Hi Don,

I like very much your set of pictures, my preferred is this one:

Fortunately you had no problems with owner of the pizza place, last week in
Barcelona I was photographing the inox tables of a caf? shop after a reining
day, and the owner has prohibited me....!  I understand possible problems
photographing people, or in a local,  but with objects?, it is really crazy
and stupid, this is the second time that s similar situation arrive me, the
last one was  when I was photographing some boats on a beach (it wasn't from
US Army).

Saludos desde Barcelona

Asunto: [Leica] Don's early PAW Abstractions

Prompted by comments that this was a predominately B&W list and by some
wonderful D2 images out of Berlin I loaded up an M or two with Velvia and
wondered around with a camera as usual. The fall colors didn't do much for
me, even the red Ferrari in the parking lot didn't inspire any images.
However, one morning on the way in to work I drove by a pizza place and
loved the early morning light. One U turn and a couple of rolls of film
later we have this weeks selection.
 First, who could resist this smile?
 Next, a simple abstract of form, color and shadow:
 Third, variations with added color:
 This is the image that stopped me. Shape, form, and shadow. Mmmm good.
 Last, shape and color although I'm not sure the boot print in the back
 Enjoy, comment or carp, torture flying chiuahua's, silver or electron, keep
taking pictures and have a wonderful week as those of us in N. America
celebrate the abundant fruits of this land.
