I, too was considerring the hotdog.

I found it to be a sandwich, much like the Pita bread or "pita pocket"

Gyro, filaffel.

All of these count as they are designed to be hand-held. Using this logic a burrito, taco, or torta could be called a Mexican sandwich

A hot dog's not a sandwich, because it's a single piece of bread. Granted, it's sliced down the middle, but still one piece of bread.

A hamburger could arguably be called a sandwich, because after all, a sloppy joe is a sandwich, and that's just a hamburger that fell apart.

It's the two pieces of bread that defines the sandwich, not what's in the middle.

You could have three slices of bread and correctly call it a bread sandwich -- I should know because my brother used to eat those all the time! Of course, he'd slap a little mayonnaise in there for effect.

I think Ginger would make a better sandwich than MaryAnn!

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

It's one of my own photographs

Believe me, you don't have to beg! I've been a photographer for many years now, and I've had exhibitions of my photographs all over the country. I sell my photos through dealers and galleries. I'm always happy to talk about my pictures!

A lot of times I just go out and wander around with my camera, and take pictures of things I think look odd or interesting.

The picture you asked about was taken in a parking lot, in suburban Detroit, which had a rusting roof over it. For some reason the roof had a rectangular hole built into it. I have no idea why someone would build a hole into a roof, but there ya go! Anyway, I took the picture one sunny day because I liked the contrast of the pretty blue sky and the skanky, rusting metal. Looking at the picture after it was processed I became more interested in it, since it had a powerful metaphorical quality to me--one of hopefulness in a bleak situation, or "sunshine on a cloudy day," or something like that.

But, the picture can also have sinister qualities, too. Sometimes, when I'm in an especially bad mood, the picture looks like the view up through the trapdoor in a gallows, if you know what I mean? So, to me, the picture is complex, and mysterious, and metaphorical. Which is a lot to get in a photograph. I certainly don't get that much every time!

Also, the contrast of colors makes for an interesting pictorial design--warm/cool color contrast, etc.

So, it's one of my favorite photos. In fact, I have a large print of it right over my desk.

If you'd like to see more of my photos, this link will take you to a few of my favorites, along with some stories about how/why they were taken:

Thanks for the comments, and thanks for looking!
