China2006: hidden 10 by maifaun China2006: hidden 10 by maifaun
we went to the mountains to pay our respects to our ancestors...their tombstones were really deep in the mountains..quite a journey but i loved it...
anyways i found this pool ball in the ground i dug it up and it was the number 10..my fav # LOL
i took this photo..i should have kept the ball itself but i decided to leave it where i found it....
i really dont kno why it was up there...friend suggested that someone went up there with a sock and put the ball inside to beat someone else with it LOL! i dont wanna think that :(

Aww. The thing's all scratched and beat-up and cracked... and abandoned on a mountain side? Strange, but neat. I love the texture though. The blue really stands out from the rest of the ground. It's nice.

That's so weird... why would anyone put a billiard ball on a mountain top? Like who thinks of that?

And to think that sometimes pool balls used to explode when they hit each other...

I think that this picture is very kitsch. Nice work.

What I want to know, is what prompted you to dig *up* the strange white object.

maifaun Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2006

I've totally heard stories of people being dragged up to those mountains, robbed, stripped, beaten and left there to die.

:(

Nice shot though.

i think the contrast is fine the way it is - desaturated and real. dA does tend to love supersaturated eye-burning photos though.

like how you really made this a PHOTOGRAPH and not a snapshot of "oh, a poolball in the middle of nowhere - cooL!"

LOL! yeah i noticed that too!!! mehehehe!

but yeah...lol! thanks :D i love this shot actually ;) i wasnt expecting to find one in the mountains ;P
