Outstanding, Sharon! I love the way you captured the person under the umbrella; the lean to the side; the position of the legs! Are we drawn to water because it is the origin of all life?

Beautiful capture. There's a nice grainy feel in this image.
5 Mar 2009 5:28am
I like the grainy feel in the image. It seems like a old photograph.
5 Mar 2009 5:40am
@Hema Iyer: Thank you! Yes, the beauty of the Holga...it gives that old photo feel :)
I lost my holga. Photos like yours makes me want to get another or perhaps a Lomo.
5 Mar 2009 5:49am
@613photo: Thanks so much! I am wanting a lomo as well. Have you seen the new 135mm Holga? It's quite cool!
Your quote hit me again, Sharon. Love the image...
5 Mar 2009 5:54am
love the mood in this, and superb lighting! i know your favorite kinds of photos consist of BW =D

My, you not only live near the famous Amy http://cutebutstupid.aminus3.com/ but you have an amazingly similar, and good, style.
I like it.
5 Mar 2009 6:29am
very nice image
5 Mar 2009 6:31am
This camera really gets very curious and interesting images, and the b/w gives a certain mysterious shade :)
@Paco Díaz: Thanks Paco! I really do enjoy my Holga, but honestly it's hit and miss at time. If I get a couple of good shots on a roll of 12, then I am happy :)
Great photo and wonderful title - I really like this composition and the man walking away is perfect with the umbrella - great shot!
5 Mar 2009 6:36am
I like this and the slight angle you took. Your quote reminds me of a line from a movie - a chick flick, which shall remain nameless, but I do love that quote. =)

Hilarious posture in the figure. best...jerry
5 Mar 2009 6:43am
Lovely processing here, great b&w photograph! Congrats!

This image resembles the old picture through the perfect use of the grain...super!
5 Mar 2009 7:22am
Stunning image .... love the angle ... well done!
5 Mar 2009 7:37am
beautifully observed and composed! wonderful image

It's a strange sort of pain: to die of yearning for something you'll never experience.
5 Mar 2009 8:16am
Another black and white gorgeous one. That cloudy sensation is the one that I like more.
5 Mar 2009 8:28am
Wonderful contrast and composition, with a really sad mood...the person walking away, bent, fragile and alone...beautifully captured.
5 Mar 2009 9:23am
I can read into your storyline, yes to me it says I have had enough I am on my way lets ee what tomorrow brings. great composition
5 Mar 2009 9:27am
A lovely grainy rendering, like the nostalgic mood.
5 Mar 2009 9:47am
my fave thing is the umbrella, it's so cute among the ducks :) and i like the composition, the large foreground leading up to the picture, it's such a cool shot!!
5 Mar 2009 12:16pm
There is such a compelling comedy element here, Sharon. The pose of the person suggests almost a little dance or jig, matched by the feet of the bird. A wonderful composition, as always
5 Mar 2009 1:00pm
I think the umbrella is what this photo work so well. So simple. Love it.
lol..looks like they are all going to follow him home! another fine image Sharon!
5 Mar 2009 1:35pm
a friend of seagull? great shot
5 Mar 2009 1:37pm
Safer to use an umbrella with this many birds afoot :) Nice perspective, great angle.
5 Mar 2009 1:50pm
Very nice Sharon, It seems like a old photograph.
Beautiful! I love your photos ...
5 Mar 2009 2:01pm
Beautiful...very poignant :)
5 Mar 2009 2:13pm
A strong shot that gives a feeling of being alone on a dreary day. Only the ubiquitous birds fluttering about do not break the feeling of isolation. Maybe this comment is just me on a heavy, overcast morning! :-)
5 Mar 2009 2:52pm
Wonderful composition...love the slight tilt and the light. Great capture!
5 Mar 2009 3:17pm
I wonder if it found it's friends again. Dramatic shot Sharon. Nice work indeed.
5 Mar 2009 3:21pm
Great capture. The perspective makes the birds look giant. He looks like he needed the end of the day to come.

there is never a surprise when I come to see your pictures...they are alwyas great! I have never had a bad surprise...I love this one, the loneliness jumps out of the picture.
I like the photos on your blog, very different. I think this one could use a little cropping at the bottom, else it is quite beautiful.
5 Mar 2009 7:18pm
Oh, what a photograph! I love the authenticity and the non-clichedness of it! The fact that it isn't sharp really adds to it beauty, IMHO!
5 Mar 2009 7:44pm
Vey funny one. Duck like walk.
5 Mar 2009 7:45pm
Kind of sad feeling. good composition.
5 Mar 2009 7:48pm
Awesome quote. And a great photo to go with it; looks like a "shift" change is happening.
5 Mar 2009 8:17pm
Much emotion in the silhouette of this character, it's beautiful!
5 Mar 2009 8:42pm
Another excellent take.
5 Mar 2009 9:15pm
Really interesting choice of focus in this snap. Like how the person conveys movement while the birds, normally do dynamic, seem content to be static in the scene.
5 Mar 2009 10:17pm
realisation here in your image Sharon
5 Mar 2009 11:15pm
I really like the two gestures in this photo: duck marching, and a person under umbrella trying to move away from the duck. Nice shot.
6 Mar 2009 12:11am
And it looks like thank goodness its over! Moving shot!
6 Mar 2009 1:00am
This got a nice grainy old time film feel to it... Great work
6 Mar 2009 2:50am
Wonderful title and a heartfelt image.
6 Mar 2009 4:03am
6 Mar 2009 6:29am
With that crouching as he is , he does look like a bird/duck himself :D
Great capture, love it!
6 Mar 2009 5:20pm
Une photo à l'ancienne, superbe.
6 Mar 2009 7:56pm
Old man's way, seaguls ways... Love this soften grains. Beautiful.
7 Mar 2009 6:48am
Looks like the Holga was just the right tool for this shot. I like the focus on the foreground grass and the birds leaving the rest of the image with that charming softness that you get with a Lomo camera.
7 Mar 2009 7:15am
lovely shot - a timeless feel to it
7 Mar 2009 9:38pm
Synchronicity in gesture.
