Marion, I like how you always look for something a bit different and experiment with ideas. There are some great shots in this collection, I like particularly the first and the last one for their abstract feel. Perhaps cutting it a bit a shorter would make it stronger. Overall nice work.

I want to edit this essay, cut a couple, move them around, but it's an essay worth editing.

Congratulations on seeing this. I would not have been inspired to take the photos, would not have had the vision that it could create images like this. Together, they form an irreverent art.

Your essay reminds me of Australia. Sure I've never been there but you've capture the tones and light I would expect. With the warped reflections you've turned an auto show into a funhouse of mirrors. The cars of today just aren't as photogenic as they were in the 70's and earlier. Must have been a treat to be surrounded by the beautiful lines, colors, and of course chrome. Nice addition to the December photo essays. Thanks

Your stuff's always interesting Marion. This essay isn't quite as absorbing for me as was your terrific Wrecking Yard essay, but that's only because these pictures are easier to resolve than were the much more abstract wrecking yard images.

But it's still a clever and reflective (groan) series in which the total effect exceeds the sum of the parts, and there's a coherent point of view. So the interest in any one picture is multiplied by its relationship to the others and to the artistic theme.

Next I'd like to see an essay about sweeping those paths. Or about not sweeping them. Probably the latter would be the most fun, in your hands.

You always entertain and very often surprise with wry points of view that attest to your youthful (well done you!) curiosity and your lively intellect. And you always leave a smile on my dial. Thank you.
