Ah yes, I remember well. I was quite satisfied by this one ("Damn... it seems to be all good here" I said. Hehe). And a nice sense of humor too. A lot of analogies, of course.

I didn't vote. It's the time to repair :) (Smile)

Brilliant shot, your guy should be sitting on a step in NYC with earther woman, what a couple they would make. Oh and I must add - 0 out of 10 for fashion. Whats he gonna do if God is picky about who he invites to his party rofl

Wonderful photo! Looking at all your latest submissions I really feel like getting out of here and seeing new places. Apparently there's a whole world out there. Or so I've heard. I think that it's great that you're out there photographing the seemingly ordinary and exposing or at least giving us a hint of what may lie beneath. Tales of ordinary madness. Or just life.
The States seems like such a photogenic place as well. We all know what everything there looks like, -every type of street sign or other small detail has been exported worldwide through countless images. It has become this mythical land where everything looks like a backdrop to a road movie. Harsh yet beautiful... beautiful and yet at times completely alienated and devoid of empathy.
Looking at your photos has inspired me to the following conclusions:
1. I need to travel. Haven't been on a vacation in 6 years.
2. I need a better english dictionary if I am to write these long comments.
3. I need to see Wim Wenders "Alice in den Städten" (Alice in the Cities) again.
4. I should consider submitting some new photos of mine in the Journalism-category.

Makes me wonder what a bible-basher like him keeps in that liquid cooler in front of him - the sign is a nice addition in this scene as well.

Just gorgeous Ash. Would love to have been there with you to take a few for myself... And his tie, oh man that tie. :) (Smile) and sweating like the slothful pig he is...
Good to see that your signature purple has returned. Wouldnt be the same without. :D (Big Grin)

Wow, that is one grimacing bible-thumper. I like how he has sneakers! This is like post-modern bible salesman. Heh.

Anyhow, I like your description. Seems you found the very inner sanctum of Texas, maybe.

Very crisp. The sign 'pops'.

Is he disgruntled about the photograph, or does he have his mind elsewhere, pondering over how to expunge satan from the world?

Heheh, excellent! I think this might of been more interesting in color, though.

And just how do you believe on the Lord? I can't dig him up and stand on him, the Christ mythos says he ascended. =D (Big Grin)
