Given 2008-08-14

To me, as an old man, this is the predicament of youth. The false crown and party hat, the beauty, the angst.

I adore this so much! :) And it led to me nicknaming a friend of mine "Little king" :)

See the king as he slowly descend in to madness with the sins that no man or woman must know for if they did their ears' would explode and their eyes' melt into the ground and their screams...

Great portrait,
I see no problem with the posing,
staging,
or overall.

NOooo! You ruined the best part about being king of the world! You're supposed to be able to be naked except for your crown, crying in your flower chair, without anyone seeing....!

That little crown on your head is just awesome. It's like an extremely cheap version of the burger king crowns.

Fantastic photo. I love the posing and light. It's like your the emperor without your clothes, only your body language clearly states that you know you were conned.
