Just made a connection . . .

Something about this picture from Halloween looked familiar when I first saw it. I think I just put it together:Diane Arbus is not my favorite, but you can't always choose your influences, I suppose.

is it really so much an influence as it is simply J's pose?

that is, don't feel bad if you think it's influenced by a photographer you don't like.

Ah, but the question is why did snap that picture with her standing in that pose? At some unconscious level was I trying to make my own derivative version of the famous kid with grenade picture? I'll never know.

Actually, I think it's just a funny coincidence.
