    Like the simple framing. The shadow adds nice effect and choice of vertical frame is perfect.

    No I was not itching to write, probably a state of mind, am trying to remember a dream which recurred as a child, flashes of light, or a continuous flow of light, condensed in time, frozen, holding some unknown state of matter within it and I walk through, morphing through time, not the kind that we might have seen in a sci fi which would be definite, measurable and quantified, the kind of light and canvas that is more subjective, vagaries of complete bliss, more than orgasmic. I have seen this light before only in a dream. And I now see it here. The driftwood is a burst of reality that transforms and quantifies everything which eventually breaks that dream.

    How did it feel.

    Hugs.

    i'd say great eye contact here wih the sculpture and the face. blurred faces can result in a deamonish avatar of any person and can make intereting photos. i have tried to make portriats with low shutter, even pretty girls can look like deamons, i will try and post it next but the mods might delete it.

    what if our eyes were not providing light information to the brain but sending frames per second to brain that could have long exposures, we could see the deamonish avatar of people every now and then.

    what if..

    hey, you are back and i can see the dream already. i still maintain, if you were breathing centuries back, you would have loved painting these scenes. i am always concerned with the final output of the photo and the light hss that touch of surrealim.

    show me the streets..

    i am not a fan myself with the tungstens as street lamps, it ruin most of my shots keeping the white balance in sunlight. too warm makes me uncomfortable, youve controlled it well here except for the belly..but preserves the realism, i am seeing a street scene as it is.

    you script and document daily life in a very unique manner.

    hey, long time jerzy, stayed away too long, missed quite alot, yes i have a soft corner for this pp, i was explained the technique of making them, francis tried it with quite alot of posts. very tricky with the dominant white against the burning highlights, makes a very 'fresh' photo. but apart from the pov i would prefer it if the focus was in the pages and not maybe the wall behind..looks sharper than the rest of the image.]

    near year greetings bro, be good.

    your invisibility to the subjects makes the frame, they look intense and engaged. a lovely double korkut, from the conversion seems she was wearing a red stripped tshirt..

    what is it with doctors keeping photography to get relax their nerves, or do you have nerves at all ? - but i wish you made the frame in the camera and not cropped it. was it just to get it in line with the rule of thirds ? - i'd say the photo was made anyway..

    i am thrity, brink of re-arranging my life, staring at a fresh year, few friends, so i know what this photo means..

    great year ahead arpita

    somehow drawn to the feet, from the lampshade without the bulb, and the moss along the walls. i dont know, how about the subject approaching the frame, more of the alley and not the end of it. not a fan of subject leaving the frame. but enough to keep me interested, say my own little story, hear yours too..

    Believe it or not, my first visuals of cobblestones was in a illustrated bedtime reading book for children, maybe when i was 5. yes alibaba and the forty theives, or country mouse and town mouse..even now i recollect the illustrations, a night scene, under moonlight, the stones shining and characters with long beard and pointed nose..

    this is different, this is reality, i like the 3d effect in the photo, the bottom half especially, the book, the bible or, oh i forgot to mention..i have the entire series of the Arabain Nights by Sir Richard Burton (translation), the series that was banned worldwide..

    arabian nights..why do i feel like drifting from reality

    good weekend to you, sip it hot..

    they were following me all over the streets, forget the cats, the evil eyes..but the best part was i asked this local the first time, and with a broad smile he said "it bring you bad luck, we have it all over city, very good, very good !! only 2 turkish lira..."..

    i couldn't react to that but things got better with some help he managed around..

    great shot doc, not the kind of surf shots we would normally see, i mean the red and the tone on the hand does the trick for me, very chique surfing shot i should say. lucky to catch the form of the man against the highlight part of the waves else the photo would not have worked..
