    Nice. You have any hand shots? I bet his hands would be an awesome subject.

    A lot more going on here than is on the surface. I like the shot but I like the mood even better. I like that they are verticle as well it focuses more on your chosen subject that on the building. Nice work.

    i'm glad to hear you guys like it.

    mystery, your on the right track with that more than on the surface business . . . i'm curious to see what you guys pull out of this.

    also, on the right the tree limbs you see in the back are from a bodark tree, in which is a tree house that is built from at least %70 recycled materials, the whole construction site (tree house, cottage, large studio, balcony, loft, wood burning hot tub etc - all recycled. ) is the one from a post of mine along time ago. this is just one of the men behind the magic. the other guy is blurred face man who you can see in the general critique section right now. something about being in that place makes me put so much more heart and thought into my portraits . . . if it wasn't already rented out i would quit school and rent it.

    oh, and rent for the whole place is $500 a month, and you can rent out the cottage to someone else, easily for $200-$400 a month. water gathers off the roof into a sistern which provides water for the toilets. its amazing. the guy is an absolute genius, and one of the conditions of renting it is that you be a working artist with a portfolio to show.

    cool huh!

    Very cool indeed. I have always wanted to sell my house and buy a two story building in the dying downtown section of an even smaller town. turn the bottom into a studio and the top into an efficiency apartment. No luck convincing the wife.

    Artist should live in cool places, not that I consider myself one. Even hack photographers should.

    These are really great Mike! I love the tone and composition. The B&W is VERY effective in these, and contrast is RIGHT ON.

    Well done!
