  1. This wouldn’t be the same biker chic lady from 2 posts back, would it? I think I recognize the socks! Great image here… I like the simple color palette, the subtle use of type, and the birdie narrative.

  2. i really love this one. its outstanding. it has a feel and aesthetic that made me recall robert vickrey. wonderful piece, very sparse and so poetic. the textures and transparencies, figures and sort of geometry are amazing.
    it has a kind of overall impact its hard to describe, a moment that is breathtaking in what it shows. and again a twist on the perspective, stretching the viewpoint in a way from looking in a southerly direction to seeing the entire plane of vision contained and brought to eye level

  3. Follow the yellow brick road….That pigeon is looking for the wizard.

    Great photo.
