    Reminds me a bit of some of E. Westons work during his time in Mexico. Spot on in every respect Joe.

    Very nice, Joe. I like the hint of mirrored writing that I can see.

    Love the subject, love the composition and viewpoint, love the "gritty" look!
    Simply love it, for all its rough dark mood.

    Strong image, "ongepolijste schoonheid" in Dutch!

    Thank you all for your comments. Danny, regarding the "gritty" look, part of the explanation might lie in the scanner picking up the fiber paper's glossy surface texture. You might also notice, along the bottom edge, a reflection of light from the scanner, due to the curl of the paper, where you can more easily see the paper's texture. Whatever the reason, I'll take credit for it!

    Joe, I really enjoy this 'side' to your work.
    You have a very unique eye for a picture.
    This is fabulous.
