Pure and Simple
Pure calcium coral...simple torch and piece of white paper.
My son Sean plays a 1932 Lady Conn Tenor Sax in a Jazz/Funk band. While I don't think the sax is 'simple' he makes it sound simple. I will post my odd shots over at Anarchy but for now this is the best I could get from my new camera. I wanted this to be so much better but couldn't. When he plays it really is pure and simple joy.

It was a tough one this week. I really had to reach‘«™
This week's theme has invited a wide array of interpretations. Both of mine are tenuous at best, the lock better than the shiny exhaust pipes.
Someone commented a few weeks ago about how an assignment and a deadline pushes us creatively, forces us to work toward a deadline, to be spontaneous, and to meet the challenge. I can't help but think that's a good thing, at least for those who are looking for some photographic calisthenics.
I also think (perhaps optimistically) that each of us is harder on her- or himself than others are.
Nonetheless, another batch of good, fun, and interesting photos.
This shot was made with the leaf on top of the fuel tank of my R90/6 using a Canon point and shoot camera set to macro and "Wide Screen." The Wide Screen setting crops the top and bottom of the image in the camera, similar to the 16:9 format of HD TV.
Lots of good photos again this week!
