So fabulous! I am reminded too of an old character actor (not old in his movies, but the movies were old) from black and whites from long ago.

Celeste! Did you "smuggle" some blue into this?

It has a dramatic effect!

The composition makes it.

Your labeling is hilarious.

Bonjour,
Je suis heureuse de vous retrouver...
Un travail qui ne doit pas être très simple... L'utilisation du noir...
J'aime ce profile au regard profond.
Bises à bientôt,

Hi Celeste! This is so weird and wonderful. Like Knucklehead Smith in some horror flick! Very cool!
