For those who would like to know a little more about the book the I feature in my entry this month, here's some more snaps. The book can be found (and still bought, 1 copy left) here:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Elliott-Erwitt- ... erwitt+xxl

Front As you can see, the book comes in a luxurious box.

Autograph Of course, at this price, the book is signed.

Large prints The prints in this book are very large, you really need to sit back to take it all in. Superb quality though. Not all pictures are double-page spreads by the way, plenty are printed on single pages.

Thanks Bjorn! I took a few shots that day looking for a similar juxtaposition. Others were better composed, but I was struggling to get a balance between depth of field and freezing motion in the difficult lighting.

It's a good thing "On Assignment" is back on top of the page just as it was some time ago - it's more jumping into the visitors' eyes that way. :o

As perhaps indicated by my previous comment, Kimchi's entry is my favorite also. But there are many other great shots this month, so it will be exciting to see who is going to win. Good luck everyone!
