as an artist, the power of collaboration can never be under-stated. i do not get the opportunity to do much of it. a friend, nique88888, is an iphoneographer and has been chasing me about writing some random words inspired by his images – the pictures are inspiring, the problem has been with the writer. recently, nique twitpic’d the chess.master and, without much thought, i scribbled a couple of words. he seemed to like them and did me honour of posting my words on his site. i am doing the same with his image and, hopefully, we will have a lot more in future. your thoughts would be appreciated. i think he takes some amazing pictures.
