So is it just me . . .  
. . . or does the woman in this picture look like she's lying in a pool of blood?


Note: Pic is not graphic, or anyway not meant to be, but it has, to me, some weird overtones.



If the picture isn't there, try this link: http://pics.livejournal.com/janetmiles/pic/0002d8aw/ .

Well, what I suspect was *intended* to be a shadow on the cushion *does* look more like a pool of blood. Also, I don't see *anybody* assuming that position naturally. Though I can't aquite see a corpse staying in it either.

I think it *was* intended to be a shadow. But the position, the color, the spatters -- I'm half tempted to send it off to Sociological Images, which has a sort of ongoing feature about dead-seeming women in advertising.

Do that -- I'd be interested in hearing what they have to say.

Personally, I don't get "pool of blood", but I do agree that the rose petals are Unfortunate and look more like blood-splatter.

Yes, this. I definitely saw the seeming-pool-of-blood and blood-spattered-wedding-dress effect as soon as the picture loaded.
