The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it: `No room! No room!’ they cried out when they saw Alice coming. `There’s PLENTY of room!’ said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table.
`Have some wine,’ the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.
Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. `I don’t see any wine,’ she remarked.
`There isn’t any,’ said the March Hare.
`Then it wasn’t very civil of you to offer it,’ said Alice angrily.
`It wasn’t very civil of you to sit down without being invited,’ said the March Hare.
`I didn’t know it was YOUR table,’ said Alice; `it’s laid for a great many more than three.’
I thought I would talk a bit about my process on where my brain was going in this photo. I wanted the Red Queen to be sort of welcoming Alice into her forest area where the rocking horse flies were coming out around here, over grown mushrooms and this way or that way trees in the back. Instead of actual playing card guards it’s more of a book cut out morbid type of thing.
I wanted it to be ‘dark’, but not so dark to where it’s like twisted Alice type deal here. Like some sort of soft line of Dark and Light. So this is what I came up with. I’m pretty proud of the photo after my first attempt which was horrible! My friends were like Eww when I showed them the photo, so this was a better attempt and I must say that I love this one over the first one.
After a year had passed the king took to himself another wife. She was a beautiful woman, but proud and haughty, and she could not bear that anyone else chould surpass her in beauty. She had a wonderful looking-glass, and when she stood in front of it and looked at herself in it, and said,
- “Looking-glass, looking-glass, on the wall,
- Who in this land is the fairest of all?”
The looking-glass answered,
- “Thou, o queen, art the fairest of all.”
Then she was satisfied, for she knew that the looking-glass spoke the truth.
