Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
Richmond upon Thames
super shot; great contrasts
I love it... and really love that I didn't catch the figure on the right at first!
Fantastic picture.... evokes alot of emotion and thought. I like the Private door too...
@Shaun etc.....Thanks. I was first drawn to three major elements: the way the light was flooding out of the hatch across the black menu board, and then the black slab of the "Private" door; the third element was the enclosed and rather claustrophobic compression of what I saw. It hasn't quite come out as well as I had hoped, but it's clear that I've transmitted the idea. There were 4 attempts, and finally the "dark figure" just moved into the exact spot where I was willing him to stand!!
Ben oui, c'est la silhouette d'Alfred Hitchcock him-self que tu as captée !
You are so right in what you say - I'd not thought of B and W and emotions but true - absolutely true. Really do like this. Thanks for your comment on my B and W - total luck of course! Other than to say that at least I could recognise it as being a possible, and that in no small way due to seeing your photos and Richard's in B and W.
All I can say is nuthin' special.......... but I like it
Very nice...but I too see no specials...signs of recessionary times perhaps.
