gorgeous Rasta sista

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, yet I suddenly
fell in love with this self-portrait titled 'Rasta Daughter'
in which the sheer beauty of black & white meets 
the enchanting countenance of Selwane Evodia Melamu
(Eva) who took the amazing picture in her 
hometown Johannesburg, South Africa.
”In my Rastafarian culture, females are known as queens,
and the image I took represents me as a bust of the Queen
 
Nefertiti in Egypt” she wrote in a caption on her photo 
that has been short-listed for the Smithsonian Magazine's
10th annual photo contest. Editors are about to choose
the winners in each of five categories as well as a Grand
Prize Winner but we can still vote for the Reader's Choice
winner (voting will be open through Friday the 29th) 
and I'm quite eager to support her stunning take 
on the proverbial beauty of Nefertiti. Sterkte!
