And Then They Made Her Queen of Their World

One of my favorite recent pictures of Athena. Notice the levitation. Boy, those alien tractor ray beams really do work!

Uh, John, it looks like the aliens are stealing one of your clones. Hopefully it's the murderous, axe-wielding one.

They're not stealing her. They're just taking her back to fix her. Because she's not supposed be weilding axes until she's at least 11.

I still can't get over that front yard...

That shot reminds me of a scene from the animé film "Akira" (first US hit for Katsuhiro Otomo). The governments super-secret death ray satelite locks onto a key character- everything turns blue and he starts to levitate (you know, just before all hell breaks loose).

I'd love to see a photoshop of this pic. A little blue-cast lighting and show some other things floating within the beam...sort of as an homage to the film.

It looks like she's sneezing ;-)
Man, you're having *way* too much fun with that camera.

[:: is jealous ::]

I am having too much fun with the camera. And glad of it. If I was just "eh," I'd definitely be kicking myself for spending so much damn money on the thing.

I call it "Athira"


Sorry. Long time lurker.

Being poor is when you have to marry an ugly man from another country, who maybe beats you, only to survive....

Dane | October 7, 2005 09:29 PM

Ask and it shall be done...thank you David "The Long-time Lurker" Loomis.

David Loomis | October 7, 2005 10:26 PM

You're welcome. Your wish is my suggestion.
