Sweet, Soft & Lazy.... by Bob Daalder

I think it’s all in the title… that’s what I think of, that’s what I see and that’s what I hear when I look at this saxophone…

Canon EOS 60D, Tokina AT-X Pro D 100mm F2.8 Macro

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!”…

    Very cool, Bob. I’d considered buying an old sax to do a similar set-up, but never got around to it.

  • I borrowed this one… have to bring it back in a couple of days but the owner promised me I can borrow it again… Isn’t that wonderful! thanks for the compliment Matthew….

    I’d love to see it, but the matted image is so small. When I click on it, there’s a big watermark in the middle. I used to know a way to get to the actual viewing image, but I’m not talented in that way today.

  • I changed it because I think you are right about the size of the image…. hope you like it better this way! at least I do (although it’s less sophisticated without the border and stuff…. ;-))
