Urban Dry Tooling 1

Contax TLA280 reflected into umbrella camera left, slightly above climber.

 

After the coolness of taking self portraits in the apartment became passe I hooked up with the folks at ZueriFlickrDrinks and headed to an industrial area outside of Zurich.

 

Shot conducted as part of the zueriflickrdrinks group outing and assisted by Eke.

 

The basic idea was to combine some cool fashion elements (Doc Martens) with the Urban landscape and something more dramatic (ice climbing/dry tooling gear).

 

The process from initial sketch to the final image is discussed at An American Peyote Scribble:
