Triage by sweetgreychaos Triage by sweetgreychaos
Too many things were happening all at once, too many things she couldn't control. Claudie didn't feel them like a weight- nothing so cliche as something pressing down on her, or holding her down. Instead, she woke up in the middle of the night and said to him, "My chest... there's a black chunk in my chest, and I can't breathe around it."

Of course Claudie could breathe. She was speaking. But the breaths were ragged and ugly, filled with the bacteria of anxiety that sprang from that poisoned lump. When she woke up, she almost forgot about it all- but he wouldn't let her. He made her look at it in the light.

***

So many weird little things happened with this picture!! I swear to everything that is holy that there is NO blue in this image. It's all green and yellow... and yet... poof, I take a picture next to the window while holding a red/yellow lamp up, and BOOM. The green is gone.

This picture needed little to nothing- it was a rare and wonderful shot that I could hardly believe was one of the first ones taken. That is almost never the case in my photos. Consequently, I love this- and yet, I don't understand it one bit. :heart:

(PS- the inspiration for this is that several of my animals are sick all at once, and I feel more than a little helpless. Doin' what I can.)

Do you like it better with the original green or the blue?

The green! Mostly because I already did a blue/yellow based eye makeup this year.

Lighting is such a wonderful and difficult thing to work with. Love your eyes in this one as well as the subtle fade to shadow thing going on...

isn't amazing how much lighting can change colors of something

Yes!! It was truly bizarre- most of the pics I took, the green was really obvious. Only in a few by the window did they look unmistakably blue. Oddo.
