Vigilant

Embracing our new Republic.

*Just a quick note; in the dark days to follow, I may be posting images that carry a darker undertone. I'm not concerned about offending anyone, I'm an artist. ;)

Excellent, you can try and disturb if you like...
January 21st, 2017

January 21st, 2017  
I like it. Well staged.
January 21st, 2017  
Strong image.
January 21st, 2017  
A very powerful image
January 21st, 2017  
Great shot! love your tags lol
January 21st, 2017  
you do you.
January 21st, 2017  
At least you are being politically correct.
January 21st, 2017  
No jungle clip?

Love it.

Very powerful image but scary too!

Good image, I think the whole world is worried.
On a lighter note this may make you chuckle, the BBC had the wrong subtitles for the inauguration
Google it :)

Very interesting and quizzical - the oil lamp and chair are nostalgic - the man with gun is contemporary - it has a cozy look - a cozy look of a man with a weapon. How intentional were your choices? Why this type of lamp, this type of chair for this shot? This is a selfie - is this your gun - is it contemporary or more obsolete gun?

Lighting setup is good. Yes dark days. But today is my birthday and I'm scheduled to March. In the rain. Weighing my options. Cake? March?
January 21st, 2017  
Excellent and very appropriate (and great lighting)
January 21st, 2017  
yup, that's totally what it'll take now....

Great photo - but rather less dark and disturbing that the inauguration speech. Powerful photo, especially for us in the UK who do not have the right to bear arms.
January 21st, 2017  
I can understand you wanting to post darker photos.

It is dark and disturbing but then so is much of what is happening in our world today.
January 21st, 2017  
Love the darkness, it feels as is the division in the world is becoming more open and more vocal. reminds me of some of the better dystopian books I've read .

@bfairfield Sometimes I just get an idea in my head and stir it around until it "feels right." In this case, I guess the older items might harken to a day in the past when America used to be great (trying to tie into Trump's slogan to Make America Great Again), and the man (me) represents a modern-day civilian trying to figure this out using the logic that got Trump elected. As to the gun, yes it is mine and it's fully functional. It is a Kalashnikov AK-47; probably the most widely-used weapon in modern conflicts all around the globe. I thought it fitting, because the man in the photo feels he has now reluctantly joined the ranks of those who may be required to fight for their beliefs. Maybe? ;)

At least they didn't take our guns;). Powerful indeed.
