28-Jan

Montréal, Canada

SP

America is not so much a nightmare as a non-dream.
The American non-dream is precisely a move to wipe the dream out of existence.
The dream is a spontaneous happening and therefore dangerous to
a control system set up by the non-dreamers.

- William S. Burroughs

It reminds me of The man that owned the Buick 8 in "From a Buick 8" by Stephen King.

KimKong29-Jan-2006 01:07
He he, nice one! almost like the hat is supported by the book.
Anna Pagnacco29-Jan-2006 00:33
Excellent in all aspects! Anna
Andrea Aschedamini28-Jan-2006 22:52
love your hat ;-))

The sign of Craig Persel! Great - the hat on the book cover and the "real" Persel hat! And yes - a great element in this comp is the diagonal sharing the picture in two parts. Outstanding comp and perfect done in beautiful b+w tones!
Karen Stuebing28-Jan-2006 12:50
I feel like hiding after reading that quote too. :) Great SP and b/w. Speaks volumes.

Good use of B&W, nice light and compo.
natisunber28-Jan-2006 09:16
Excellent!;)

The photo makes me laughing, the subtitle turn me to thinking but the hat on the cover of the book brings me back to smiling (thanks god).
Gary Winters28-Jan-2006 06:24
Terrific SP!
Gayle P. Clement28-Jan-2006 04:55
The composition is awesome. I love the diagonal. GMV
Chris28-Jan-2006 04:16
Ah, your inspiration. Man, you got that diagonal perfectly from corner to corner, too.
jude28-Jan-2006 03:46
LOL! I had no idea!
Interesting what we all read.. you look so mysterious
Steve H28-Jan-2006 03:21
[unbaits breath] - obviously you pulled it off ;0) This is very Persel - thematically clever and graphically spot-on. Love the way the diagonal behind you bisects the frame. Vote.

Dreamers are dangerous: they can make things change... Martin Luther King had a dream.
Great SP!
Dan Chusid28-Jan-2006 01:50
Nice SP!
Cheryl28-Jan-2006 01:40
I do see a great gallery evolving!
Guest 28-Jan-2006 01:25
LOL! Bravo. Great interpretation of this idea.
This series of SP with books is really good, so far!
I hope others do it too ;-)
Adrian Reilly28-Jan-2006 01:04
great shot Craig, is that you on the cover, a similar hat, aH I see you have purchased the D50, wise choice, dont keep the body open for long if changing lenses and whatever you do dont touch the mirror or sensor. I have afew annoying blobs on mine which are starting to show on the pics, I wish someone had told me this.
Guest 28-Jan-2006 00:49
Love it. Your self portrait series is creative, evoking and fun! Like the square crop on this btw - v nice choice.
George - Omiros Christakos28-Jan-2006 00:30
Another stylish photo with the famous hat. Bravo Craig. V.
Steve England28-Jan-2006 00:26
There's that hat again..

'The answer to any question will be revealed when you stop asking questions'. Also Bill. His departure is another notch on the pounding gavel of non-dreamers. Nice photo:)
Michel CORBOZ28-Jan-2006 00:12
Belle trouvaille!
