Right out of the gates, eh Travis? Maybe I should try sitting in Atlanta traffic...

Good idea, well-executed; no movement this week, but the coils are just stored energy, waiting...dynamic, after all...and well, that's a very realistic rubber snake (I hope).

Yeah, right out of the gate...I look forward to Wednesday mornings! I also have a really busy week ahead of me, one that might not allow much time with my camera. So, I had to take it while I could. You don't want to sit in Atlanta traffic...it really is miserable.

Yep, no motion this week....

I think it was kinda funny that this theme came up, I did this one kind of as a tribute to my late grandmother...yeah, she was a joker and a prankster...she bought me the rubber snake when I was maybe 10, so it has been moved around for a LONG time...she and I played tricks on a lot of people with that snake...she approves of this image.

Creepy indeed, especially if you don't like snakes!

Funny reminds me of a family driving trip from WI to FL to go to Disney World. My Grandma came with us and I bought a huge rubber snake in FL as my souvenir. Grandma would have it wrapped around her neck while we drove down the highway. Lots of shocked looks and pointing.

Love the concept here but something not quite to your standards Travis... Maybe missing a sleeping child on the bed? Or screaming and pointing a parent in 'motion' reaching for the child?

Anyway thanks for triggering the memory about my Grandma made me smile.

Glad it could conjure up memories for you too.

I decided I would have to go a little more subtle, a little more minimal for this week. I always tend to put motion, tension and energy into the WA assignments, and don't want to get stuck in a rut, or stuck doing one thing. When it can be too easily picked out of the current entries page as mine, to me that is a sign to make a little change.

It would have been cool to have my daughter sleeping there...but she doesn't sit still long enough...and my wife won't get within 5 feet of that snake...fake or not it gives her the creeps...so it was just me and my childhood toy...not everyone can be a homerun, I still had fun making it. I doubt I will have the time to shoot another shot for something to change it to.

No worries, I'm sure you will have many future examples of your fine work I will envy as I have in the past. Good luck this week.

Thanks for the vote of confidence and kind words. My shooting over the next few weeks is going to be limited...my day job is taking over!

Thanks for taking the time Klaus. Encounters with rattlesnakes are fairly rare here...my last one the snake was already dead, I think a fellow hiker took exception to the snake it its own home...a real shame. I myself am not scared of them.

Well, Travis, as if we don't have enough to worry about, now we have to check under our pillows before turning in for the night. Mighty creepy!!

HI Bob, yeah, I am a little sick, I actually used to have pet snakes, I have had 6 or 7 in my life, from a Hognose to a Ball Python, I am actually fascinated by them.
