Hehe film noir today - great shot. Love the fedora :-)
26 May 2009 7:22am
YES ! Love that, makes me jump over my chair in my wireless cosy coffee place in Istanbul ;/ Not only the stupendous shadow we all can relate to, but the lines on the right part, graphism of light & shadow crossing* Have a nice day, you Shar'on-the-outlook !

excellent silhouette and graphism ! a new James Bond with a camera in his hands instead of a gun ;-))
26 May 2009 8:16am
What a great shadowy silhouette ! In the thumbnail I first thought it was David Bowie's silhouette with a micro (yeah, I know, I'm a bit obsessed by David !) ;-)
Makes a great photography anyway Sharon and no, I'm not disappointed !
26 May 2009 8:24am
@zOOm: It's okay Florence, I completely understand and share in your David Bowie obsession. It's been going on for years, apparently no cure (thank goodness!).
Thank you...I'm pleased you like it all the same :)
What a silhouette! Suoperb capture.
26 May 2009 8:53am
beautiful composition and contrast...love the hat :D
26 May 2009 8:54am
Nice shot. A strong and clear silhouette. I also like the combination of that with the horizontal stripes.
26 May 2009 9:12am
A superb shot!! The shadow has a haunted feel!! :)
26 May 2009 9:31am
David Bowie with a mic?? I thought it was Freddy Krueger with a camera, but I can's see his nails!
David or Freddie, Humphrey or James, it's a fantastic picture anyway!
26 May 2009 10:10am

26 May 2009 3:25pm
Good and intriguing composition: "the shadow of the photographer", wow.
26 May 2009 3:32pm

26 May 2009 5:33pm
charismatique à souhait ^^
26 May 2009 5:34pm
You certainly have a cool hat and cam :-) I like the little VISA sign... Cool shot.
26 May 2009 5:56pm
Really, really nice. Your B&W's are an inspiration.
I first found your site through Elaine's "Totally like me" photoblog, where she has a link to "I wannabe - bluechameleon"... and now I see why.
Your photos are obviously great, but I think what makes me love your site is the way you merge images with words... that's art for me. And I personally always have a soundtrack for every moment in my life or daily mood... so I immediately related to your work and the way you express yourself.
Top fave photographer and site so far.
26 May 2009 6:46pm
Moody. Melodramatic. Marvelous!
26 May 2009 7:32pm
very nice b&w work. Its kind of confusing as you expect the shadow to have the camera in hand as taking a picture. Greets, SePp
26 May 2009 7:41pm
The shadow of the photographer or the photographer inside the camera.
26 May 2009 8:46pm

26 May 2009 9:47pm
26 May 2009 10:49pm

26 May 2009 11:43pm
At first I thought he was playing a guitar, BC...and then I saw the camera! :) Gotta love it!
27 May 2009 12:09am
Nice silhouette. He might have taken a picture of you too :)
27 May 2009 1:57am

27 May 2009 2:00am
Très symbolique. Un NB particulièrement "parlant".
27 May 2009 2:18am
Awesome! Love it! I take it as a response to my last post. Confusing and intriguing!
27 May 2009 4:05am

30 May 2009 4:17pm
Beautiful shadow box here...I just love that you always have smart titles and inspiring quotes for your great photographs...Its like you are already preparing them for a print photo book...
30 May 2009 10:21pm
Wonderful image! What a capture. This is one for the photography annals.
3 Jun 2009 4:21am
Is it you ? ;) Again, only black and over-exposure to remove all details and concentrate on this magnifcient silhouette (and idea ;)
Strange impression after a while: the hat and the camera are male "symbol", but the the silhouette is female
