Last one from the reinterpretation series for a while. Will try to get out of the archives and into unpublished work now that I’ve finally brought my desktop computer back to life.

Another from the reinterpretation series. Not sure which master painted this, but it was from a really impressive, out-of-the-way private collection in Florence. This was before I was in the habit of snapping the original work’s information after taking the photo.

Some political themed links:
- Another really interesting article in the Texas Observer by my friend Patrick: ‘Private Trauma: Preston Wheeler went to Iraq to make a fortune, but came home a wounded man.’
- From Clare: The terrifying ‘Raining McCain‘ video that apparently hit the internet tipping point this weekend. I see it’s picked up 120,000 views since Clare sent me the link on Friday. Question: could a really slick viral marketing company pull something like this off, or is it just luck?
- A pretty damn similar take on Abe that I came across on Flickr. Not surprising, I guess.

Whenever a museum lets me take a camera in, I’ll try this with statues I particularly like. It’s good for focusing on the details of the works in a new way.
