The Geographers' Table by tfavretto The Geographers' Table by tfavretto
This was shot inside an abandoned house on Mount Zion Road, roughly 14 km north of Bruce Mines, ON. I had wanted to take some photographs inside this house for quite some time, but there was nothing all that interesting in there to photograph aside from the house itself. So I brought along some items to use for this photo:

- a collapsible table that we had sitting around in our basement
- two chairs that I found in an abandoned shack a few days earlier
- a globe that I picked up at a garage sale for 25

tfavretto,

Thank you so much for allowing me to use your unique picture as a background for a surreal piece!

I sent you a note hoping you would be willing to allow me to enter it into a deviant art contest for art school.
ALso if you would give me permission to submit it to some galleries.

Here's the link:

Hope you like it.

Cool set-up! Matching colors (hey, the chair matches Brazil =P) and the title makes me think that the torn wallpaper spells the silhouette of a mountain range :D Great light, too, something very tranquil here.

Thank you very much. I'd call this 'rurexing' more than anything, though. No risk of junkies or homeless people in the country.
