Plays on Words : These are pictures involving word associations or plays on words.  I haven't advanced yet to the level of picture composites, either from assembled objects in a single frame, or assembled frames.  Mostly these are images that I come across in daily life, unplanned, whose embedded word play occurs to me at the time, or more commonly, much later.

I hope you enjoy them.

Images that constitute what I consider to be true metaphors, and not plays on words, are in a separate gallery.  If interested use the link below.  I'm not knocking wordplay in pictures!  I love the ones that persons much more skilled at it than I have been posting in this category.  I just wanted to separate the two types of "metaphortography" in my own offerings.

Photo Art : I love to experiment with unusual lighting, angles and reflections. Here are some of my favourite results to date. A few images have be photoshopped, however most rely on observation and subtle adjustments to create the desired effect. "Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art". - Ansel Adams
