Thumbling is a German fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm. A poor childless peasant couple wishes for a child "no matter how small" aloud. Seven months later the wife has a small child "no longer than a thumb" which they call "Thumbling" and who becomes a "wise and nimble creature." Thumbling as he grows wishes to help his father in the chores so one day asks if he can lead their horse to where his father is working by sitting in the horse's ear and giving it directions. As Thumbling performs this chore, two strange men notice the horse being led by a loud voice, and when they find out the voice belongs to a person sitting in the horse's ear, ask the peasant if they can buy Thumbling to "make a fortune" in exhibiting the little man. Thumbling convinces the peasant to take the money and leaves with the men by sitting on the brim of one of the men's hats. Then after a while Thumbling tricks the men into letting him down and he goes to hide in a mouse hole...

Fascinating high contrast B&W, Korkut, with a wonderful title and analogy. Wonderful dominant foreground, with the young boy perfectly placed in the frame. Thanks!

like I said elsewhere, this is such a good shot! good use of the structure and texture to bring attention to the kid. Could see this in print...by the way, do you print your images as well?

good composition, playing with an human (this little boy) and the geometry that seems to crush him.
