    "Are you my Daddy" is my favorite. I go nuts for the personification of inanimate objects. Perhaps its my inner child.

    This isn't really a comment, but more of a question. The one with the snow has a lot of power lines. Is that by design?

    BTW that Canon you have is gorgeous...

    "Are you my Daddy" is slated to be reshot due to several nasty elements in the photo but yeah I loved it too, I do want to ask, Did you catch the family ties in that one?

    They are there ;)

    I am one of those people who won't clone out things like powerlines, That one is the one where I was working on composing it in a manor where the lines I would have had intruding into the shot had a place to go and have a place in the final photo. I did this by intentionally composing the eletrical pole into the shot instead of just the two buildings, this doubled the number of power lines but I was well aware that would happen. There was a comment about how the clouds interacted with the lines...but that aspect was a complete fluke :lol: I could not do that again if I tried. So yes their number was intentional, however how they interact with the rest of the shot was a stroke of luck.

    Thanks....She was in mint condition when I gor her...but I am wharing the paint a little thin now....:lol: I love the thing, best camera I ever owned.

    Thanks, It's kind of interesting, After Hours R&D is prolly one of the most thought out of the group comperable only to "Film is Dead" in amount of thought and planning. Originally, I wanted to accuire a Playboy Lighter and Wiskey glass, how ever the glass has proven to be more trouble than it's worth but...I burned an entire roll of film on that one just to make sure it worked.

    Fueling Deterioration, (Sledding snapshot not included) is the least thought out, That one was originally a comprimise made after some dissapointment after traveling to a shooting location to shoot a building only to find it obstructed from the only angle I could at the time get it unobstructed from. The thought process on that one was simply "hummm fuel pumps" Click "atleast this trip won't be a total bust" :lmao:
