a good snapshot stops a moment from running away.

One great photograph can stop you in your tracks. That is how I felt when I came across this photo - something about it resonated with me. I just can't stop looking at it.


This photograph exudes strength.

There is a bold kind of strength in her expression, where she is almost daring the viewer to follow. I love the extension of the arm and leg, so confident. There is just something about this photograph that is completely arresting.

Are you as taken by this shot as I am?

  18. I completely agree, a good photo will just make you stop. Sometimes I feel like that's what is so lacking in magazines lately. Nowadays I never seem to see editorials in mags that are truly just beautiful photography

  23. It's such a gorgeous photo and I love how she is dressed up but there is a beachy background. Like maybe she's not supposed to be there or something.

  25. I agree, I think it has to do with her body position, and just how energized those lines are, and the cross of her legs. So cool!

  28. She looks so strong and in charge and I love it! I kind of have a girl crush on her right now haha. I love pictures that show women as stong and independant as opposed to the ones where they're trying to have the girls look sexy or innocent. Great pic choice Shannon xx
