This is the first time I have been on this site and I have looked at hundreds of great photos but this one made me laugh so hard I had to comment. Maybe we have the same weird sense of humor! I wish I had this hanging up somewhere so I could chuckle all day.

Just a question: Was the lobster still alive while you used (abused?) him for your photo?

Funny. Left-clawed lobster... How did it taste?
08/25/2002 03:07:00 PM
Funny.............

Technically a very clean, sharp image. The idea is original and fun. Two nitpicks: would have liked to see the top of the pencil less blurred because it is fairly upfront in the picture. The other is I wonder why the right claw has yellow tape; it spoils the effect a little of this being a "normal, natural" shell fish writing his testament en route to the skillet. 8 Journey

That is funny! Great photo, but you'll probably get some knucklehead comments about how 'cruel' the photo is from some anal folks. I'm giving you an 8. Good job!

Silly and funny :) Like the texture of lobster and wood.

the randomness of a lobster holding a pencil is what makes this photo

Now I've seen everthing! I think the other band should have been removed from his right claw, but all in all, a clever shot.

It's funny. But this typing "Last will..." perhaps were better writed by hand. (7)

That is such a cute idea! (Is it already dead?) Great shot, including the edge of the pot is a wonderful touch. Maybe a touch more light on the lobster, but not that bad! 9 Swash

Too darn funny. This is very creative and original. I like the obvious, but subtle pan. I have the feeling someone is going to comment on the focus of the pencil. However, I think its important that the focus is on the paper. The pencil is IN the photo, that's all that matters. I like the lighting and the angle. You're going to have to do a tutorial on how to train lobsters to hold a pencil. Too funny. Good luck with the challenge.

Technically flawless, and _hilarious_! ... but can lobsters really write in caligraphy?
