(Robinson was previously mentioned on Grand Text Auto, also in relation to “Carl.”) While the trails are alternate choices, as in the original ???Carl,??? and while both have a central figure for whom all roads lead towards death, the experience of viewing ???What If??? is not the experience of making choices.

Steve,

Yours is the only one I’ve seen actually - I came across it directly while reading the entire “heavily-annotated” pool looking for examples of interesting annotation - the “several photos” I mention above were your series of three.

Although I hadn’t noticed until now that it was the same author, I’ll be discussing another another (attributed) photo of yours from the heavily-annotated pool this Wednesday - faux box.

A lot of people have blogged this photo, but your comments really stand out. I've also found some people have republished my photo without attribution (e.g., in a Argentina newspaper). And some of those made it back to flickr. Do you know if someone else posted original shots of the master plan?
