Nice shot. Love the selective saturation. This shot reminds me that Roger Waters was performing in Bombay yesterady and although I always dreamed of going to one of his performance, I couldn't.

Happy new year to you Poramit!

It would be totally ironic if the three little pigs were looking in the window of a butchers shop! 8)

Great sculpture but the pig should be gold since its the year of the golden pig.
I really like the selective pink on this anyway.

Brilliant use of selective colour. Awesome shot!

Nice one. I don't usually like monochrome and colour together, but it seems somehow appropriate here.

Still said...

Really a funny one, a pink touch of humor... :-)

2007 is the Chinese Red Female Pig Year - Red being equivalent to the element of Fire, and Female because 2007 is a Yin Fire year.

The Pig is the 12th and final sign of the Chinese Zodiac and the New Year begins on the 18th February. 2006 was the year of the Fire Dog and was a year of structure. This year will focus on making things comfortable and finishing off unfinished projects and achieving goals. The year of the Fire Pig is meant to be auspicious bringing good fortune and prosperity. It is an excellent year to marry and have children. However it will not be a peaceful year, wars and natural disasters, particularly those connected to fire and water such as bushfires, volcanos, floods and tsunamis will occur causing the economy to blow hot and cold. Rising real estate prices will continue and homeowners and builders will do well. Fire Pig is well known for luck in money and speculation, particularly for those who share and do good deeds for the poor.
