Using the strange power of speech ...
"I'm sure the ***** is an awesome sight to see in person, but on the back of a quarter?" Exactly! My customers seem to have trouble understanding where I'm going when I ask for the destination and size of a picture I'm about to make. I have some prints that look great at 3x4 feet which would look like two stripes of color on a 4x6", and there are plenty of limitations and considerations in-between. State quarters have more in common with Facebook profile photos and postage stamps than anything else. As you continue this excellent series it's become clear which states approved a design on a sheet of standard paper versus an ACTUAL SIZE mock-up. There's a whole different reality between a new State Seal for the Governor's podium or a flag, and a miniscule quarter.
"Excellent series"?You flatter me.
Flattery? Hardly. It's fun and different and when you get snarky I laugh. Find myself looking forward to the next review. Can I write one as a guest blogger, from a photographer's perspective? (Word verification = pophog)
Certainly. E-mail me at strangesanantonio("at" symbol)gmail(dot)com
