were replaced with Frodo's, happily. Think of the worst one for poor facial expressions, the "Bacchus and Ariadne" by Guido Reni. I mean, it was a beautiful manip and was great for making up funny captions to, but which viewer could believe in the amorous feelings of either of them? That such an Ariadne swooned for Bacchus, or that such a Bacchus would have married her, a mortal, and made her a crown in heaven? None, I dare say.

But the woman's face in this picture is a picture of someone who loves and yearns and adores with all her soul. How could I not search and search for a Frodo face to deserve such love?
