Daily Deviation

Given 2014-01-23
Untitled #1 by *mangawhio The clever use of black and white creates a reference between the postbox and the woman's clothes. Humorous and brilliant image. ( Featured by myraincheck )

Thanks for your comments here and on Facebook.  

Sometimes you can get yourself into a position where things will come out right, and well, usually they don't.  I was so happy she gave me the "eye" at the critical monent.

our freedom is stop in the freedom of others , she choose to cover her body like others choose to be nude , don't judge people Mngawhio , and it ll be nice shoot if u changed its title , because no one know the personality of her , like you don't know that box has , maybe she is a great person with a great personality , the same with the postbox may it steal but it has a nice poem or a green papers in it, any way nice shoot

Judge people?  
There is no judgement implied here.  If you check the comments, you will see that two of them are from Muslim women.  They were not offended - I'm sorry if you were.

Change the title?
How can I?  It is untitled.

This is a light-hearted shot showing a reflection between the two subjects, but thank you for your opinion.

Hahaha. I am a Muslim & to me both of them look similar............almost.

I wonder what would happen if you posted a letter through her??

probably a sandle or purse to the head ?!!

I don't think she appreciated me taking the picture, but she said nothing and I pretended to be more interested in the letterbox.
Thank you for your comments. Thanks for everything!

Lol this is cute! It's so convenient that she's almost looking at the post box too. Although, i wish she would be a little neater..... the hijab and niqaab are both so beautiful when worn with elegance! I'm sure she's a lovely woman but, floral on floral...............? Maybe it was a rushed morning... :) Ok that's terrible of me i'll just stop nowOops! ...considering i combine my hijab with my Star Wars T-shirts.......Sweating a little... But anyway, clever shot!

Thanks for your amusing comments ("i combine my hijab with my Star Wars T-shirts.....") :rofl 

Don't know about women's fashions, but I'm so relieved you are not offended by this.  
I hope you're aware that Palestine's cause has a lot of support in my part of the world.

Lol you're welcome!

Not offended at all dearie, some might be but there's really no reason, i know you meant no harm by it. :) And it is funny!

Really?! I actually didn't know that but i'm glad to hear it! I know people generally associate Palestine with Muslims but i wish they knew how many innocent Christians and Jews are being persecuted in there.... religion should not be considered in humanitarian matters, you know? :) I'm no activist, but i sincerely wish that all suffering will end, be it from war, poverty or natural disaster... in Palestine, Burma, Tibet, even here in South Africa where many go hungry and subtle racial tension taints the atmosphere.......

 But anyway, I'm gonna stop before i get carried away, i don't want to ruin your witty deviation with politics! :D  Sorry about the minor essay...Sweating a little... 

(Here's a watch for the pro-Pal vibes and super polite and sensitive demeanor though! ;) )

Hope Christchurch is finished with all its shaking, I was down there twice in the last year.
