    I could be stoopid, but I am sure that has an incredibly in depth meaning that I don’t get!

    It is however playing with my eyesight and sending me la la… pretty quick trigger finger Nando :-)

    Thanx Kathleen… I suppose that’s a compliment, isn’t it?
    Anyway, as for the “incredibly in depth meaning”, let me know if you find one. I, however, took the shot because I liked the intersection of “movement methods” – bus, bicycle, walking (zebra cross, pedestrian light and sign) – and also the “directions” (bicycle eastbound, bus westbound, zebra-cross northbound).
    Maybe I should have explained this in the description field, but I find, above all, that it’s a nice image :)

    Nice juxtiposition with the walking signs etc. Good catch.

    descriptions can be over-rated I think at times… I like to talk… I just meant I wasn’t sure what the title meant in relation to the image… NOW i get it…

    as for what I mean by la la… I just meant that the visual illusion of the extreme and blurry foreground played with my mind when I look at the depth of field… the whole thing makes for movement…. my eye keeps coming forward then moving back… and that you were very lucky to capture the bike when it was moving so fast… centre frame too…

    thanks for the elaboration… :-)

    wonderful image and gallery. you certainly have a keen eye and mind to satisfy your strive for the goals you have set…. love the angle you see the word. it looks quite appealing. about this one: combination of statics and dynamics makes it special and catchy for the eye, not distracted by colors at that.

    Indeed. Isn’t it lovely when things just come together right in front of your lense?! Great shot.

    Brilliant capture – definitely a Henri Cartier-Bresson moment. It could easily be one of his ….you have a great ‘eye’
