I guess the beauty really is in the eye of beholder. To me it is a beautiful effort of somebody to give something to someone which otherwise probably could never be afforded. Much more valuable and, yes, more beautiful, than any Barbie or Bratz doll.
I originally shot this one for mostly montone for all the shades of green, but Oscar looks like he is just zoning out looking out the front door so I'll use this one for Meditative....just minutes earlier, he was "hunting" fish in the aquarium, by slapping at the glass. Thanks to Color Efex for allowing me to pull detail out of the blownout outdoors and the deep shadows in the aquarium. View attachment 73322 Oscar looking outside by Lukinosity, on Flickr
