    Holy ****... Lew, where ya' been????

    Interesting image; definitely gets me thinking; "Is she hurt?" "Is she ill?", "Is she face-palming because Lew did something...?" I'd say that makes it a good image.

    I hadn't much time for photography the last couple of years but I am hoping to remedy that now.
    I have moved from MD to NY state for a few months while I travel and then plan to live in Manhattan for a year or so.
    On Thursday, I'm going to Morocco for ~20 days, then back here for a couple of weeks and off to Thailand/Laos/Cambodia for a month. In January, Cuba for 10 days or so and somewhere tbd in February - maybe Turkey or Bosnia.

    Probably the face-palming is the most likely but she was ill.
    My wife died in May after 18 months of rapid deterioration (Frontotemporal Degeneration) and I've sold my house, given away the contents and have nothing left but cameras, photos, some clothes and books. Everything fits in my mini-van and I'm free to go anywhere, do anything.

    Like snowbear, I like this a lot. The conversion works nicely given the subject, and I like the framing. Very nice.

    The wife and I frequent NYC quite often. Maybe we can grab a coffee next time we come up?

    So sorry for your loss. It must have been a very difficult time for you.

    Good to see you back sharing your work.

    I'm hoping your travels help to heal, or to cope, in some small way.

    The image, with the back story, literally affects my heartbeat. Very powerful. Emotional. Shocking. Tragic.

    Quiet thoughts for you and yours.

    Sorry to hear about your wife. It sounds like you're doing well. Maybe we can link up on one of my trips to/from Maine.
