And, Peter, what this made me feel was that particular openness to the world when you've closed off sight and are listening with your other senses.

Thanks all. Off in oregon and grateful to find so many responses and opinions. This is a boy, actually, and a small piece of a large photo. When I get home I will post the original.

it is about listening, receptivity, calm, tabula rasa, the ready formlessness of youth, the lack of preconception. for me this is the purest form of love.

I composed a long comment about how I prefer the original to Doug's crop.  I like Doug's crop for reasons of symmetry measure, but the original, with that lighted fall of hair which Jen pointed out, has such a pleasing down pull to counter and anchor the upward outward gaze. Possibly my reasons are hogwash, but still I want to say that the eye often knows way more than the reason; over some of my many years I have learned to be suspicious of my own pp cropping, although who knows what that clever Avril may have already done in pp.
