Thanks, Harrie. I’m glad for that!

I love the delicate photos I have come to expect which makes this a gutsy surprise. It seems to me fierce and sad at the same time. Wonderful and in the opposite way.

Thank you, Lois. Reading what you wrote and looking at this photograph again, there’s something militaristic about it to me. Maybe I’ve seen tanks or something with this kind of lettering on them. I was attracted to the variety of color and to the indistinctness of the last two numbers when I took the photograph.

This is one of my favorite from this series, Linda. Nice work!

Thank you, Ken. I almost wish I’d made a vertical of just the last two figures. But I like the rest of it too much. I guess I could have split it up in several ways, to get it all photographed. Next time, ha ha.

I like the idea of the found photo within the photo. I see it in my own stuff and sometimes wonder why I didn’t see it when I made the shot.

I like that concept, Ken: a found photo within a photo. Somehow it seems forgiving.

Dumpsters with an identity crisis? What beautiful layers, textures and colors this one has, and the lettering throws everything off kilter. In a good way..

Thanks, Lynn. Yes, there seems to be some confusion about the last two numbers on this one. Lucky for me, cuz it’s my favorite part.
