Photo Thursday

One of my favourite paintings is Ophelia, by british artist John Everett Millais. It depicts the scene right before the drowning of this character from Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. Though it’s not the only painting in which Ophelia has been featured, it’s -at least in MY world – the most known representation of Prince Hamlet’s sweetheart.
The following are some links to photographs inspired by the character found in flickr. I’m even thinking of making my own version :P.

    I love this image, her fingers lightly touch and her hands fall to a position after tearing something delicate in two – her heart. I wrote a poem inspired by her on my website. See what you think…
