She was the prettiest 'clip he had ever seen... by 

Part of an ongoing project called “project 1/52”. My selected theme is “The time and life of the ’Clips family”, a series of surreal anthropomorphic paperclips.

Not sure yet if I will add the rest to RedBubble yet, but you can find the whole series here: Paperclips are people too!

[Sony a580; Sigma 17-70, F/16, 1/125sec, side flash; ISO-100; LR3]

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    Hehe; I remember seeing this on on the facebook page. I may not have had the time to see everything you’ve uploaded in the past couple of month; but I’m now on my way to pursuing my art full time now (I hope) and will hopefully keep up to date from now on. Funny how the very first work I saw from you was on a small object and seeing what you do now.
