    Photorx12 has set a thought-provoking topic for our next weekly challenge.

    My choice for topic is "Life un-noticed". We are surrounded by life 24 hours a day but are often too busy to notice it; what would life look like to you if you stopped and took a quick snapshot of that moment.

    Let's see your take on this one over the next 5 days (Closing Wed 8PM NYC time).

    I hope this qualifies. This fellow was completely absorbed in his phone. He wasn't watching where he was going, or what was happening around him (ie, me with a camera). I had not intended to capture him, this was just serendipity. Used that red filter in SEP

    I guess this one is more about what the guy didnt notice. I can't get a hold of the theme in my head... may replace this with something else before weeks end :(

    After walking on the pavement a bit I've noticed this small patch of grass growing from one of the cracks, I thought this would be a good metaphor for life being un-noticed.

    I was trying to find a good spot to make pictures of ice fishermen when I spotted this fellow keeping a sharp eye on me.

    Hi Bill,

    the sign on the back of the seat that fellow is sleeping on makes that a great scene!

    Cheers,
    Jerry

    We call these spiders "daddy long legs" and walk past them at our front door every day.
