member since: 5/3/2007 Great capture and framing, Ray. These people are amazingly disciplined. Did you ever try to be perfectly still for even five minutes? You just HAVE to scratch your nose!

It is amazing how they can tune every thing out. To remain motionless for such a long time. #9430961

Love that pose, Ray, and the black background is perfect for contrast with her pale features and white clothes. No real surprise this made it to the finals.
(I hope the Mime laughs to herself as she poses, while idiots try to "break" her, as they do the guards at Buckingham Palace. Nitwits!) #9488024

A closer look at the Mime posted yesterday. I was amazed at her ability to ignore everyone who came near here trying to distract her.
An amazing ability!
