Judy cool

In my kid-days from long ago, I liked to bang on things with my toy hammer and play with a pretend saw. As a kid today it is no different except that it means hot glue, velcro, duct tape, drill bits, hack saws, wing nuts, lock washers, and so on.


I worked a solid two weeks making a light strip box for my hot shoe flash. Everyday I had to modify the experiment. It kept my mind in the photography world even though I was no longer shooting.


Finally it was finished and I asked my reluctant model if she'd pose. Judy came out wearing my vest because it was cold. I really liked the pictures that came out. She did not.


I liked it enough to temporarily post it and add to my Steichen set.


I'm going to ask you vote on this one: keep or delete…

I won't be offended by a nay or like you any more for a yea.

Think of your vote as marriage counseling.lol.

    If you want total honesty, and it's my own analness, i'm distracted by the third Judy -- let me explain -- I'd prefer either total symmetry (the third Judy SEEMS a tad larger and a bit too dark, even with the great shading work) OR I'd like all three Judy's unrelated to each other...make sense?

    But the lighting/shading IS great!

    Okay, I think I agree with Roshie...so I re-did the image ...and as such Roshie's comments may not make as much sense now...but the picture now makes more sense...thanks Karen!
