    Great stuff, John. The bunny scares me a bit, though.... expect for his head to suddenly spin around.

    Thanks, all.

    Kyle, I have never turned it around and looked it in the face. I just don't... I don't want to be surprised...

    You couldn't make that bunny one up ... (or could you?)

    Surreal & Grimey - I like it.

    Ha ha! No, the bunny is real and I AM bonding with the X100!

    Somebody set that bunny up some time ago, but I don't know who. There's a homeless guy "living" in the building and I scared him out again I'm afraid. Sometimes he's there, sometimes he's not. Maybe he, one of his predecessors, or some local kid set that up -- but it's not recent whoever did it.

    Thanks all!

    One more from this trip. This large safe is surrounded by thick, very hard stone blocks and a double locked mechanism. Nobody has opened it in over 40 years.

    These safes were necessary in the days of "pay packets" before paychecks when folks were given cash packets at the end of the week. Also, nearly impregnable fortresses like this one were good for keeping trade secrets in. Back in the day, security was strictly a physical matter.

    NOT HDR. A single shot on the X100 with the OOC JPG processed to look like this.

    Lovely detail and tones on the safe door shot. The bunny still wins as an image, however. Brilliant and creepy.

    I can just imagine the single tear running from its sad wee face. Poor bunny.

    Wonderful pictures John.

    To raising our "bar"

    This series, illustrates, something that I and others have noticed. That Most photographers work, seems to have a certain "look", no matter what the subject matter. John, your work has a "richness", and something else, that I can't explain, that sets you apart from "average". When I see entropic remnants at the head of a post, I have an anticipation of something well done. Encourages me to work just a bit harder, to improve my own "look".

    Thanks, for the higher "standard", :2thumbs:

    Stephen, your post is literally making me a little teary-eyed. That kind of feedback makes one feel that they are really are finding a "voice" or "identity' in their art and I really, REALLY appreciate your comment, thank you.

    Poor bunny :(

    Very moody shots! I like the series very much for the style and evocative subject.

    Seems like Karen, Stan and I are the only ones who see a sad bunny as opposed to a creepy one. Hrrrmmmmm....

    John I love your decrepit building shots, they really are wonderful.

    These shots are superb. Three dimensional and mouthwatering. That bunny is a masterstroke, like something from an Alan Moore graphic novel.

    It's been an "interesting" (read: difficult) few days at work this week -- but you guys have definitely lightened my mood and thank you all for the kind words!
