    Really like all the pictures. It’s like getting a backstage pass into Shera’s world. Fav is the mirror stare. Last one takes it full circle.

    I understand that it might not be wise to write a “One of the one per cent in 13 million” type of article on the individual playing Shera at this time. But it would be nice to know who the young man is and how he got the job.

    Nice wall posters in the last pic – but just look at the open filth and muck in front of it – not counting the desecration about to be visited upon it!
