I assume you took that. It's beautiful - like a Vija Celmins drawing.

Thank you. And, yes. I'm finally willing to experiment with the doctoring of my own photographs. Almost everything I've put up on LJ has been straight from the memory card. I didn't even crop. But now I want to play around. I figure if it's obvious that I'm messing with the original, the move is better justified. This one was cropped -- about 1/6th of the original is missing here -- and tweaked for the high-contrast B+W look. The overall strangeness of the shot, however, is not an effect. It's taken through glass doors covered in soap. Oh, and when I share this kind of image, it will be tagged "visual poetry" instead of "photography."

Nice image. It took me a second before I realized it was taken through a window being washed. It's good to see you experimenting--you did a really great job with this one.

Thanks! It means a lot coming from you. I'm trying to make metaphors with the combination of image and caption.

This is a really incredible image. Really incredible. I'm excited to see what else you'll be posting. Keep the experiments coming!

Another step forward down the Allegorical Highway.
