closing the showroom by claytes closing the showroom by claytes
grand avenue. chicago, illnois.

taken on my bike ride home from work. this place is always open so late i don't understand it. a huge furniture store in the middle of nowhere, basically. cheap rent, i guess.


starting to put watermarks on my images from now on, even though i think it ruins the image. also not going to submit very good copies of my images... just much compressed jpeg. you can never be too careful. or too paranoid! :)

I love the pole in the middle that breaks up the composition, it may have looked a little linear without that,
Other then that...nice exposure / and well spotted :]

i hate people with watermarks. they distroy their own work and make people, for example me, dislike this this pictures. look at all the great atrists. how would a gogh look like if there would be sprayed a huge "VAN GOGH" on it? but its your discission, i will not show my pictures with watermakrs , but my images are not that popular like yours :D

haha well your point is not very valid considering painters such as van gogh DID in fact sign their names on their work.

i sense you are being sarcastic here, but it is so dry that i myself am even having a tough time catching it. if you are serious, then, well, see my point above!! :)

it should be sarcastic, or do you think a three-quarter muffin like me could be serious?
and by the way van gogh did a little sign in edge of the pictures and not a great signature all over the painting

watermark is just a term i guess. it is see-thru .. perhaps as something becomes when water is dropped on it. thus, water mark ??

i do not understand French EVER! :) huh huh we we

Damned!!
I was earning money with your pictures here in Spain! What shall I do now??? That's the end!!!! :P

Yes we all should do that, but you always have the original to win the trial.... So if I see some Clayton Hauck in a Newsweek cover, i will tell you...and we go 50-50. Same if you see some Drivingyou in any National geographic i missed :)

yes, watermarks are necessary for pictures like this, that someone could use;
it's not like painting, with which you earn selling the original pieces.

Anyway being the signature so external you don't avoid crop.
Look at magnumphotos.com to see how much paranoid a photographer should be ;)
