I am very taken with #1 and #5! Both are quirky and unusual. I like the negative space and reflection in #1 (3:43 PM), and I feel that turning #5 on its side is genius. Very creative, out-of-the-box. :thumbup: (Y)

Thanks Chuck. I have to admit, however, that #5 was a happy accident. I meant to click on the photo and accidentally clicked on the arrow for flipping the photo 90 degrees. When I saw it, I thought it was cool so I kept it. I should have noted that in the post but wanted to wait to get reactions. Want see the original?

3:43 is my favorite of all the photos from that shoot. Wish I had taken more in that style. If I go back, I may try some more with greater inclusion of the mirror; might be really whimsical ..

Am still working my way through '17 b&w photos for the final selection for the book. As Minnie has suggested, I am trolling through all of them in the hope that I may find some jewels that time and distance have allowed me some objectivity .. I'll let you know when I am ready to send to Mixbook. Thanks for the coupon Matt

I like the new set of images. Very creative. I have to say, though, the first "3:43 PM" is my favorite of the entire thread. It has a certain classic. timeless charm to it. I think what i like the best about that image, and it's probably because I see it in context with the other images, is that the subject appears to be the clock, but the image isn't about the clock. As a stand alone, I don't think it would have the same impact. It needs to be in a series, much like Minnie's Dam Birds project.

Thanks, Duck. You have helped me make explicit why I included 3:43 and why I find it so appealing. Yes, I can sing, but I don't have to do it to prove it. I know it. Yes, it's about the violins, but I don't have to include them to show it. But it only works in context with the others. Thanks. Matt

While the bride sought help in a knit store, I walked into a violin sales and repair shop. The owner allowed me into the display room for some photos; she also is an amateur photographer and so welcomed me. MattStrings (1 of 2).jpgStrings (2 of 2).jpg
