Phone Home
Phone Home by I Nancy, on Flickr

I’ve been out twice now with my Olympus PEN E-PL2 micro 4/3rds camera and so far so good. This image is a triptych of 3 pay phones I found while walking around downtown LA. I was working out an “homage” assignment for Martin Bailey Photography and I got the idea to do something in the style of Andy Warhol. What would Warhol have done with a digital camera. Originally this was entered as a quad-polytych, much more a Warhol approach. It was requested, however, that I remove it from the assignment because no “composites” were allowed. As I then prepared the image for other purposes (i.e. the local camera club) I decided that it was stronger as a more traditional triptych. It is a bit of an eye teaser, but these are three separate phones, taken at three separate places.

    Very much an eye teaser. I’m not the biggest fan of composites like this but it has an odd feel that for some reason i like. Thanks for sharing.
