Girl With Bird's Nest

A suitable image for Easter you may think, but not so, this image is in fact about the body clock most women hear ticking away in their heads. I think women are more aware of their own bodies and also of the fact that their child bearing years are only for so long and that at a certain age having a child may be difficult if not impossible.

This is not to say that all women want children, but even just the possibility of still being able to have them if you want them. Hence the nest, which sits squarely on her head with the eggs prominently displayed the same way the idea of maybe having children one day is squarely in many women's heads.

However, nowadays having children also has become a 'fashion accessory', which is why the nest is shown like a chic little hat and why I've chosen a fashion style portrait for the model. Having children, self esteem and career are all intertwined if you are a woman. Having children often means a break if not a stop to a career, which changes your view of yourself. Suddenly, after being a woman with her own career and own 'life' you become a mother and nurturer, which changes relationships and your view on life.

The pocket watches symbolise the body clock ticking away inside...

Very well done and with just the 'right' emotion!

Excellent. You certainly have an eye for story telling.
