Alice in Wonderland/Pack of Cards

"You're nothing but a pack of cards!"

Unable to remain adapted to Wonderland, Alice finds herself back on the river bank. As I said in an earlier post, I'll be continuing to work on some variations with these. I think I've come up with an idea for a sepia section, which would simply be the actors cutting up in the photographers studio. For one thing, I think the dormouse gets to steal the Hatter's top hat. This coming week I'll be posting randoml bits and pieces and starting the Lost series, hoping to get some photos of little people with city life going on around them.

One of the photographs in Dreaming Alice on Blurb books.

I'll say magic! Way cool picture. I really like the action of it, and her expression (duck!). Given your comment, I expected some "river bank" rather than being indoors, but the picture itself works beautifully. I really really like this!

Very nicely done Susan! Takes one back into the mystical world of fiction and fantasy which is scarce in the present times.Quite nostalgic I would say!
