This beautiful shot is from the film Never Let Me Go. I love the look of the shot-
I have actually never seen Never Let Me Go but I love the book by Kazuo Ishiguro. The book in some ways inspired the title for my blog. Not sure why I never saw the film, maybe it’s because I was apprehensive because the book is so special to me.
But I love that shot, I even modeled a shot from my camera tests after it-

Maybe it's time to see the film : )
Incidentally it was the photo on the cover of the book that inspired me to read Never Let Me Go
The photo on the cover is by Mervyn O'Gorman taken in 1912. O'Gorman was an aeronautical engineer and Colonel in the British Army. Photography was a hobby of his and he made a beautiful series of photos of his daughter Christina on autochrome.
