Est ce l'aburde qui l'embrasse ainsi sur la bouche? Très belle image.

Lovely title. What a nice duo. This is a gorgeous misty black and white.
Beautiful light and shadows, especially that tiny pigeon shadow !!

Was this shot in early morning ? Lighting is excellent. You composed those two nicely.
21 Nov 2010 9:19am
I love the misty and solitary mood ! superb silhouette and long shadows, love the presence of the pigeon in your compo !
21 Nov 2010 9:33am
Beautiful feel.. Nice
21 Nov 2010 9:36am
C'est étonnant comme le N/B accentue certains détails. Mon oeil a été attiré immédiatement par le pigeon, qui serait presque le sujet principal de la composition, ou en tout cas qui renforce la silhouette et la démarche de l'homme dans la rue.
21 Nov 2010 9:41am
An fine urban atmosphere.
21 Nov 2010 9:59am
An image that fits perfectly into so many elegant categories . . and those words of dear Albert are going to be with me on every corner today !
21 Nov 2010 10:21am
Excellent composition! I love the misty atmosphere, the shadows of the man and the pigeon, each in their solitude!
21 Nov 2010 10:49am
the pidgeon and the man, excellent capture
21 Nov 2010 11:47am
Different directions to take though, love that misty feeling
21 Nov 2010 12:37pm
Très belle atmosphère
21 Nov 2010 1:06pm
Man and bird walking together (not for the same reason I guess) along the street. Nice halo, light, mist.
21 Nov 2010 1:17pm
Great timing! I like the strong light angle and the shadows. Good control of your contrast.
21 Nov 2010 2:47pm
Excellent contrasts in the shot, both in the tones and the contrasting directions!

A wonderful capture Sharon! Although they are side by side they are alone in their own worlds! Well seen and captured! ;-
21 Nov 2010 3:51pm
Fabulous. superbly composed and superbly processed. one of my favorites. bravo
21 Nov 2010 4:18pm
Right place, right time. And I like that haze or mist illuminated by the unseen light source.
21 Nov 2010 4:26pm
Never alone with my Shadow.............Superb B/W....
21 Nov 2010 4:30pm

21 Nov 2010 6:53pm
Positively magical, Sharon! A master lesson in the use of light.
21 Nov 2010 7:04pm
The illumination is celestial, the unique moment.
21 Nov 2010 8:53pm
Walking into the light, birds of a feather flock together.
21 Nov 2010 11:49pm
Covered with light! Beautiful.
22 Nov 2010 1:13am
another great image ... love it ... especially the pigeon
22 Nov 2010 1:24am
Very James Dean-ish. Nice.
22 Nov 2010 2:07am
i like the dramatic composition here sharon! looks like this guy is on a mission.
22 Nov 2010 6:53am
I like a lot the powdered light here and the diagonal, car+man+bird with the great presence of the shadow. And i do agree with Camus vision. Once you have accepted the absurd, beauty can rise freely. As we can see here... Have a nice week*
22 Nov 2010 8:53am
Where do you always find such phantastic light situations?!
I like this a lot: sun and mist together.
22 Nov 2010 10:35am
An excellent atmospheric street shot that is very effective. Lucky break to have the bird walking through the shot. Well done.
22 Nov 2010 3:23pm
Great wor. Love this kind of pictures.Exellent and wish all the best.
22 Nov 2010 3:42pm
A man out of the glaring light. Nobody else. Just a pigeon. So many questions.
22 Nov 2010 6:15pm
awesome light and feel here!
22 Nov 2010 6:25pm
I had to look closely to see the bird but now know the title is perfect.
22 Nov 2010 7:47pm
A very impressive story in this post. The title and the words of Camus makes in a way different stories, but in another way they work together too. Wonderful mood and feeling in this capture!
23 Nov 2010 2:19pm
Nice backlit shot. I like the shine of the pavement.
23 Nov 2010 2:47pm
excellent lighting and theme - like movie image
23 Nov 2010 6:17pm
Beautiful light and pairing in your capture. Their shadows makes this so very special.
23 Nov 2010 9:50pm
OH! That person is divinely lit
23 Nov 2010 11:10pm
It took me a minute to see the bird. Amazing as always. I am glad I am back in the groove and stopped in tonight.
24 Nov 2010 1:55am
Perfect ! Beautiful atmosphere !
24 Nov 2010 8:29pm

An exceptional piece of street photography. The shadows are really a wonderful element in this one.
2 Dec 2010 4:18am
Magical lights and shadows!
6 Jan 2011 12:28pm
Wow.. beautiful work.. i like the light and the film atmosphere!
8 Jan 2011 5:23pm
Creative way to use the shadows here. You don't often see it done like this. It works.
9 Jan 2011 7:19pm
This one's a killer...the strong backlight...the shadow racing ahead...and the bird..oh, the bird...
