Mystery Photo

Daily Photo – Mystery Photo

Okay, this time I’ll give you guys a nearly impossible mystery. Who is this girl?

Here’s a bit of context. So, I stayed at Camp Walter at Burning Man with a nice group of people. One night, we all lit torches and went out with about 50 people as an Angry Mob. We walked up and down the streets and were angry about things. It was ridiculous and fun. This girl joined us, but she was not part of Camp Walter. She rode a bike and waved the torch in the air. I grabbed then when she sped by me.

There was only one light, from her torch that she held while she rode by on a bike at full speed.  I remember that the flame made a sound.  It was the close sound of a small sail catching wind.  It would muffle itself, then catch wind again.  The gentle rumble of the flame reached a crescendo as she passed.  I thought it lit her face so nicely, and her mask was so mysterious.  I have no idea who she was, and she probably didn’t want anyone to know who she was.  That was very nice in a world without secrets, I thought.

    “We walked up and down the streets and were angry about things…” — This sounds VERY therapeutic! ;-)

    Fantastic capture. Though I love your HDR work, these images you create, with such a soft, warm feel, really get me. Well done Mr. Ratcliff.

    Great picture Trey. The bokeh of the lights in the background work really well in this image.

    My first thought was Lisa B., too.

  • Jim T

    did she try to kick you in the _ _ _ _ as she passed? If so it might have been my ex.

  • Aaron N

    Great pic Trey! It’s probably a long shot but those eyes look like the girl who played Victoria on How I Met Your Mother. I think her name is Ashley Williams maybe…

  • Will L

    C’mon, Trey – time’s up! Who is she?

    Well, I think that there has been time enough :)
    If she,s not Lisa Bettany, I guess that she must be unknown for most of us (not Jolie, definetly), so I really hope that you will reveal the mistery
    She looks quite like an old (not too old) girlfriend of mine, but … no, I think that this would be quite unrealistic :))

    She looks like Thomas Hawk to me.
    That meaty shoulder. Gave it away.

    That’s easy, she’s Spiro Agnew’s grand-daughter.
