Great tyro 2014-06-10 4:47

Hi Mike,

Not often that we hear you quoting the great romantic poets in your notes, but the words of Wordsworth - or was it Lord Tennyson? - befit this candid photograph perfectly.

I was considering posting a picture almost exactly the same as this but yours is so very much better than mine: I didn't manage to include the light coming in through the distant windows and that really does add depth to the image as well as adding to the mystery of what, exactly, might be hiding in the darker corners of that room behind the glass of the window. Nice reflections of sky in the windows too.

Very well seen and taken with lovely vibrant colours, good composition and exquisite detail and sharpness.


Kind Regards,


P.S. Mais qui est l'étranger? Est-ce Claude?

Default To tyro: Non, ce n'est pas Claude

Il s'agit d'une référence au livre d'Albert Camus L'etranger - ou en anglais, The Outsider - d'un homme émotionnellement détaché du monde, à l'extérieur en regardant vers l'intérieur.
