QOTD: As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.
— Henry David Thoreau

Backstory: American cinema owes a tremendous debt to socialist filmmaker George Romero – he wrapped the classic morality tale in a bloody garment, transforming it into a commodity that reaches millions. His story is dressed in a metaphorical robe, dipped in blood.
The materials I used were a styrofoam wig head, acrylic paints, and a stock phrase that translates: “Another year has gone by already.”

Equipment: Nikon D40x / Nikkor 18~55mm f3.5/5.6
