Scary and well put together. Did you ever consider journalism as a career?

Thanks Bill, I have always appreciated the work of good Photojournalists. I think it is quite an art. To surmise a story or event in one single frame of time is quite a talent and one that I admire. Perhaps if I hadn't gone down the graphic design route, I think it would have been a career I would have enjoyed.

Mike, you better get serious! What, you think I shoot for fun? This is war buddy!! .

Seriously, I'm glad you like the entry Mike. Thank you. Funny you should mention being serious, I just got my new Lumix LX5 compact camera the other day to help break me out of being so one sided with my setup shots in the studio. I rarely take my big Nikon D80 with me (people look at me funny ) I figured this will give me the opportunity to experiment with an added point of view and I look forward to the challenge. My shot this week was a simple snap (and printed out) taken with the LX5 of my pups playing mouth wars on the floor while sitting in my computer chair reading Fred's site. It was actually quite liberating not being so serious. Ok Ok, the final composition was setup up in my studio.. Hey I'm working on it!

Great idea, the arrangement of props support the storyline quite well.

Thanks a bunch Craig. Been stuck on #17 for a while now. It would be nice to see #18 but my biggest enjoyment is shooting with you guys. #18 can wait.

Thank you David. I need to look at a new avenue of shooting, I'm running out of props.

I agree, let's see I registered .. 9 years ago (!), a mere 2 months after you. As such I think you should wait until I also have 17 wins, which at the rate of 1 win per 9 years is a mere.... 144 years.

So, you are not allowed to win any more until the year 2155. How does that sound?

MIke, how are you? It has been a while. As you may know, I took almost two years off from photography, but I am finding that with renewed enthusiasm I am enjoying it more than ever. I, too, purchased a smaller camera for "street" shooting. Formerly, I used a Canon 1Ds II almost exclusively, and people reacted to it as if I were pointing a cannon at them, not to mention the fact that I needed a pack mule to accompany me when I took the 1Ds and a couple of extra lenses.

Well, I see that you have been busy since I have been away; seventeen wins - wow!! Although I am impressed, I am not surprised in the least. You have always impressed me with your ideas and execution, this week's entry is no exception. I look forward to participating in the WA again and to seeing more of your work.

Ok, how about I give you until...humm... Na, no deal buddy. I'm going to crush you any chance I get! I can't believe it's been nine years we've been shooting here together Craig. That's nine years of competition you’ve given me, so it's really your fault. I'm grateful to Fred for keeping the site going for so long and supplying me with a place I can come to get inspiration and motivation from good people and great photographers. Looking forward to the next nine

Robert, I'm good, thank you. So nice to see you! I sure hope you start shooting with us again. I sure miss your work. I recently came back myself after quite a long time. I think these hiatus happen to many of us but we can only ignore the call for so long. I'm really glad to be shooting again as well.

It's a little hard to do much street photography out here in the desert but I sure would love to. I'm going to make an effort to get out of the studio and attempt some more real world pieces. I love my little Lx5 and can't wait to put it to work.
