Ben Jonson (1572-1637), English poet and playwright, regarded as the second most important dramatist, after William Shakespeare, during the reign of James I~ PERFECT BEAUTY It was a beauty that I saw, So pure, so perfect, as the frame Of all the universe was lame, To that one figure, could I draw, Or give least line of it a law! A skein of silk without a knot, A fair march made without a halt, A curious form without a fault, A printed book without a blot, All beauty, and without a spot!

"Know what makes this photo pop (besides its gorgeous subject)? Someone on Tom's right took a flash photo at the exact same moment this photo was taken from the front. That's the white light you see on Tom's right cheekbone. It separates him from the background and, of course, makes his cheekbones even more distinctive. It's not often you luck out like that, as a photographer. I photographed hundreds of weddings and thousands of portraits, and only had this happen about 10 times."
