The younger man speeding forward...the older man stepping aside and looking back. Centuries pass.

It's easy to make this stuff up after the fact ;) I was going for something a bit different, but i didn't have the patience to look through all my pics after I saw these three.

I'm hoping at least 1 person, other than myself, will appreciate the triptych squared.

OK you win.

no really...it's squared ;) 3 x 3 = 9 ...3 x 3 x3 ...would be quite a feat. But I'm glad after all this time you still like it. Unfortunately, I think we both need to get out more ;)

Just found this response to a comment I made years ago; seems like another life entirely.
I appreciated the fact that the triptych was 'squared' in terms of overall image geometry. My thinking in saying cubed was that all of the three images in the trip are in fact trips in themselves (thanks to the tree and the lamp post). And thus 'cubed'. It made a cartoon strip effect that I loved back then, and have lost no affection for in the years since. In fact I admire it even more. Absence does indeed make the hard go Fonda, or whatever it is that they say.

Also very good.

Nice and crisp with a story.

Love the idea, the background is really distracting though :( I think it could've been improved with like a brick building or something as the background.

I love this, 10
It's simple, clever and almost surreal
Good luck, I hope others feel the same way I do!

I find this very intriguing and amusing. Not a fan of the vertical placement but it works well here. 9

This is in many ways one of the more interesting triptychs, conceptually, in this challenge. There's a palpable sense of immediacy, of the passage of time and life. Technically it [i]appears[/i ]flawed, with the bright vertical haloing on the right edges, and the tiny, disheveled wedge of gutter showing in each image is oddly attention-getting, but overall this leaves a certain gritty, homespun texture to the whole that's appealing to me. Bumping up, and good luck!

There are quite a few good pictures out there, but this one is definitely a contender. It's crisp, clean, colorful, and very well composed. Good luck.

I love the urban lanscape here. The mosque/temple in the background describing wealth and then the grafiti and the wire fense describing a different subculture altogether. A get juxapostion.

This is a series with a lot of personality. I love the the tree and the lamp post naturally divide each image into three parts. It's a little bit hard to focus on the men because there is so much else going on in the photo. But when you do their actions are really humorous.

this is great - and looks just huge (640x640?)... the lighting is odd - in a good way. This is enjopyuable and i wish it were a little bigger! :) 8

just add the thought/speak bubbles and this is an instant comic-stip. the colours are real vibrant and work well together. good work.

I really like the progression of these photos. So simple but there's something really cool about it. The photos are a tad bit busy but not bad. Good job.

I really like this image has a great sequence and title to match. Makes me want to see more.

This one hurts because of the size restrictions. It looks great to me, but I wish I could see the faces of the men.

I'll be curious to see how this scores and your comments - i considered a vertical idea but was afraid the voters would slam me for it. Nice concept, perhaps more border would help. THe more i look at it the more it looks the three movie stills.

Pictures within pictures. This could do well as a nine-tych (breaking each of the pictures down into three). (I just made up this word!)

I really enjoyed this. It's a very short, curious story.
