…I thought they’d never end.
And they haven’t!
Just when I think my patience is well self-managed and my eye for photography is on the right track, a link or email gets sent that reaches out and smacks me in the nose saying ‘you have a long way to go buck-a-roo’. So much is the case with Michael Paul Smith, an artist in his own right with a knack for drawing gasps, making heads shake, and causing rapid eye blinking in amazement (maybe a little bit of disbelief as well).
Micheal’s work makes my photo collection of real antique autos, vintage signs, and old buildings look rather silly. (check out my “silly”, “drive-by” photo shooting of the Tarrant County Courthouse from just this morning, before I got the email about this Smith guy BTW, why don’t ya. I doubt I will be contacted any time soon, having such amateur main street photos. But the coincedence of the subject photo with the email this morning is…well…noteworthy?). Keep this in mind – he does his work at 1/24th scale and with a camera only. No computer or software trickery is involved.
I think you will quickly appreciate his modelling skills, and his photography, and his sense of perspective. Michael is an absolute incredible talent. He is also my newest, bestest Flickr bud.
