Lull it to sleep

I'll keep it in a hidden place (...)"

I love this piece! I feel like I have been transported back into a time of masquerades and nomadic traveling. I feel like there is a story behind this lonely mask. Was it dropped by a member of a traveling theater group? Was there a masked hero, lost in an unfortunate sword fight? How long ago, how many sweltering suns cracked the ground beneath this mask? So many imaginative possibilities, so many emotions!

That said, I wonder if maybe the mask should have experienced more weather, had it been left some time ago, or some wear and tear if it had fallen in a battle. Or was it gently left there, a symbol of a shed identity? While this feels almost perfect, I wonder if maybe I'm missing something from the story.

Part of me wants to see more color in the background, but more of me likes it as is. The blues are just beautiful.

What an amazing photograph! I absolutely love the setting you picked out. It really complements the mask and lets it stand out. Also, the use of the blur to make a circle of light around the mask really grabs my attention. Amazing work here :)

Great spot lighting. Feels as the lighting from a play, which amplifies the power and effect of the prop.
