PDS Posted July 24, 2011 Share Posted July 24, 2011 With that said, I don't care for JMS' black beatnik cap, and sense in Ms. McElroy's picture profound angst.You have a point there. And Neil smiles too much and Wendy not enough. Bad choices.I made an interesting psychological experience when studying the two pictures. Since we happen to know a lot of private info about those two individuals, I find it very difficult to be objective in looking at the pictures, i. e. what I personally associate with both Wendy and Neil strongly flows into my interpretation of their facial expressions. Since I never perceived Wendy as having much angst (I see her as an extreme risk taker not afraid to transgress boundaries), I find it difficult to detect angst in her expression. Wariness and distrust, yes. Also hardness, and an attitude of calculation by someone who does not want to put her cards on the table. But like I said, it is all colored by what I personally connote with Wendy. (The bitterness I also "see" in Wendy's face is not influenced by what I have read about her though). The same goes for Neil: "ebullient", "wears his heart on his sleeve", "a good hearted-guy, but very impulsive and too trusting", "not having enpough inner distance to his own experience" - again, all that I connote with Neil flows into my interpretation of his photo.Ms. Xray: you realize that everything I have said about their pictures is/was a tongue-in-cheek effort to poke at Greybird's preemptive lecture about going off topic, right?
