Great Edwin 2004-03-29 7:03

Very very nice picture Josh! I like everything in it, the composition and the square frame, choice of B/W, and the choice of subject. I really love how the left lady is countering in this composition with the camera man. Nice balance, the V-shape is even mirrored, namely the lines from the left lady's arm, going back upwards again from the table to the camera man. And about that Victory sign, didn't know that, thanks for sharing!

Default To Edwin: The 'V' Sign

The 'V' or Victory sign is suprisingly common in Asia. I remember growing up in Australia, it used to happen there as well, but no any more.

Here is another example (courtesy of Boof) of the V:

Well, generally speaking in the world of music, fashion, design and architecture some characteristic time specific styles return and find back their popularity again after several decades.

During time certain styles or flows react on eachother, resulting in something which becomes popular and contradictory to the previous "flow". And then, when it is time again to react on that new popularity it might as well happen that its result (a contradiction of a contradiction) resembles the first "flow" or "style"

Well Josh, perhaps it is simply time again for the victory sign to regain its popularity ;-)
