very special one, beautiful, but in the same way a little bit scary somehow.

edit for spelling.

Half remembered dream... clearly a PH blue. A story so well told.

Reading your other in-challenge comments and your (now viewable) notes; amazing how you managed to communicate with your audience so precisely.

So much like a memory. A thought that is fading with time

my original comment, though demonstrating a close connection and communication with the image, seems distasteful in light of the description above, so I'm removing it.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: There's something about this image that communicates loss, like the attempt of a grieving mind trying to recapture a precious moment. Everything about the image feels tenuous and fragile - think too hard and the image will go, perhaps forever. The technical and artistic choices you've made to conjure this image are remarkable.

Critical stuff: Nothing at all

Overall: Viewing this image is like having my eyes bypassed - the memory of another being planted directly into my mind.

Once she was gone, the memory refused to materialize properly, instead appearing in teasingly vaporous forms.
