He more or less already did previously. It's his ongoing feud with the hereafter.
OK, I will him alone... intermittently. Wait, isn't that a movie, 'the sweet hereafter'? See with a little prodding these things come to the fore.

I think I may have fixed a deal with that dimension. Put another way, there's one mighty lot of stuff riding on my side of the bargain!

That apart, John's right: the almost experienced is more interesting to me than the route oft travelled. Maybe that's one way that photography has a thing painters seldom seem to exploit - it may be painters don't spend that much time with lenses and, if they do, usually subscribe to the f16 school of thought.

Ok, a little bit closer to monotone, albeit, quite abstract.

Edit: and a second with spider webs intact.)

Pink is in as long as you like flowers.

I like flowers, but I'm not partial to pink, I'm afraid.

Thank-you. The light was coming from a single narrow horizontal window above, behind, and just to one side of the subject. I used a white reflector to fill. That was my old house where I had developed a better mental catalog of the window light (seasonal, time-of-day, weather-wise) than my current house.

Thanks for some wonderful photos that picked up my hint about the broad scope of "monochrome". Here is one in with its natural color, no desaturation.

P. S. I added a "remix", more how I would have printed it in the darkroom. Any opinions?

Experimenting with infrared look. To me it works on so few images. Here is one that looks rather dramatic.

Yes! The composition has something to do with it too, John.

Paddling On Glitter

My mind goes nuts just thinking what that light and contrast would have offered a 500mm Cat lens!

Thank you, Rob
Not having the Cat 500mm lens, I resorted to a somewhat abstract rendition, trying to get the little bokeh circles this way.

I like the chosen rendering considering the subject matter and title. Is the image metaphorical, illustrative, documentary or ?? Composition is very deliberate. Is the posing very deliberate too, or something that the subject did which you then captured?
