A dichotomous collection of personal items protraying Ancient and Modern themes: War/Peace, Love/Hate, Old/New, Organic/Inorganic - fundamentally the Ying and Yang of life.

List of the items:

Petrified Tree
Pez Happy Face
Peace Pin
Taiwanese Lucky Cat
Sgt Moorse (great uncle) from WW I
Hopi Pottery Shard & Modern Stone Carving
Vegas Dice
Rune Stone
Hawaiian Postcard (circa 1915)
Eiffel Tower and Coliseum models
Ying Yang Exercise Ball
Tolstoy's War & Peace
Insect Robot
1 OZ Gold Coin
Stone Dinosaur
Quartz Crystal
2 album covers
Lego Skateborder

So many of these items have some history, this was a fun project, shot in a mini studio box with a light kit, tripod and without flash.

I don't know that ancient vs. modern is really a dichotomy so much as a contrast. There are some very interesting objects pictured, but too many, I think. I like the idea of using the old map as a backdrop. 6.

What an eclectic collection. I want to start picking the things up and inspecting them further. Great mix of colors and textures.
