I like it. It's mysterious.

I really like how the color in each ppicture compliments the other.
But I don't understand why you would pair the wood with her face.
I think the little girl's picture could stand alone very well.

It's somewhat conceptual. The title "you're better off believing" is from a song by Taking back Sunday, and the line continues to say "you're better off believing everything you heard was true". The fence is painted red and reminded me of blood and has nails sticking out of it. All in all, it's about the corruption of innocence and how the girl is young and ignorant of the dangers of everything around here.

Thanks for viewing though :)

Is that an old song?

Nope, around 2006 or something. Not old really, limited release though from the Louder Now album by Taking Back Sunday (my favorite band by the way).
