I went to London last weekend to visit my son… we got some time left so my wife wanted to go to the Portobello market. As long I’m allowed to stay outside the stores it’s okay with me. I like the fresh air outside and to watch the people. These watches were everywhere on Portobello Road… and I love these because they were hanging in a row… The moment before I shot them I already knew it’s gonna be this picture…

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!”…
