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!”…

    Wonderful series Bob. I love the neutral tones and the wonderful negative space the chess pieces create. Very pleasing to the eye, warm and comfortable, yet contemplative. clapping
