I first shot a similar image of this HTC cell phone covered in a semi transparent blue goo about a year and a half or so ago. I was digging around in my archives over the weekend and remembered I had photographed this same phone covered in chocolate syrup. How or why I chose to not work on these images back then, I have no idea.
After creating the final composite, I sent the image out to a couple of different friends, associates, and the girlfriend. She suggested that I add the popsicle stick to the image. Her reasoning was simple, “This picture makes me want ice cream”.
