This is an entry to the
Delicious Autumn Contest. We were given the following quote from George Eliot as inspiration:“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird, I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”
I was inspired by the "my very soul is wedded to it" part, so I tried to achieve a "bride" feeling with Li Pong, as well as a hint of the harvest, as a nod to the "deliciousness".
But I also had another inspiration for these pictures:
When I was in Elementary School, we had prints of the Four Seasons allegories by Giuseppe Arcimboldo on the wall. I loved those pictures, all those tiny details and the creativity! This photoshoot was also inspired by his works.
Everything in Li Pong's hair grew on trees and bushes. No plastic apples, or fake berries
