It's gonna take a lot of love (Freudian Slip) by 

its gonna take a lotta love to change the way things are
its gonna take a lotta love or we wont get too far
so if you look in my direction
and we don’t see eye to eye,
my heart needs protection and so do I
(Neil Young)

Yea, I know the song has nothing to do with the image but I hear the music in my head whenever I think about it. Maybe it was playing somewhere when I was there. All I remember was getting excited chasing this shoot. So excited that my hands shook as I pressed the shutter release. Damn that long black I just had. With all the jagged light and blurs, I think I just created art.

Captured with the old reliable 18-55mm crappy kit lens mounted on my battle worn Canon Rebel XT (350d), St George, Sydney

    I don’t know about art, but you created a picture that jumped out from my Image feed and I just had to look at it enlarged. I wasn’t disappointed, on the contrary!

  • thanks for noticing… i’m so glad you were not disappointed ;-) rob

    Fabulous image – if I close my eyes, I can see the people continue to walk and live – of course what I make up for them – it’s raining and cold and reminds me of scenes from any old bw movie. Thanks you. Nice work. :-)

  • … thanks for dropping by and for your kind thoughts… interesting observation… never thought of imagining it as an old movie scene until you mentioned it… i like that and i think it’s cool… appreciate your comment very much… cheers – rob

    See? You did create art; everyone says so.
    Stuff your ego in the old kit bag and smile : this is good. ;-)

  • thanks for admonishing me ;-) my problem is that the old kit bag has lots of excess baggage (LOL)… help i need Dr Freud.

    seriously, thanks for your kind thoughts, margot… cheers!
