Hello ikat -- you asked how I thought of the "crime scene" image. It was sort of a domino effect... unfortunately, I have only a small bit of time I can dedicate to DPC because my job is too demanding. So, I had a bag of m&ms on my desk at work, and I was shooting.

A guy who is a real jerk came by and made a rude comment about "playing" on work time. For the record, I was at lunch. :) Anyway, a few passive agressive gestures at his departing back, and I angrily grabbed one of the subjects and chomped down on it. This triggered the thought of how our civilized psyche copes with stresses that, if we were totally primal, would be expressed in violence. The photo is essentially a visualization of the act of transferrence, with chocolate as the actors in the play. Yeah, too many psychology courses in college...

Thanks to everyone that voted, and a special thanks to those that added the photo to their favorites: that's a real compliment! This has been my personal best so far! Whoo hoo!

Hilarious. The choice of yellow lined paper is an odd one. Still, the power and simplicity of the composition almost makes up for any technical errors. 8!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 04:40:42 AM
great idea, like the colors, pretty well executed overall. not sure I'm too fond of the lighting and the depth of field could be a little less shallow for my taste.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 01:39:10 AM
omg this is the awesomest pic i swear its liek 20 and a half outta 10...
  Photographer found comment helpful.

HAHAHAHA! I love it. Just wish you hadn't used lined paper... plain white or black with white writing would have been better,
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2004 12:36:22 AM
Absolutely love the concept. The photo doesn't really do it justice though. Perhaps a different setup with the M&M's out on the pavement and the outline in chalk.
