Six of Cups

Six of Cups

I’ve been trying to catch up with the male tarot cards lately, so I’ve done a few shoots of guys.

This one is Marcel on the Six of Cups. All of my sixes have the modern equivalent of suit item. It took me a long time to figure out what a modern cup would be, as drinking technology hasn’t really changed much over the last couple hundred years. But then my friend Katy recommended a simple disposable plastic cup and I knew that was perfect. I had wanted to do a street musician picture anyway, and I like how the saxophone kind of slightly mirrors the cup idea.

    Nicely done, Mav. Love the cup idea, and the sax is a great touch.

    Seen on my Flickr home page. (?)

    This one ranks high on my list of favorite cards. Classy. I can almost hear the pain.

    Loooks like one of the street musicians who set up on isolated corners of the French Quarter….Near real life.
