    Beautiful pictures and so imaginative. Also love how there’s so much more to see than what is immediately apparent.

    I am in love with your hair….

    The image through the glass table is amazing….

    and the suggestion of two-way action holds so many possible meanings….

    Brilliant

    Beautiful pictures!!!! I love the first image it made me look a bit closer. Very interesting!!!! Xxx

      Thank you! I do like the way that one is pulling people to look closer.

    Both images are gorgeous but the first is my favourite. So clever, erotic and captured perfectly.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! Word chosen by my talented Daddy.

  20. HappyComeLucky says:

    Love the colours and the way the image through the glass is reminiscent of looking into the water. The complexity of that image with the relaxed beauty of the second. A great pairing.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! That’s exactly what I was going for.

  21. TheSinDoll says:

    Your fingers on the table really grab me and take me through that picture. So creative.

    1. Harper Eliot says:

      Thank you! I confess, I’m really happy with the reflected fingers.

  22. Mia says:

    Both are utterly gorgeous pictures, the first however grabs me to look further and deeper. Brilliant interpretation of “Janus” also!

    The reflections combined with seeing through the glass in the first image is beautiful, and I love the lighting in the 2nd; gorgeous!
