A really wonderful collection of images...and stories! (Herman, you are a stud!)

Thanks to everyone who submitted.

Some great photos, but it was a lucky break for Pablo Casals that he was Spanish and not Chinese, since he was 12 when he started Cello lessons.

Thanks for curating this Mike and thanks to the contributors including those who didn’t make the cut. I enjoyed viewing and reading.

However, I don’t like the collection’s name or concept, right from when it was announced. It sure hasn’t worked for me. And, looking at the final dozen, no names no pack drill, the link to ‘affection’ is way beyond just a stretch for some of them.



@ David Lee. Sorry to hear that, and wish you the best. You might like to check out the idea of vanitas. I think the Tate has a short bit on it, if I recall. Yep.


It is something I seem to return to. In late autumn, funnily enough. I'm a bit sparse on the skull though.

Take care,

This is a truly fascinating collection of photos and narratives! You've hit it out of the park with this article, Mike.

Some really impressive work here. Looking forward to the next Baker's Dozen.

An inspired choice of inspiring images. Thanks for this.

Very neat series. It is amazing how a rather ordinary photograph can come to life with an accompanying story. I think the best example is The Bucket, essentially a mundane photo brought to life with a wonderful story.

A wonderful collection. At first I was drawn to the found object photos but over time the photos that showed objects in their natural environment rose to the top. As an outdoorsman, I really love Daniel Speyer’s canoe picture. The photo of the canoe parked there on the beach reminds me of times when I found myself looking back over my shoulder at a beloved car or motorcycle that I had just parked.

Len's story and the picture that comes with it are just wonderful. And humbling. And inspiring. What is my oldest posession? That's probably interesting for everyone to (try to) answer!

Truncated square octahedron. On the Internet there is very little information on it and one wonders: how it is defined? What are its properties? I confess my ignorance; it looks that this craze of truncated oddities started in the Renaissance...

Loved the bucket and the story - all of them actually.
