Lady in Red...

I just had to post up this fantastic photograph of Audrey Hepburn by the Photographer Bob Willoughby. As you've probably guessed by now I'm a fan of images that contain striking contrasts, and this is not the first time I've posted a picture where a figure in red is set against a natural, green background (see this post).

This one is part of a set that Willoughby took of Audrey Hepburn and is my favourite due to the pose and composition.

You're Next....

As part of my bibliophile activities that I talked about in my earlier "War of The Worlds" post, I have just documented the anthology book "The Bedside Book of Horror" edited by Herbert van Thal (yes, he of Pan books of horror fame).
I thought I would post it on here as it reminded me of the imagery that is used in the recent Horror/Home Invasion movie "You're Next" by Adam Wingard.
There's just something about people in animal masks that used out of any specific context can really create a sense of unease, something obviously understood by Mr Wingard and the Artist behind this cover.
