The Consequence of a Challenge: Chris Calohan


Chris,

This does it all for me. Stunning!

If I was a jealous person, I would hate you, LOL.

But instead, I am thrilled and proud to know you.

You see humanity and that is music to me!

This is a competition-winning image. Perfect timing, wonderful subject, transcends the actual facts so becomes iconic and timeless!

Kudos for such an exceptional work!

Asher

Oddly enough, this series was purchased by a local attorney who saw it as the evolution of the Civil Rights Movement. I see that, but I don't think I will ever see it as she does.

It was indeed a wedding at the beach and I heard her mother tell her not to get her dress wet...she paid two consequences. :-)

The sequence is good and I am happy you have sold it to a local attorney !

But the last image is phenomenal. Very dynamic and balanced. Well done Chris ! :)

Ah, Antonio...nice to see you again. It's nice to see/hear from everyone but there always special people in your life that bring an instant smile...You, Maggie and Asher are among that group.
