Migrant Mother perhaps?

Oddly, my eye was drawn to a ‘face’ in your snow picture at ... well I won’t say where because either it’s obvious or just me. Maybe it’s a result of having first seen the Chester Williams photo.

All being fair in love and war is not a reasonable concept, because it makes no moral distinction between the sexes.

What is good for the gander is decidedly not always good for the goose, whatever swamp pop rock singers may have to declare on that topic.

I think I'd try to get that picture back. You may or may not really want or need it, but if you consider how Dr House used to operate (and the Stones sing), you may not get what you want, but you may get what you need instead. Either way, you should get something, which unless luck is against you, is mostly better than nothing.

Mike, look on the bright side. Your ex-girlfriend obviously appreciates fine art. And thank goodness you weren’t married to her. She would get at least half your assets in that case.

[Good point, Ned. There's always a bright side.... --Mike]

I don’t think I’ve ever bought prints, all I have hanging from walls around the house are either mine or gifts from long time photographers/friends.
Having said that, I’d like to buy the Williams picture, but considering the exchange rate [1 Argentinian peso = 2.7 U.S. cents], I’m not sure I could at current market prices.
Maybe a small size print, with the added benefit of being easy to hide from my wife until it’s on the wall.

**** Related to 'Paradeolia' is 'Apophenia' which is the spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena. The term was coined by German neurologist and psychiatrist Klaus Conrad (1905-1961). Conrad focused on the finding of abnormal meaning or significance in random experiences by psychotic people. Could that be a clue as to why we photographers are as we are?

Mike, I am still interested in getting a print of Chester Williams' image. You mentioned in the notes about the Peter Turnley sale that 30x40cm was a standard European size and that size would suit me (and hopefully my wallet).

I would consider the Williams print, but I would want it about 9 x 16, almost a 2:1 ratio. I would like permission to copy, and the copy I would slice down at the vertical line at the tip of the nose, so that I could place in the corner of the room. I might also fold the print on that line, and place in the corner of the room. I wouldn't do that with the original.

Called it! I knew this was print-sale worthy the moment I saw it. 8x10 or 10x12 for me, please.

I am interested in the Williams print in any size from 5" to 17" along the top edge( side length determined by image aspect ratio) depending on cost.

I bought a copy of that shot of someone with an umbrella on a sidewalk. I'd like the William the same size. Ummm, you know the one I mean that's waiting until I finish my move and get it out of the closet?

I spotted (and snapped) something in the same general genre while walking in the Red River Gorge in KY.



That is a wonderful photograph. I wish I had taken it. I would be interested in a print, at least 16" by 20".

Mike, I would be interested in a print of Chester Williams' wonderful photograph. My preference is size would be in the 6x9, 7x10 or even 8x12 range. However, in my opinion the image is strong enough to be presented well in about any size.

Phil...I will gladly grant you permission to enable you to fulfill your vision! Great idea...

Great picture especially that many people would just walk by without seeing anything. Congratulations to Chester Williams. Mike, thank you for posting.
The picture aspect ratio is 2/3. I'd likely be interested in 16/24 or 12/18.

my now-ex-girlfriend didn't return to me when she bolted (TMI? Sorry)

Hardly TMI. I read you every day, I get invested in your life. First there was "S", then there wasn't. You know damned well I want a few details--don't need the entire grisly, painful episode, but a few highlights and a bit of overview would be fulfilling.
