Encore une compo aux peits oignons. J'adore particulièrement la poutre qui pose une superbe horizontale.

Looks like a hard situation in the lost.
I like this cold mood.

I love and envy your ability to take great pictures and then match them with perfect quotes!

There's always a path to walk on....
4 Feb 2010 6:59am
looks so trap-like! reflection from the water, looking on, but not a single way out, nice way articulated.

H°w °riginal ! Th°se r°und shapes in dynamic repetiti°ns, reflecti°ns included, create, with the man standing still, a Kafkaesque m°°d the title and reference t° the auth°r °f the Bell Jar enhance. °f c°urse I l°ve this image a l°t, but if y°u w°n't be able to pass thr°ugh all the little "O" in this c°mment (damn t°° little), the character °f y°ur str°ng image sh°uldn't be that scared : Illusi°n °nly seems to keep him pris°ner. There's always a way °ut... At least a way IN ? (l°ve th°se giant curler hair-like shapes a l°t !)

mystical and exciting and creative, perfect, love it
4 Feb 2010 7:40am
So beautiful...I love this composition
A fantastic shot
4 Feb 2010 7:42am
Deep and murky...lovely reflection gives a hint that there may be some clarity in this "mind.'
(Unfortunately, Plath found a way out of the mind!)
4 Feb 2010 7:48am
@Dulcie: ...yes, it's unfortunate she did.
title and picture are excellent!
4 Feb 2010 8:15am
is there really no way out? i think one way could be possible. but this one is a very good photo - fantastic work!
4 Feb 2010 8:22am
The man in front of the dilemma of the life!!!!. Spectacular.
4 Feb 2010 8:33am
It's a metaphysical image to my eyes, and an impressive one to me :)
4 Feb 2010 9:17am
Oh !! LOVE this one !! Perfect compostion and excellent strong B&W processing... An excellent shot, really.
4 Feb 2010 9:43am
very impressive, love it
4 Feb 2010 10:28am
this is just something special as a composition ... and yes as has been mentioned a Kafkaresque feel.
Forboding fearful frustration flooding his mind.
I can't believe that this wasn't anything but an organised shot ... brilliant.
4 Feb 2010 10:32am
(I love a big tube.) Nice shot Blue.
4 Feb 2010 10:33am

4 Feb 2010 11:09am
@Elaine-: Thanks Elaine.
This wasn't downtown, but at the end of Granville Street just before you cross the bridge over to Richmond and YVR.
Great composition! Excellent B/W! Love it!!!
4 Feb 2010 12:15pm
Haunting image. Love the reflections..the mood you've captured/created. Looking at this you'd think there really is no escape from our 'minds'!!!
4 Feb 2010 1:18pm
I can't pin it down to an individual element - I just really like this image!
4 Feb 2010 1:26pm

4 Feb 2010 5:36pm
Trapped in his own mind and nowhere to go. A horrifying thought.
4 Feb 2010 6:36pm
completely frightening . . . the mind is a scary place to venture.
4 Feb 2010 6:46pm
This photo is a psychological thriller in one frame. Very beautiful, with the reflections and gorgeous tones, and more than a little disturbing. Brilliant!
4 Feb 2010 8:39pm
Lonesome never felt better. Searching never felt better. Waiting never felt better. What an excellent composition, what a brilliant photograph, Sharon! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

5 Feb 2010 12:52am
fantastic shot. love it!
5 Feb 2010 1:06am
i love the way the water reflects
like a reluctant decision, where
there is no turning back,
but no easy steps ahead neither.
5 Feb 2010 1:25am
You know, Sharon,.... you are brilliant. Period.
5 Feb 2010 4:36am
@amy: Thanks Amy :)
You are very kind and give me way too much credit.
There are times that an image will come at me like jazz. This is such an image. Wonderfully framed and powerful in its simplicity. Well seen.
Extremely artistic eye you had with this one, Sharon.
5 Feb 2010 5:04am
I guess everything has been said..what to add so? I know...I love it!
5 Feb 2010 7:35am

I like the reflection in the water and i like also the industrial context. Great work.
5 Feb 2010 10:00am
It seems to be a hostile universe where the man has his place in this image. Beautiful effect doubled by a reflection.
5 Feb 2010 11:40am
I like the composition and the exposure. May I ask you who he is ? I mean, does he act for you ? Is he your model ? Or is he just a man you found there ?
5 Feb 2010 1:10pm
@Hiro: Thank you.
He is a friend of mine :)
magnifique reflet au bas de l'image !!!
d'une grande clarté :) !!
5 Feb 2010 1:12pm

One of the most poignant and soul stirring images I've seen for a while... What great eye, creative mind and remarkable talent to turn this into such an exceptional image!!! Brilliant work Sharon!
6 Feb 2010 2:39am
Fabulous image Sharon, reminds me of a scene from the twilight zone. Love the mysterious mood created by the dark tones, patterns and fascinating reflections.
6 Feb 2010 5:48am
Beautiful picture and reflections in the water.
6 Feb 2010 8:23am

Impressive work, one of your best.
