    Wow BB! Would have been a good one for SiJ....or is this your spare from yesterday? :wink:

    Nice, albeit fleeting, moment and yet you had time to compose it so well. Great work!!!

    Thanks, Mark. Yes, it was from yesterday...no composing, I'm afraid. Just clicked the shutter.

    By the way, this is an open thread for anyone who'd like to add their own photographs.

    Really love this photo, the contrast between the stillness and the fast movement as well as the texture and the colour rendition (specially the clouds and sky) is really nice.

    Much appreciated you all. I will say that I am very glad that Wouter was able to put into words what I think many of us have felt for, perhaps, our whole photographic lives?

    Please do add to the thread, if you'd like. Or of course, you can start your own threads, too. My stroll is open ended.

    Hey, Christian - you've been "the strolling shooter" for a longtime, haven't you?:biggrin:

    the strolling is my most comfortable way of 'collecting' photographs. Like a collector in stone age....

    Here some metal

    @Silverbullet: I like that: "collecting photographs". I certainly acknowledge that. The toning by the way suits the metal them of your photograph.

    @BB: Just what a strong photograph. In every way my eyes gets drawn to the left. The benches below, the fence, the coastal line, the clouds, and the pigeon. It all leads me to move from right to left.

    Bernd, I'm so glad you've added from your collection. Those could be from a mastodon, if you were from another time. I like the touch of iridescence or glow of the bicycle's bones very much, indeed.

    These days while photographing as an old fart, I try to remember my mood while photographing forty years ago. Looking at my pics from this time is really magic for me. But what did I do in contrary to today?
    I remember the visits of Amsterdam, sitting in small cafés with my photobuddy Michael, drinking coffee and smoking a cigarette at the end.
    One of my 'celebrations' was the dismantling of my Nikon F. Putting the Photomic aside, releasing the ground glass and blowing into the mirror box was a real ceremony plus loading the film. While putting everything into it's place, a special feeling went through my body, it was the anticipation for the unknown activities, contacts and discussions outside.
    Strolling so many miles per day and at the end of the day having nothing or just one, two frames wasn't wrong. So I'm happy that Wouter brought his ideas about this pain- and frustration-less way of taking pictures to the surface......

    Your post is a good one and shows that sometimes when you grab one on the fly without having to concentrate on comp...that it pays off and in this case catching the bird in flight is a plus!!
