Thanks, Michael. I decided to go with a straight-up B&W photo this week. The only editing is some slight curve adjustment and the addition of a little tone to enhance the depth.

I'm honoured to be included in this weeks showcase end tickled pink that Yamamoto's Awakening was chosen as the lead image. Many thanks to Krapoz (Giueseppe Capozzo), this week's guest curator, and to +BP Juxt!
 
1000 Words Showcase by Giuseppe Krapoz

Yamamoto's Awakening by Alan Kastner

Yamamoto suddenly found the answer he sought as he raised his head during that long walk home from the bar…”. This line of description included with my Flickr posting sketches the broad hint of a storyline intended to convey a moment of realization. Beyond that suggestion, I encourage viewers to interpret what might be occurring in that instant. While this is a somewhat introspective piece, I prefer to serve at most as a not-completely-trustworthy narrator and keep my own reading to myself. To my thinking, such an approach allows each individual to freely interpret and envision their own story. - +alan kastner

Check the other amazing photos from this weeks Showcase at Juxt (www.wearejuxt.com) Website

There are many photographers who have joined the We Are Juxt Flickr group, 1000 Words. Some of the photographers and images aren't shared on any other networks. If you are interested in joining the 1000 Words Flickr group, find us on Flickr

With the permission of the artists, once a week the group will present this showcase with the image and a description of the work. Whether a story or an edit process, you will definitely enjoy this showcase along with the other Juxt showcases on Sunday. Sunday's are about the Showcase at Juxt. Let's celebrate this community, the artists, and the art together. Let's have fun

This chap was so absorbed in his phone, it gave whole new meaning to the reality distortion field.

What a way to close out the year. I'm particularly looking forward to interviewing Alan for week 10.

For next weeks submission we will ask you to submit your best Photo of 2011 for a little retrospective...

As usual it was an absolute pleasure looking at all the submissions this week. Next week we might grant a few days extension due to possible New Years Day hangovers interfering with Submissions...

+Michael N Sutton & myself wish you all a fantastic 2012. See you next year! ;)
