Lady in red  

Chris De Burgh

 I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight

I’ve never seen you shine so bright

I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance

They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance

And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing

Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes

I have been blind

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek

There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me

It’s where I want to be

But I hardly know this beauty by my side

I’ll never forget the way you look tonight

I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight

I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing

I’ve never seen so many people want to be there by your side

And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away

And I have never had such a feeling

Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

The lady in red is dancing with me….


  1. The tone of this ‘poem’ is sensuous, romantic. A man sees a beautiful woman at a party wearing a red dress, and he is captivated by her. Others try to get a dance with her and finally she turns to him and wants to dance with him, which takes his breath away.
  2. The audience of both approaches are couples, lovers and anyone stung by love.
  3. Both designs are literal, showing images of red and roses, both of which signify love and desire.
  4. Because love of this kind is aimed at couples, people, I chose to have a model for one of the images. Two similar pictures with the same model may be redundant so I choose a still life for the second picture, focusing on the subtle contours of a rose.
  5. I used my sister as the model.
  6. The second photo, I used a rose as the subject. This is the same rose that the model is holding in the first photo to give some continuity to both photos.
  7. I used a strobe light to enhance the contrast of the image, on top of regular 75W white house lighting.
  8. I used a lot of contrast, light and dark, because love is mysterious and sensual. The photo of the rose only needs to focus on the contours of the rose, so I used a shallow depth of field. I also placed the rose atop a mirror to give some duality to the image in its reflection. This is similar to how love requires a duality of two lovers.

social media addiction

this article is about the social media addiction, today everyone using Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. They check their phone every couple minutes but they don’t even know why they check it. you open see a group of people hangout and everyone has a phone in their hand. It happens in my family too, my dad always text me instead of come to my room and talk to me. It can destroy your life when you get addict.

photo idea: a couple having dinner, and the guy checking FB instead of talk to her girlfriend.



what is the point of college?

what is the point of college utility U or utopia U? Utility U is how college can be useful to its graduates and employer. Utopia U is experiments in living, aimed at getting student ready for life as free man and woman.

A idea of photos for utility u and utopia u I want to try the front  and a back of a person  which is to show the utility u and utopia u. for utility u the place will be a conner of the campus the lighting will be dark the person is kind upset and down and utopia u will sitting in the front of the school and smiling and cruise.

another idea will be the one person standing in the campus and the other photo will be standing outside of the campus.
