I think I am done shooting.

I'm not sure I want a satisfying ending. The shoot was about oppression and rebellion. It does not always turn out well.

I liked only three nails. Odd number, two small one big. It leave questions. Plus in all the other shots the hammer head is pointed the other way. As the nails take over more and more the hammer gets flipped.

And as I said I am done with shooting this, at least for now, what was flowing easily is now work.

I have a month before the digital go in a portfolio showcase and three months before the B&W needs to be done. I'm going to let this rest.

Thanks for the input.

Time for me to figure out what shots and what order.

Wow... this is seriously awesome! Love the creativity! The ending should be the graveyard or something :D

I know I'm resurrecting the dead with this thread. But I custom made frames built form materials I used in the pics. The corner of the frames are laced with the same twine from the pics.

I have this series hanging in a gallery now. It is my first solo show.The attached pic is from the hanging. The extra tables and junk have been cleared out. The building the gallery is in was a bank built in the 1830s.

The response has been very good. It was well reviewed in both papers. I just hope they sell now :)

Congratulations on getting this series a well-deserved place in public.

Love, love the series. I would had gone darker with the ending, actually breaking and splintering the handle as an expression of ultimate sacrifice to be free. Congrats on the gallery show.

The series is the original 8 shots. There is not happy ending. I just don't see it.

Amen to that! I'm not one to ever mess with an artists vision.

Didn't you end with the swing set? That's a happy ending for the nails. No happy ending for the hammer, of course.

I never used the swing set past the test shot stage. Only those that have read this string have ever seen it.
