Uh oh... I see a series starting here.

I love the abstract pose of the last image... and the specular highlights.

The strong contrasts in #1 make that stand out for me. Such a creative eye, Matt!

So you've been to the future and found us waiting for you. They seem to be a quiet lot, and well disciplined too!

I too see a series starting here! S-
