Alternate title: American Darlings. I didn't think anyone would get it though. Link.

Not a huge splash with this, but thick competition indeed. Some great comments though, and, as always, thank you.

I googled "American Darling" and I guess the next time someone calls me that...I shouldn't be flattered at the reference to a hydrant!...;-) What a quick eye you have to catch the matching reds in color and shape!

Her facial expression reminds me of Cruella DeVille so I hope you don't own a dalmatian puppy!

The diagonal lines and the patterns of the cinder block wall add to the dimensional impression in the background increased by the diagonal angle, and gives compositional impact to this image.

Good work, Brian!

Sex life? Ha! Effective composition, and as mentioned, the matching hats are comical and engaging.

Ooh, didn't notice the matching hats! Here is my other comment: "- almost entirely composed of tall thin triangles. something so pointed about that. then we have the red: the red cardinal's hat, the scarf, the long thin triangle coat AND the fire hydrant instead of the missing leg, and a nice black klunker for the shown foot. what a setup, what a getup, and omygod what a face."

it is a miracle.

I think Marla is right, the matching hats make for a stunning couple.

A bizarre couple... for some reason I can't help but wonder about their sex life. Not many photos have that effect on me.
In my top 5 for this challenge.

I think she is my favourite. I think if I had designed her, and placed her, with her one foot, she would look just like this.
