How to Catch a Mermaid

Digital manipulation from original black & white negs. Photoshop 7. Shot at sunrise, red filter, long lens. The tail belongs to a crocidilian long-tom.

This is a siren in the ancient tradition - beautiful but deadly.

I think you captured that so nicely. "beautiful but deadly" Great to admire from afar but killer to the touch or approach. Very lifelike and believable.

Who needs the details? The determination on her face and with every bit the curiosity of a mermaid (or fairy) tells the whole story. Brilliant my dear! Just brilliant.
