Peanut Gallery : This Thing On.....?


Ok, here's a familiar scenario. You do something so embarrassing it hurts. You weren't thinking, you overlooked a few details and your face starts to burn. You pick yourself up and turn to discover the gallery of peanuts that are watching you. This while you start fabricating all the excuses, then practicing them really quickly in your mind. Then you look out and no-one is really there. And of the three dudes who are there: one is reading the paper, the other has bad eyes and only paid for the cheap seats to your life, the other one brought his laptop and is clearly more interested in some Andy Sandberg video on Hulu and has like built some huge desk because he is clearly not entertained enough to sit still. Geez louise! C'mon! This is gold! You just missed it! Then you feel even more foolish for thinking that your fumble was going to garner some huge response. Hmmm. Anyways....this isn't some veiled comment on lonlieness or anything...I just needed a narrative for this picture.

not only do you have a way with a camera but you have an amazing ability to put a story to your work. Great job Mike.

Reminds me of the scenes on CSPAN of someone blowhard pontificating to no one, save the public record.

I sure enjoy your use of light, contrast and depth of color. (sounds like I know what I am doin huh!) Not really.

Do you use Adobe LIght Room?

Nice work, nice writing.
