“Desert Daze” by Catherine Lenz

“This is a very dark and mysterious image...and I really like the effect. I say this because of three things I see in the overall image. The first thing I noticed when I looked at the photo was the young woman on the left of the image. A flower covers her left eye...why? Next, the two women are not in the horizontal middle of the frame as most of us would expect in a two-up image, but instead they are pressed to the left of the image...why? Finally, the third issue is the cloud structure behind and between the two women which has the look of a nuclear explosion in the distance. The mystery is unanswered in this image which leaves the viewer wondering...why?”
