When my kids were little they were very creative and productive too. Making lots of drawings and paintings and stuff and it all had to hung on the wall.
Next to these art works my kids also got lots of postcards from their grandparents, friends etc. ect… and these too had to get a nice spot. We mostly used thumbtacks for this….
These days they don’t make much ‘art’ anymore…. neither do the receive much analog greetings and cards so these thumtacks are waiting to be used again… someday….

Bob is especially interested in ‘the soul’ of the things without one, the expressiveness of the lifeless, the essence of material….. macro photography, ‘things’ in particular.
‘Things’ don’t have the tendency to walk away, to fly, to move, to have a meaning, are always present and do not complex, have patience, don’t nag etc. etc….. As Bob wrote in his profile… “I like it simple!”…
