    Very cool, this. A sort of Asian noir.
  • Mark K_NJ said:
    A first one and a great one! Very cool!

    PS: My IP 23 was my first one as well...too intimidated to jump into the pool before last night...but noir is a favorite movie/book topic of mine.

    (see in the IP 23 thread)

    Sharp sake. Very cool - love the visual themes.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Greg. Yep, a slight variation on the theme. I was going to use the Rapier, but it was just too long.

    Thanks Mark :) I really liked yours too (in fact I was going to do something very similar).

    I must say, I'm quite happy with it Melissa :) It's one of the first composed pictures I've done where I had a picture in my head before picking up the camera and felt the end result was strong enough to stand on it's own without supporting description.

    Thanks Horst.

    I can see why Misteriddles goes in for this style Greg, it's just so fun to setup and shoot.

    Yeah watch that first sip Mike ;-)

    interesting shot there david
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks Richard. It was fun to shoot. Given a few more props, I could have come up with several more that I had floating around in my head.
  • Margot- said:
    Hahaha...good thing I revisited this page. Your 'hai' made me laugh so loud, but I think my neighbors want to call the loony bin on me. (o^^o) Hmm...I wonder if they have Flickr access?
  • David de Groot said:
    :-) My Nipponese is quite limited I'm afraid Margot.
  • Margot- said:
    Hey, I like 'Nipponese' and I'm stealing it (with permission, of course)! (o^^o)
  • David de Groot said:
    hehehe :) I'm sure I've heard it before. I think pre-WWII Japan was generally known as Nippon, even to Westerners...
  • benefit of hindsight said:
    Nice image - makes you get in there and take a closer look!
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks David :) 'twas fun to shoot. I've always been a sucker for a good film noir style movie (who couldn't like a Bogart film?), so this was my little tribute.
