    I like the behind the scenes shots, it helps put the piece into context.

  • yep, in case of a representative image it makes sense to “set the scene”
    Good comment, thanks.

    I adore the original. I didnt need the others. I love the hint of red amongst the drab grey. It gives life and interest.

  • You might be right, but my visit to China was such an experience that I feel the need to elaborate. i brought over 2500 photos, mainly “happy snaps” but each has a very strong emotional loading for me, so maybe I am overdoing it. At the end of the proverbial, an image has to speak for itself – right you are! And there is no need or possibility to explain where what and how.
    Got a bit carried away, but couldn’t help it ;-)

    Like the pallette and subdued mood of the Red Chair pic – and that strange looking animal that looks like he might go ‘mao.’

  • he did in his day, he surely did…

    i am glad you elaborated, i kind of gave the chair some more ‘fullness’.

  • good, that was my first though.

  • For all we know this chair could be crashed under a pile of concrete rubble, and the man and his crew may be dead…
    This picture was taken about 50 – 80 km from the epicentre of the recent earthquake in Si Chuan.
    And 2:30 was the time they would sit down to their cards or mahjong.
    Help Si Chuan
