Art Begets Art

Yesterday, a nice little comment popped up on one of my flickr photos:

So, thanks to bandman614 for the fine work. I think the original photo really was only a kick start. There’s a fine line between inspiration and copying and he is very much on the right side of it. He managed to make something his own, something original – all he needed was an idea and I’m happy I could supply it.
