    Very well captured

  • Another lucky one Liza; and that Pentax 50-135mm lens captures everything well :-) Thank you

    Love the way the camera picked up the texture of the surface of the metal and the bonus bird, well shot R!

  • Thanks Georgie; I was amazed at the detail too considering how far away I was. But waht luck to have the bird perfectly placed with a pure black background :-)

    What great timing

  • Well Alan, I can’t say I designed it that way – I spent a fair bit of time that day trying to captures passing birds, but they’re too fast to be sure you get them where you want them. Thanks

    the perfect bw photo to me……
    such a beautiful symbol

  • Merci Madame, oh yes the symbol ;-( But this symbol is opening outwards and that makes all the difference :-)

    i saw a labyrinth there, and in a way how long is the road to reach the inner meaning of things/feelings/life ……
    in the same time, I imagine it could just open itself to build a road…..
    many symbols

  • That’s the intriguing thing about image art and photography in particular, different people interpret an image in a different way – I would have liked the bird facing the other way; anti-clockwise to the road to freedom. Merci Magali, for your considered thoughts.
