It's not often that I go out of town to shoot but this time I went to the borders of the metro to shoot Akiko.

As all plans go most of them went awry when I got there, a lack of a proper location, to the sheer heat yet somehow all difficulties were surmounted and all expectations exceeded.

Serene and unwilting under the sun's stern gaze Akiko reminded me of the flower mentioned in Milton's verses.

Immortal amarant, a flower which once
In paradise, fast by the tree of life,
Began to bloom; but soon for man's offence
To heaven removed, where first it grew, there grows,

This is Amaranth's Child.
