ERWITTICISMS
« on: June 07, 2010, 02:27:44 PM »
A 'made up' word that resulted from a discussion with a friend after looking at several images of people, places and things and deciding that there should be a name for pictures that fitted into the genre of Elliott Erwitt. This resulted in searching through my catalogues to see how many images would loosely approach such a description. With the opportunity to enter a book of such images into a competition I decided to take the plunge and Blurb them and add a gallery of Erwitticisms to my web site.

I had already entered the word in my blog and when Googling it I was surprised that it only registered one record of the word, that of mine! :tup:

You can see what I mean if you go to
http://www.alanabercrombieimages.co.uk and look at the gallery section marked Erwitticisms.

Blurb location is http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1279794.

P.S. I didn't win the book competition. :'(

You can't win them all!  ;D

Cracking series of photos as usual and well balanced, unlike some of the subjects.  :tup:

Excellent work as usual Alan. I have no idea what came across the judges - a clear winner in anyone's eyes.

Judges, IMHO, often have favourites and they always win, no matter what!

Cracking series!
