    Bill Mitchell quoting bruce terry: "square doesn't work here, holds the viewer too distant, doesn't sweep you and your feelings into the image like a rectanglar format would"
    Sounds like a PSA-approved critique at the local camera club. I don't buy it.


    Hey Bill - You talk'n bout Me? A simple picture-taker who has never had need of a camera club or 'PSA' except in the context of the Prostate-Specific Antigen Test?

    With the preface, understand my comment: "My personal reaction is square doesn't work here, etc." See, this stuff is out of my head, nobody else's. You say what I say is from some knee-jerk-know-it-all? Then you my friend gotta join me in The Box ... but since we are both very good guys I think we forget The Box, go knock someone else side of the head.

    It really speaks to me. My Dad was career Army and we moved almost every year. On the road a lot and I remember that sign a lot, when I needed to stop, he just kept on going.

    I like this a lot, and much of his other work; this is beautifully exposed/lit, perfectly composed in my view, and communicates the isolation of the environment really well. Besides which it reminds me of Hopper and that's rarely a bad thing. Interesting decision to exclude part of the vehicle and the tip of the canopy.

    To me the photograph owes much to the extent of sky and foreground, which adds to its sparse nature. A rectangular approach would not have offered this and the ability to exclude part of the vehicle /canopy. Square is important to this photograph I think.
