    I am sure the telephone has been photoshopped out as he was actually on some helpline…

    Sitting in the bathroom, using the Ped Egg on one’s feet can do that.

    Succeed in believing that you will not fail.
    Use diligence and determination to set your sail.

    When the weather is stormy and the waters are rough,
    In the moment of peril the strong get tough.

    Whenever life presses you down a bit.
    Stand up and shout, "I will not quit!"

  36. Sanjay Mahawar

    Hey what a life that was…Waiting for another life for now…

    Jesus! Is nowhere safe from the insipid dribblings of self promoting SPAMMERS…!?
    I bet the above woman looks nothing like like that image without all that cheap, shiny tat on and without all that cement on her face and without those oh so obviously enhanced tits. And that internationally travelled Elvis lip-curl?.. Don’t make me laugh love, y’can’t kid a kidder. Infact, I bet you actually live in Swindon or some’t dontcha.

    I want to say "eerie" but the more I look at it, the deeper the image gets and goes beyond eerie. I wonder what, more than a hundred years ago the photographer was doing with this photo. Did he have any idea this would one day be considered art?

    or that this image would end up on flickr and receive 1,999 Favs, and surely more to come?

    The man had feared that his death would be painful, but it came so peacefully. As he slipped away, in his favourite Bentwood chair, his only regret in life, was having alienated his children. How long would he sit, in the bathroom of his old English cottage, was his last thought, as he was passing……

    Beautiful picture, conjures up so many ideas as evidenced by the viewers and their comments.

    Now then; take a deep breath………
    Personally speaking the adding of multiple boxes and notes works marvelously on a number of levels. There’s the level of obvious frivolity and humor which ties in nicely with the original theme of the image itself ie. a bit of a laugh. There’s also a privacy factor in that eventually, the sheer volume of notes/boxes will render the image impossible to see and thus affording the subject a little privacy, dignity and respect because let’s face it, setting up a human skeleton in this way doesn’t exactly display a huge amount of respect for the dead. That is of course unless the ‘sitter’ knew well the ‘placer ‘ and indeed asked for that picture to be set up for him. (Doubtful but possible all the same)
    There’s also the fact that the adding of notes is adding to the impact of the image from a contemporary artistic viewpoint. Some of the comments are very thoughtful and left-of-center, the massive volume of opinions somehow gives the image a whole new dimension otherwise forgotten, unseen and unimagined by the original creator. I personally would be ‘chuffed to bits’ if one of my own images took on such vibrant attention……..Enough justification prattle from me. If you’ve read this far, thankyou for your patience. If you’ve not read this far then you won’t be reading this bit, in which case I can safely say that those who don’t like the adding of multiple notes are just Farty-piss-pimple-nosed-shit-stains. ?
    Add a note in the name of art and respect I say.

    How you can tell if it’s a male or female is by the size of the hips/pelvis, women have/a wider hips/pelvis so… this skeleton is a man.

    I sent an email using your website’s contact form earlier today, because I’ve so thoroughly enjoyed browsing around the photos, and am interested in maybe using the images in various ‘Wikimedia Foundation’ projects like Wikipedia ?

    hope it gets through ok, and thanks heaps regardless for the simply stunning imagery!
