15-Nov-06 - Crisis / Crise

15-Nov-06 - Crisis / Crise

Renamed after Guilliom's comment.

"No one sacrifices more for art than I do" Jude said. And what about that? I am NOT talking about the Heineken - empty as I arrived. I am talking about what my PANTS had to sip to sit in this chair.
"Don't sit straight" Ana said . And what about that? Here is the proof that you can sit straight and break a few moral rules (and still have blood in the feet ;-))

Jude's ping
Ana's pong

This is image is great. Very captivating. Shame about the Heineken carton being empty though. ;-)

LOL at your caption.
LOL at Niall!
And thanks for the invite for the seat but I think I'll wait for you to flip over that sofa behind you. I'm hoping it's dry!

What time did the hurricane roll through?
Don't worry...
...we're passing the hat around the office for you.
: )

I'm trying desperatly to remember the adage about 'a man and his castle'!
Love the incongruity here.
And the look on your face ... defiant? interupted?
Wonderful image, JD!
Barbara Heide26-Nov-2006 22:01
lol! eh oui..l'artiste est obligé de payer de sa personne...c'est très réussi! Magnifique image qui ouvre vers toutes sortes de suppositions...sans connaître les détails, c'est génial! v

Robert Walls24-Nov-2006 12:06

Fantastic work. Voted
Sheila19-Nov-2006 22:47
This is fantastic. I feel as if I am taking your photograph and you are so annoyed to be disturbed. Brilliant.
fred_il17-Nov-2006 23:45
Je suis un peu en retard!!
La pose est cool mais le regard ne l'est pas.
Tu as l'air de dire: Prends vite la photo que je puisse sortir de ce fauteuil!
Je remarque aussi que le sac de photo est pres de toi, pret a degainer!!
CIS17-Nov-2006 21:35
Really enjoyed this!!! V
Martha Albuquerque17-Nov-2006 13:11

Guest 16-Nov-2006 21:31
Tout a été dit... je me contente de voter.
Totu simplement fantastique: mise en scène, lumière, expression, composition, idée bien sûr, etc.
Joy Miller16-Nov-2006 17:19
Great self portrait.
Silvia Roitman16-Nov-2006 15:01
interesting image!!
René Lortie16-Nov-2006 14:11
J'aime beaucoup ta mise en scène dans ce décor. Tu fais de la récupération à ta manière : original et inusitée. Bra~V~o.
Chris Thorpe16-Nov-2006 12:57
What a great image, JD. Do they deliver the paper there?... and thanks for the pings, really great stuff! GMV
Eckhart Derschmidt16-Nov-2006 11:35
Yeah, a great effort, but a great result too. Hope your pants have dried up meanwhile ;-)
Gary Winters16-Nov-2006 08:11
This is so good on so many levels. My congratulations on an outstanding image!
Photo Club Pavillonnais16-Nov-2006 07:36
.... décoration intérieure hyper réaliste ... Extraordinaire cliché, fantastique JD !!
AL16-Nov-2006 07:18
What a fantastic SP, well worth your sacrifice! Great ping pong too. Your expression seemed to question us or ask to leave you alone in your comfortable setting :-) Not sure about the crisis factor but I like it! Voted.
shatterbug16-Nov-2006 07:05
Lol, some really funny comments here, and of course your sense of humor is quite evident also ;-) How much is the rent? Love the expression on your face...just an overall great shot! V.
Roe..16-Nov-2006 03:58
I want that chair...this pic is so cool..I love it..v
Cindi Smith15-Nov-2006 23:16
You look so much at home but yet this shot, JD! I agree with Dave, clean it up a bit and it would be a great place to camp! V
David Royall15-Nov-2006 23:02
My first thought was that you sacrificed your pants to get this shot.
With a little cleaning up, that should make a pretty good camping site.
Donnaray15-Nov-2006 23:01
Well worth the sacrifice, excellent image. v
Priya Shailesh15-Nov-2006 22:45
Excellent shot, nice to see you.
Adrian Reilly15-Nov-2006 22:23
a country bumkin Jean:-) suits u sir, worth the wet but:-)
jlm15-Nov-2006 22:23
Content de te voir... avant de partir quelques jours ;-)
chrisse15-Nov-2006 22:16
Je suppose qu'on ne servait pas de bières belges à cet endroit ?? Génial JD ;o)
J. Scott Coile15-Nov-2006 22:08
Now I can see it on a big screen. Serious sacrifice. I'm guessing nothing ran up your shirt :)
Buz Kiefer15-Nov-2006 22:08
Wonderful. V

With Alex on this...awesome !! vote
natisunber15-Nov-2006 21:42
Tu es un vai gentleman, JD!;)) en tout cas c'est très courageux, c'est vrai, d'affronter ce trône désastreux pour, dans la plus délicate des lumières, faire sourire deux ladies et, par une mise en perspective aussi subtile que talentueuse, poser la question de le Crise. Sans aucun doute, un excellent autoportrait et une image d'une force certaine. Un vote sans retenue!;)
Ana Carloto O'Shea15-Nov-2006 21:14
Well.. it would be impossible not to make a quick come back for such special pong.
Merci bien Jean-Daniel!!
I can see that the look you have on your face is the "I'll frame Ana with this pong" kind of look, am I right?
What a nice reading spot you've found... and such proper way to sit as well... ;) what can I say?? Looks perfect to me.
And most of all, thanks for making me laugh :o)
BAS Photography15-Nov-2006 21:12
Awesome!!! ~V~
jude15-Nov-2006 20:56
Ahhhh.. see, maybe SOMEONE sacrifices more than I do
Lovely setting.. all the comforts of home - or at least there was until you drank all the beer ..LOL
You look like you've been disturbed by someone while reading something important - maybe the RULES? ;)
Oh, and is that a camera backpack I see back there?
Thanks for the ping - I didn't feel a
Kevin Sargent15-Nov-2006 20:52
Brilliant shot!
TimA15-Nov-2006 20:31
Blood in your feet, and water in your pants. Oh boy - the struggles endured for a PAD! LOL
Voting even witthout the gag - this image is surreal!
MamyZ 15-Nov-2006 20:07
Mes connaissances de la langue anglaise et des règles imposées par votre club ne me permettent pas de comprendre quel rôle tu es entrain de jouer.
Mais je me demande où et comment tu as trouvé cet endroit bizarre et peu engageant pour en faire ton salon de lecture. A Dasle, le ramassage des encombrants a lieu une fois tous les 3 mois et tu ne trouverais pas un si beau mobilier dans la nature ! Très belle mise en scène , JD. Tu dois bien t'amuser parfois !
J. Scott Coile15-Nov-2006 20:02
Eric Carrère15-Nov-2006 19:59
C'est excellent ! Nice to see you too....V.
Jen Bixler15-Nov-2006 19:40
Guenter sums it up pretty much.
A great PING PONG and GREAT to see you.
Guenter Eh15-Nov-2006 19:33
JD - you are the greatest - with your edging humour and your original and unique pictures - as this one! BIG vote my friend! And I love this hidden but diabolic smile in your face!
