The caption Criss-cross was stolen from Bob Larson without his written permission.

And he responded with:
I’m shocked, appalled, and offended. Your photo is obviously much more crossy than crissy, where as mine is the epitome of crissy with just a hint of crossy. To even insinuate that your photo even approaches the level of criss as mine is beyond comprehension!

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

    Wonderful shot. Love the lines and the color. His glove directions could not have been planned better. Everything works together so well; color and direction of the lines.

  • Thanks Herman. I seriously contemplated adding one more pipe (from another shot) to fill in the area to the top right but decided against it. Perhaps I will make another one where I obviously worked on the picture to make it more dramatic.
