Love the words and am wondering if I have ever loved now :)
Excellent contrast. The path looks to be a two way here to there. Well seen....

Beautiful Sharon. The footprints are of people without love? Have you seen APL's photo today?
16 Jan 2009 5:51am
@Matt Sutton: I think it must be...thanks Matt.
Do you have a link? I've not seen the photo.
comme dans du coton ............................... c'est magique ........
Lovely commentary. I guess no chance for love here. Someone needs much more practice. I heard of the class they do somewhere where they teach to fly, or float at least. Highly recommend :-)) Somehow this photo makes me feel as if I am melting into it. LIKE it!

Belle image hivernale! J'aime bien toutes ces traces de pas!
16 Jan 2009 6:33am
Great story telling image. Well done!
16 Jan 2009 6:44am
attention, ca glisse !

I like this silhouette well enough in the shade, which follows the steps of others. A White and black very good emphasized, certainly atmosphere which of games...
16 Jan 2009 8:07am
We follow by the glance these steps lost in the snow... Unknown Destination !
16 Jan 2009 8:12am
there's something a bit amusing about this photo... i dig it, the crowd was all going to the same place? haven't seen you in a while sharon, hope all is well

The image with that diffuse character and the personage to the left, provides a sensation of huge solitude.
16 Jan 2009 8:24am
simply wonderful. Love it :)
16 Jan 2009 8:47am
The footprints end right at the steps. No one has gone further than that. Maybe only the lovers have, and probably they are sitting on the benches, looking at all the people rushing through the snow.
Brilliant capture Sharon!

Thanks for that great image full of footpints behind the guy, but none ahead, how strange and gorgeous mood ! And thanks a lot for the turkish proverb I didn't know - since my whole family came from Istanbul I enjoy it utterly !
16 Jan 2009 9:36am
Everybody turned to the left to go down stairs I think ! I love the mood !
16 Jan 2009 11:19am
Nice image. As everyone has already noted, it's particularly intriguing how all the footsteps turn and go down the stairs, leaving that space of pure white.
16 Jan 2009 11:35am
Very good composition!
16 Jan 2009 12:46pm
a well traveled path! I love the repitition of the benches
16 Jan 2009 1:24pm
amazing dark ambiance
16 Jan 2009 1:34pm
the person looks like a ghost, very suggestive
16 Jan 2009 2:09pm
The mood of a dark winter day.
16 Jan 2009 2:16pm
It looks like nobody went straight on the street but they moved down to somewhere else. In any case, you've a wonderful observation.
16 Jan 2009 2:21pm
Strange atmosphere which gives envy to follow steps haughtiness ! exellent !
16 Jan 2009 2:31pm
Wonderful mating of photograph and words, Sharon. You have captured such a beautiful ambience in this scene. Fabulous
16 Jan 2009 2:42pm
It works well in B&W !!
16 Jan 2009 3:02pm
Nice winter scene.
16 Jan 2009 3:15pm
You're a wonderful, wonderful photographer :)
16 Jan 2009 4:04pm
How atmospheric! Another magical and enchanting image that draws a viewer into it!
16 Jan 2009 4:28pm
The true lovers went straight ahead, no footprints. Everyone else went left. Gorgeous image.
16 Jan 2009 4:46pm
16 Jan 2009 4:47pm
Great shot. It's funny how no one went down the stairs from the left, or went up then and walked left.
16 Jan 2009 5:20pm
Your photographies are always so nice in their black and white, a soft blur... a dreamy vision...
16 Jan 2009 5:24pm
16 Jan 2009 6:18pm
A really fine winery study. I love that the numerous tracks all seem to disappear mid-photo. A solid B&W with perfect movement.
16 Jan 2009 7:06pm
I absolutley love the tones on this image. Seems like a long path going down... =D
16 Jan 2009 7:24pm
Curious proverb for the western mind :)
Good image of the footprints on the snow, and a very good treatment.
16 Jan 2009 8:20pm
The traces of feet - the certificate of the life... The amazing painting Bluch. Congrats!
16 Jan 2009 8:21pm
What a great quote. For me, the soft focus makes this photograph. Well done.
16 Jan 2009 8:42pm
Excellent work. It's soft, yet gritty. The feeling of solitude is profound. All those footprints, yet they are alone.
16 Jan 2009 8:50pm
A very thought provoking proverb and perfectly suited to this stunning image!!! I am amazed that the footprints just stop half way....ahhh just spotted that they go down the steps! Very clever:-)
16 Jan 2009 9:11pm

Love this technique. Reminds me of someone who I can't think of right now. Quite famous for this. It has an almost mystical, glass-like quality. Very nice!
16 Jan 2009 11:50pm
This is a terrific shot, a timeless piece on winter, and the travels of people. The deep dark tones against the well trodden snow seem to perfectly encapsulate the transience of time passing.
17 Jan 2009 12:22am
A longer exposure would have made this photo even stunnier than it already is. Congratulations.
17 Jan 2009 12:38am
pas beaucoup d'amoureux ce jour-là ! bel effet romantique
17 Jan 2009 1:11am
love the mood.
17 Jan 2009 1:23am
one of the best B&W photos I've seen. I like the intensity in this photo..
17 Jan 2009 2:32am
Cool shot, looks like they all got the same destination too :)
17 Jan 2009 2:37am
hi again Sharon. I answer to your question here is APL's photo I was talking about. http://apl.aminus3.com/image/2009-01-16.html
17 Jan 2009 3:30am
I guess nobody has loved when I see all those footprints! It's a mysterious photo with lots of emotions, I like it!
17 Jan 2009 3:42am
Lovely images and words. Beautiful capture, like the footprints and the blur effect that creates the mood here. Excellent work!
17 Jan 2009 3:49am
Quite hard to do, that is, walk on snow without foot prints, making it ever harder to even learn to love. Spectacular image.
17 Jan 2009 5:34am
The detail is superb, love the soft glow from the snow, beautiful!
17 Jan 2009 8:48am
Nice winter scene, love the processing
17 Jan 2009 11:55am
But more than that: great mood, great atmosphere in thius picture
17 Jan 2009 2:38pm
This is a beautiful, moody image. It's interesting that no one has ventured down the path past the stairs.
17 Jan 2009 2:41pm
Simply wonderful. ...
wonderful street scene..
17 Jan 2009 3:29pm
I like much the idea of this recluse traversing a world of multiple. Its hour is selected to pass unperceived, these traces are based in the other traces, only your photograph will retain it Bravo ;)
18 Jan 2009 8:02am
One word: brillant!
19 Jan 2009 4:03pm
Your photographs are very moody. I love your style.
20 Jan 2009 3:27pm
You are one great photographer! All combined with great creativity and humanity. I know I've said many times (I think) but never mind repeat ... You are a role model for me! Your pictures are all an incredible strength. So it is with your words! I ask you not leave us! It is a pleasure and a great incentive to follow the "red. " With all my love and admiration Happy New Year full of love and life! Cheers! A hug, Adela
