    Interesting shot! i really like your unique composition (thanks to whoever parked that bike… LOL) and am intrigued at you title, since you seem to have selective colored the most of the blue out of the photo… awesome!

  • thanks gail :P. you’re right, i did try to remove the blue, but it still shows in the license plate.

    I love that figure in the middle of the wheel. captures something about the Village and NYC. A mysterious poetry with a hard edge

  • that figure was indeed intended as part of the composition. i love your description “mysterious poetry with a hard edge.” i think it beautifully describes the new yorkers’ toughness coupled with their willingness to help when needed.

    Ce cycliste ne risque pas de repartir en trombe, mais plutôt en cahotant! Par contre, le titre “out of blues” ne serait-il pas mieux adapté? (De quoi je me mêle?)

  • je te prie d’excuser mon retard. je dirais que “out of the blue” ferait un bon titre. le titre “blue” reflète seulement l’atmosphère de la composition :-)
