~ walk a way ~

~ walk a way ~
maybe maybe I'll walk a away . . .
and perhaps to return another day . . .
who can tell what tomorrow may bring . . .
but for today no birds sing . . .

it's time to look outside of the box
not wishing each day to wear old socks ;-)
to be creative and different I'll be
there is no need to follow me . . .

and so I'll just wait and see
what tomorrow brings and maybe maybe
a change of scene and a change of heart
or else sadly we must part . . . !

Fallnetöm, .t.a.o.n., Antonio Diaz Pedraza, Krone and 14 other people have particularly liked this photo

You will talk the talk
And walk the walk.
Just keep the rocks
From those new socks!

People in motion horizontally and vertically. That makes for a great effect.
I like the cropped version best, but both have their strengths.

beverleyplaya has replied to Dave Linscheid
o0o thanks Dave and I look and re look and see something
different each time actually ... first I like one and then I like
the other one ... ;-) just like life I guess oOo

the old socks are like an old couch
comfortable but sometimes its ouch
I need a new pair or I fancy a change
just as in life we need to engage
to go for a walk and just look around
sometimes my feet don't touch the ground ;-)

Malòn- "Absent"-
Un "astratto" bellissimo. La versione originale ha più realismo, attimi intensi di vita quotidiana. Il ritaglio trasmette un senso di fugacità e distacco dal reale. Molto belle entrambe. Bel lavoro

beverleyplaya has replied to Malòn- "Absent"-
o0o Bonjour, merci beacoup. Yes I agree ;-) and yesterday I felt there were too many
distractions from the icm with regard to the lights from the shops and when I cropped
I noticed the faces were relatively distinct for icm ... its interesting to read the comments and thoughts on what is preferred and so thank you for your kind observations oOo

I like the crop version - it gives the "purer" and mor dynamic impressionism for me. the colors are on spot - beautiful !
4 years ago.
beverleyplaya has replied to Fallnetöm
o0o Thanks Tom, each time I view this ... I feel differently ... its
strange how out moods and perception can change from day to
day but its like deciding which pitcture to post ... whats a delight
to us one day ..we can look back and think OH NO !!!!!!!!!!! ;-)
this picture kind of haunts me .. I somehow wish I had not
cropped it ... perhaps without the frame it would be much better ;-) oOo
4 years ago.
Fallnetöm has replied to beverleyplaya
ok - the frame... I imagine the title centered below the image and your signature hand-scripted... personal taste, isn't it?

it's obvious that the crop will always change the story for the viewer - and the storytelling by the narrator. Mood and perception of the presenter and the viewer - without any hints - they can be completely opposite. The abstraction gives very often a more "free" viewing experience - and with that also more responsibility to dive in with your own interpretation. The comments - if any beside the "usual suspects of comments" may sometimes come with a surprise then - but isn't it beautiful to receive many diverse comments? There is more behind the obvious... but you have to take your time to look.

I have so many images in my stream where by today I would say - meh - which horse kicked me at that time? :-))) Anyway - I let them in - it's good to look back.

walk the way ...

for me the uncropped picture is completely dominated by the heads - smiling faces, curious faces, people in a rush and people strolling. headless hurry in the background, on the right side - she has her head on her hip ;-))) - walking the same way for all - but not necessarily walking together.

I am closer to the people because I divine them more - the people are not anonymous - I personally see the same situation and context in the cropped version - but for me it adds more to the namelessness of the scene.

So - what was your intention?
4 years ago.
beverleyplaya has replied to Fallnetöm
o0o light and colour always attract me, perhaps because of water colour painting,
the light is of importance to me ... ;-) when I see something ... it seems that I line it
up in my minds eye as I would if I were to possibly paint it later ...;-) good intentions
especially of the abstract pictures of Venice ... always I carry with me now ... the
ideas in my mind of how I want to paint to interpret Venice through my eyes ...
and so here in a shopping mall walkway .. .same thing ... light ... colour ...
and with icm of course ... the movement and sense of moment captured
really really as it is in life forever ... hard to explain ... sorry ;-) oOo

*

why did I crop ... why not crop showing the faces .. they were interesting
faces ... well ... colour ... I think that had to be the driving force as I think
what was putting me off the full picture was the "drag" of the lights ... I did
not like that ... looked artifical for what I really wanted to be able to show ...
I know I know I know in photoshop you could "obliterate" these parts you
do not like ... ;-))))) hehehehe ... I have photoshop ... but have not been
on a course ... and have not that much time to be honest ... I feed my
creative needs ... with photography ..and paint when I can and when
it flows ... a little like writers block ... sometimes ...;-) I know what I want
to paint ... I carry it around in my head ... it drives me crazy ... you see
I have a photogrpahic memory .. inherited from my Father ... ;-) we
rarely forget ;-) if ever ... and its the same with photogrpahy and painting
I can be travelling along a road ... I recognise the same trees ... the
and will even go to photograph the same picture again ... and have to
stop myself ... I see the same shot ... the same way .. repeated ;-)
it drives me crazy ;-) .... but I like it . I would not like to be the sort of
person that looked around and struggled for something to photograph ...
on the contrary ... I see everything around me as potential ;-)

does that answer ?

Fallnetöm has replied to beverleyplaya
yes thank you for your answer

I understand what you mean with the light strokes and what drives your thinking here.
the full, square version was not visible at the beginning.

everything IS a potential! I try to resist - I almost always loose :-)))))))

beverleyplaya has replied to Fallnetöm
yes on my return to reply I noticed the picture was missing,
how odd ... anyway I have copied and pasted the hrml and
put it in there and it seems ok now ;-) and yes ... I always loose ;-))))))
