I sense a slightly more complex image to construct than some, Linda - 5 objects including the woman, placed meticulously in the surrounds which themselves comprise 3 layers, the bottom one of Shanghai itself has been startlingly enlarged and coloured to a dramatic night  effect. The woman in white (Ah - Wilkie Collins eat your heart out!) completes the title. My immediate feeling is that the image reminds me of an Edward Hopper night image but his images were to do with loneliness in the big city, and I'm not sure this woman is lonely. As is often the case, you create an enigma for the viewer - is the woman waiting for someone and if so in what context? The "Emmanuelle" chair is suggestive of an amorous liaison, but perhaps not.

Oh wow thanks for that link, David! It was instant love!  I never heard of him but his work is amazing! I could even see why my piece here brought him to mind for you. I am delighted to be compared. :woohoo:  (I'll have to look up Wilkie Collins too, now I'm curious :) ^^ )
I adore "Automat" and "Chop Suey" Just wonderful! :heart:

I was trying to create a certain 'mood' here; not necessarily lonely, per se; but her definitely missing someone (far away); her being all dressed up and nowhere to go...That kind of atmosphere. I think I succeeded. ^^

"Haunting". I like that! :heart:  Thank you, as always David, for your thoughtful input! :hug:!!

"All dressed up and nowhere to go." That's an old one for me, Linda. That was a common expression in my boyhood - possibly because after the War, people started to have small amounts of money and could buy "good" clothes. But, social opportunities had not kept pace - going to the "pictures" (cinema) still being the main night out for most people.

Going to the movies, still really is one of my favorite things; but I can't do it as 'others', and their noise, make it impossible to enjoy.  And with the crazy cost of admittance now days, I rather just wait for it to come on Netflix....Especially if the show is something fairly cerebral; hard to get into in such an environment..... I remember hearing that saying a lot too, in my youth; never knew where it originated from though.  :)  ^^

Agreed - too much noise in movie venues and too expensive.
