MONIA MERLO, mmm....

Love at first sight

- Monia Merlo's photography

takes my breath away... 

Ethereal and poetic,

with her water shots conjuring visions

of Tennyson's Lady of Shalott

(which I find one cannot quietly read inside one's head,

but has to be read aloud.

And that in turn has me thinking 

my childhood heroine...).

These images are from Monia Merlo's portfolio

(these were just skimming the surface),

and you can also follow her

on Instagram and Flickr.

Wishing you a lovely weekend,

Thank you for sharing this artist's photography, stunning, Lady of Shallot is one of my favorite poems. Anne of Green Gables was my hero too.

Images that go right to the soul <3

Ha, have to confess that I first
misspelt her name as Merlot
- Freudian slip me thinks :)
Hope you're well dear michele!

Rebecca Skye Watson said...

Well I just love the fact that you did
a Lady of Shalott -inspired shoot!!
Maybe you'll find the perfect muse
who will trust the water sooner or later :)
Take care, x

I've come to notice that anyone who has a thing for Anne Shirley
is a kindred spirit!
She planted the love for that poem in me, too, as a young girl,
and I then ended up analysing it to bits at university quite some years later.
I think it's about time to re-read it now.
