Back to people. It’s always back to people. The default setting.

Sometimes it’s people mediated through the eyes of another. The head at the top is a figure from a 19th century painting by Isidore Pils. Something about the look, the depiction of the skull under the skin. Did he ever really exist in the first place? Was he a western artist’s vision of the archetypal oriental?

Then back to real life and a snatched 60 seconds (that’s all I ever get) of Middle Daughter engrossed in a book.

The challenge is always: what can I do in 60 seconds in terms of line to capture that particular look?
