RUNAWAY BRIDE
As she realizes the terrible mistake she was about to make, she's determined to run from the darkness into the uncertainty of her future ..not sure where her decision will take her...or where the road leads to. But she will follow the white line and use it as a guide to move away from the darkness...possibly to a better life...a better place.....another world away from the world she was in before.

Love that movie and the Dixie Chic song, but your image has been added to that of my favorites as well. This is so awesome. I love the mood from the fog and the BW really adds to that. The way the dress was captured is brilliant and you have composed this so very well. Now what I would really like to know. Was this a wedding portrait or something you were doing for fun, and were there a lot of passing cars that looked at you like you were crazy? LOL.....

I value all your comments so very much! Thank you!!

Darren...your post is very appreciated and I am honored that you would add this to your list of favorites. Thank you! No, this was not a wedding portrait. Don't know if I'll ever be able to handle weddings. And there were passing cars that I'm sure thought we were crazy...particularly at 6a.m in the morning on I91S in Vermont!

Greetings Murry! Thanks you!! I am so delighted you approve! In all honesty, I wasn't basing this image on the movie (and I do forget how it ends actuallY)...just a title that I thought sounded catchy. I'll need to watch it again.

THank you K!! My...what wonderful adjectives and a beautiful comment. Thank you so much for taking the time to view my work!

Hello Gaby...I appreciate your confidence in this image. And that compliment is one of the best I've ever had! Along with all the other comments I have received here today! Have a good day!

Monika...It meant alot to me that you recognized this was not a spontaneous shot. You are absolutely correct...photos are alot of work...something always needs adjusting...the model works very hard too depending on what we're after. I tell you, Monika...I really appreciate the professionals now. Very difficult work...

Thank you for your praise of this image. I am honored to receive it from such a bright and skilled photographer!

bill...It is with gratitude and apprection that I accept your complimentary post. Thank you for acknowledging and praising this image. Have a great day!

Hi Judy! Delighted you are back! It's been such a busy time I think for so many of us these past two months. We've been in a different state every weekend for the last two months except this weekend. Glad that you're back! Thank you, Judy...for complimenting this shot! And for your enthusiasm and support on this image. I appreciate that immensely! I was thinking about calling you this week and see if I can pull you away to shoot the Flower Farm...or whatever, I don't care what I shoot really. I finally have a week that I'll be able to find time to do that. Hope it works for you too! Thanks Judy!
