"Safe" Keys....to wind up this series on Keys...

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 4 September 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

In order that valuables are kept safely, locking them in a Safe is what works for most people....
NOT for me...I have this natural ability to misplace keys or maybe they have a mind of their own & decide to disappear...

The only way around for me is to the leave the keys in the lock.
That begs the question - "Why have a safe in the first place?"

Dilwenn from Bordeaux, France

It is good for the thieves :))

I work on an "All or Nothing" basis. My money, credit cards, house keys, carkeys are all in one wallet. That way I can't move more than 3 feet without having to grab the whole lot....It works, until you loose the lot!
Great shot, great series! Well thought through, interesting, well shot....Now I'm looking forward to the next series...this AM3 thing is hard work-isn't it!
