Great capture of a common urban activity. Very rugged and raw. This shot makes you think about the lives of each person who had touched that dice. Each person who had gambled not only with money, but with their exsistence on this earth as well.
Damn Jerry, it's been a long time since I've seen anything by you (my fault I know), but I'm glad I came back to see this photo. There is not one thing I would change on it to be completely and utterly honest with you, because it's perfect. Well.. maybe not perfect but as close to it as you ever want to be.
Such a beautiful medium between the white of the die, and the dirty grit around it. Kind of like The Beauty and The Beast or something, because it's such a huge contrast.
Man... I'm glad I didn't miss this. Let's just leave it at that
No problems mate, it's been far too long between comments from my end
Now that I look at it, I can see the contrast you've drawn quite clearly. Also, it would work well with the title to have such a subject matter as that, perhaps even better than the comparison I drew myself. Either way, it's a wonderful thing to find in such a place at any rate
I've been being too social, yet not social enough in the places I want to be. Since I got the ` I've been run off my feet with comments and shit, so I'm just catching up now. Alas, take care mate! easy, fo sho.
This is just gorgeous. I love all the earthy colours and the roughness of all the surfaces. You've composed it really well, it just looks so intriguing. Something that should look simple but has huge amounts of interest and rough beauty.
Found objects are fantastic. You should send that photo into Found Magazine--and concoct some far-fetched story about how it ended up in your alleyway.
There's an element of creepiness and mystery about found objects. Yessah. I congratulate you on the find more than the photo, as it is nothing special in particular. But when you add the information that the dice is NOT yours and you don't know whose it was...that's where the true intrigue lies.
