a doll on a bike
two toys of our childhood were captured in this picture. When we all were young we wanted a bicycle. Many years ago there weren't many bicycles and only a few people had their own bike, that others used in order to learn how to ride. In the past, litte girls had only one doll and were very careful, so as not to destroy it. Nowadays, children have so many toys, that they don't appreciate. It seems that when you have quantities of things,you take them for graunted. Unfortunately, there will always be children who can hardly survive, due to the little food they have. Those children might never experince the pleasure of having a bike, a doll or even a toy. This is a good lesson to all of us, that we should learn to appreciate the happiness in the small moments and pleasures of our lives.

Belle photo emplie de poésie. L'image parle d'elle-même et avec talent.
Le noir et blanc est parfait pour restituer l'ambiance générale.

A lovely, quiet and quirky street scene. For me the monochrome choice works beautifully.

An image with a pleasant nostalgic mood to it and ideally suited to black and white. Very well composed and with excellent textural detail. I like it.

Wonderful nostalgic picture with lots of charm, so bespeaking of bygone times of a slower pace of life. Lovely indeed.
have a great sunday

a photo with a sad, nostalgic mood. b&w was a good choice and you managed the slight difference between greys and whites very well.

wow, an interesting one. Beautifully presented in vertical. Perfect choice of monochrome made it more attractive. A moody one.

Very attractive capture, a fine artistic scene in good b&w choice. Well seen, enjoy a nice evening.

quite nice composition indeed. beside, the thought of displaying such a corner from greece in b&w is commendable.

I think that many of the older generation would agree with your sentiments..
The choice of BW has helped to give the image a most endearing and timeless appeal with a very suitable range of tones.

Μια συνδιασμένη όμορφη γωνιά με αναμνήσεις από τα παλιά
Ωραία σύλληψη και σημείωση! Ειδικά το "ότι θα πρέπει να μάθουμε να εκτιμούμε την ευτυχία στις μικρές στιγμές και τις απολαύσεις της ζωής μας."

μια όμορφη εικόνα που περιέχει πολύ ελκυστικά και ενδιαφέροντα στοιχεία τα οποία συμπληρώνουν το ένα το άλλο και δημιουργούν ιστορίες. Η ιδέα της μονοχρωμίας ήταν εξαιρετική και την απέδωσες με μαεστρία. Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ η προοπτική, οι υφές, η ατμόσφαιρα, η προσμονή να κατευθυνθεί κάποιος προς το ποδήλατο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλή σου νύχτα,

Hello Constantino - You note is heartfelt and sincere and a very good accompaniment to this fine B&W shot which speaks of days gone by when life was slower-paced and small things were prized. A beautiful contribution to TE. Warm regards Rosemary

well, i'm glad this is just a doll because it was looking rather scary! haha
I like it when such fine photo's are created out of such simple subjects like this, a bike a doll and a white bg.
such charm and attractiveness here.
have yourself a great day
abmdsudi (32471) 2013-09-25 6:34
This looks classic, timeless and more powerful somehow in black & white, great inspiration and your ability to recognise what you have found and make the picture, and your note is meaningful full of content. Its an astute observation and my favourite word here is 'serendipity', the knack for making unexpected discovery that brings back our past memories represented by the two 'toys' which have the common bond ... The placement, lighting are spot on....but the main reason is admiration ...at the skill and superiority of such a picture, a well captured, My congrats.

Well presented, good optiuon with the B&w, interesting contrast, a good composition.
annjackman (15481) 2013-09-27 10:01
A nostalgic type of image very suitable for b/W. I like the textures and diagonal composition. Very well seen and taken.
Kind Regards, Ann
marina7 (7160) 2013-10-06 12:18
a very nice diagonal composition, stylish and attractive.
Maybe a little bit too white for my taste.
Thanks and best wishes!

I like the B&W treatment you applied in this picture, it fits well with the subject and the environment. Nice note, too.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent B/W tone/clarity, it's interesting and impressive to see the old house and the doll on a bicycle. It's a tasteful scenery. Nowadays, there are many toy/dolls, bicycle and games in daily life different from past days, as you note in here. They(children) have many selection for play tools now. Children had better be familiar with nature in my opinion.
