Then there are the conventions.......Those damned conventions. A watch. A flashlight. Expensive gun leather. Watches. Speedloaders. GI gear. Watches. Keyboards. A cigar. A watch. A pocket knife. A Rambo knife. A watch. A watch. A watch. What the hell is up with the watches?
I really have to hand it to Breda for her gun pic with flowers. How refreshing to see something different. Then i took a photo of a revolver with pearls. Hmmmmmmm not bad. Interesting. Several months ago, I wrote an article on taking gun photographs. In that article, I recalled a quote by surrealist painter Max Ernst....."The association of two or more apparently alien elements on a plane alien to both is the most potent ignition of poetry." I toyed with the idea of doing just that in gun photography, as I had in still life painting years ago.
Sometimes I think gun owner/photographers take themselves too seriously with their conventional approach to gun photography. Today I decided to push those boundaries.......To gather a few elements alien to one another. To have a little fun with gun photography and poke a bit of fun at myself and us all. Click to enlarge. Enjoy.
