La lumière est bien maitrisée. Bonne journée.
3 Nov 2009 5:37am
Quelle lumière et quelle atmosphère. Des noirs profonds des blancs pas cramés c'est assez virtuose au service d'une belle idée. La lumière ou le banc nous avons tous le choix.

Oh ! I was talking with Aurore about flares, telling her I don't really like them except when they "mean" something, and, geez, here it's the perfect illustration for me of gorgeous it can be ! Like a whole new planet emerging at his side, love the "powder" of this light and how it bumps into the bench to illuminate it. Totally dreamy photo, love your tale (again), Sharon - and thanks for sharing such clever quotes too*

3 Nov 2009 12:53pm
no! don't go into the dark! :) i like the the gradation from light to dark in this scene you captured.. excellent shot! :)
3 Nov 2009 12:54pm
Love it love it love it !! Three times and it's not enough believe me, i love this dreamy atmosphere and that strong light on the left like a new horizon, but only if the guy is ready to look at it and... let love rule (hey Lenny, kiss to you !) For the moment, he's just facing the forest of his inner questions. Love your title too, and your quote of course, this shot makes my rainy day suddenly sunny and light because it is so luminous in all the senses that exists. Thanks a lot Sharon.
3 Nov 2009 12:59pm
Super mood captured here Sharon! Almost dreamlike....and hence the perfect title... Well done! ;-)

"He hears the ticking of the clocks / And walks along with a parrot that talks / Hunts her down by the waterfront docks where the sailers all come in / Maybe she'll pick him out again, how long must he wait / Once more for a simple twist of fate" (Bob Dylan)
Sharon, what a great composition. If you could only see my tears of joy looking at such a beauty. Brilliant storytelling, masterly framed & I'm running out of words. You made my day. Thanks for that! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
I LOOOOOVE this one. I'm sure he is really looking for me in those woods! Rumi is a favorite of mine.
I hope life is treating you great. I know we've both been on the run with very little time to cross paths. I hope you are feeling much better now. I know when I get sick, it sets me back for weeks. :)
Perfect, moodly and mystic at the same time.
3 Nov 2009 3:53pm
spooky... the first time i ever really wondered about chimeras was upon hearing a Happy Potter novel read aloud. i could tell it was something scary :) i went to the dictionary upon seeing this post and now i am better educated :) i love, love the photograph! what perfect flare! the quote...ahhh another for my files. you have so many that speak to me.
Wow great light and mood
3 Nov 2009 4:15pm
Beautiful play with light... a strange atmosphere here...
3 Nov 2009 4:43pm
ah, i missed these kinda photos of yours :) gloomy emo people/murderer in the park.
your usual boy in a hoodie (well, from my impression there were many boys in hoodies in your photos, or that one photo stuck) has grown up and progessed to suits it seems
3 Nov 2009 5:02pm
This must be from another world. A fantastic vision so beautifully envisioned and captured.
3 Nov 2009 5:22pm
A stunning image-quotation combination where each aspect feeds off the other.

3 Nov 2009 6:58pm
Love the circling rays of light and how they fall upon the sofa! Excellent.
3 Nov 2009 9:17pm
A great "polar" (detective novel) atmosphere. Perfect for a book cover.... :-)
3 Nov 2009 10:05pm

4 Nov 2009 4:18pm
wow -- a cinematic, UNFORGETTABLE moment that could have come from such legendary movies as: 'close encounters of the third kind'...!!! (or anything from david lynch for that matter!) FAAABULOUS -- 5 stars!!! bravo BC!
4 Nov 2009 4:29pm
Une superbe ambiance nocturne d'automne!!
On entend crisser les feuilles...Suspense!
4 Nov 2009 6:48pm
Superb! The dreamlike and dream sensations have been felt and recorded. The quote fits your vision really well. i don't see a path beyond wherehe's heading but the best is that i don't see him stop either for that matter. That's the feel I like about that wonderful vision. The flares are bliss.
Good Day to You Sharon.
4 Nov 2009 6:55pm
Mystic scenery. Nice play with the light
4 Nov 2009 7:17pm
Absolutely fantastic image! Very mystery...
4 Nov 2009 8:40pm
. .perfect titling .. chimera, indeed.. this image has a cinematic effect that is very appealing.
4 Nov 2009 8:41pm
feeling alone and fear.......
4 Nov 2009 8:51pm
Great B&W, the light is good and the highlight on the bench is superb.
4 Nov 2009 11:39pm
Ahhh, the quote is beautiful, so powerful.
The light coming from the left, the human figure near the center convey to me a sense of mystery and suspense. Almost like some alien encounter...I guess I've watched to many SciFi flicks.
I hope you are feeling better, Sharon.
5 Nov 2009 2:01am
you really did a miracle with this common thing! very great, blue...!
5 Nov 2009 3:29am
What a brilliant mood this superb composition holds....I love the flare and the rim-light on the figure...mysterious, romantic, loaded with intrigue...that empty bench waits for someone....awesome!!
5 Nov 2009 3:33am
what a great bw and spooky shot,what a lighting and what a story
i really love this shot,its amazing and mystic
bravo dear Sharon
5 Nov 2009 6:07am
Sharon, where on earth do you get these lonely figures in lonely places, and why are they always dressed in black? lolol i'm beginning to wonder about you, how you take soooooooo many GORGEOUS shots
5 Nov 2009 11:08am
Une belle atmosphère, une composition superbe en noir et blanc
5 Nov 2009 1:37pm
Une fantastique mise en scène qui renvoit une image de solitude intense ! J'aime cette lumière qui surgit comme pour montrer un chemin ! Fantastique !
5 Nov 2009 1:59pm
Do you use the expression "between dog and wolf"? great shot.
5 Nov 2009 3:38pm
Just one word comes to me - lovely! :)
5 Nov 2009 4:49pm
very good work and quite unexpected comment
5 Nov 2009 5:55pm
I really like the atmosphere and the particles in the atmosphere. I like that big halo above the person's head, as if the person is saying something but no word comes out. The shadowy figure is both eerie and mysterious- friend or foe... Nice shot.
5 Nov 2009 6:42pm
David Vincent, superbe, j adore l ambiance de celle si ^^
5 Nov 2009 8:16pm
Un traitement réussi qui renforce l'énigme..Bravo!

Great shot perfect for the Halloween season

you make magic photos like nobody else - no feeling of trickery, real magic.
6 Nov 2009 3:42pm
Very strong expressive image.
6 Nov 2009 7:37pm
Great moody one. Nice balance of highlights with the lens flare and bench.
6 Nov 2009 10:40pm
An x-files mood in this one.
7 Nov 2009 10:22pm
Your pics amaze me day after day. Five stars ;o)
Love the diagonal compo, from up left corner (light) to down right corner (bench).
The partial illumination of the leaves creates a scene full of mystery and tension. Excellent sensitivity to compose the atmosphere.
13 Nov 2009 11:31am
This...is amazing. Just amazing. Great composition, great light, great subject. Fantastic!
14 Nov 2009 8:56pm
I love the mood here.
16 Nov 2009 12:23am
wow! not gonna catch me walking around there!
17 Nov 2009 3:58am
Excellent serie, Sharon, I like the human presence here, with a night effect.
