Raw is wonderful. So is your shot, made by the pigeon.
Thank you for the comment. I had to wait five minutes for it to take off but the result is about what I was after.
Top shot Mark….. atmospheric simplicity x
Ta sticky this was taken about ten yards from ‘Liverpool 26’. The light was great.. a storm was brewing.
wooOOT! stunning capture sweetheART ;} happy hippy hugglez
Thank you valzart.
everything about this one pulls at the viewer … the grass on the roof is so unexpected … the wonderfully worn window tells its own story of times gone by … but the perfect capture of the two doves is a beautiful metaphor for life, isn’t it?? This one says sooooo much!!!!!! Fabulous!!
Thank you Lois. Cracking comment.
I think I started following your work with Liverpool 31 – but I could be mistaken. I love your ability to work within the world of mono/duo tones with the same mastery as is evident here in a piece in color. It’s a gorgeous composition, and with no effort satisfies multiple genre’s, esp. that of wabi-sabi, or the genteel poverty of the process of disintegration, transience…..
The bird is “in life” and flies upward. Its perch, the abandoned building, in death throes. The great circle. All here.
Thanks for such a perceptive comment uneasy. I feel flattered. I’m going to have to look up wabi – sabi. I was going to sub title this ‘…if I could fly I wouldn’t be here’.
What an evocative image…love it, moves me! Thanks.
Thank you so much.
Thank you Laurie.
keep on doing what you’re doing!
Thank you for the comment Naia. Sorry for such an alarmingly late reply. I’m doing a bit of re arranging at the moment and I’m picking up lots of ‘missed’ comments.
a picture with strong iconic qualities, Mark … you say you spent a long time on this one – that’s on post-work, i assume? What exactly demanded the time?
I think it’s probably a relative term Paul. I rarely spend more than five minutes on a file from RAW to TIFF to JPEG so twenty minutes or so would have seemed an age …. I took this one about a year ago. I’m afraid patience is not an attribute of mine.
