I'd never seen this image -- it's a stunner. I love the expression on her face as she contemplates her leg!

This sense of casual humor is what I remember most about Farrell's performance in this piece. And it is what I missed in Mearn's performance last week. She pushed too hard and there was no sense of irony.

Great picture, thank you. She looks great. Must have been not long after her return to the company, I'd guess.
