TSC: Scenes that evoke a mood.

This guy looks kind of moody...

A more cheerful option is in the notes. :)

Oh what a difference in the moods you have presented! Moody, lost in thought with one and burst out laughing with the other. :) Bravo

Thanks! I was having a lot of trouble trying to come up with something for this one; at the last minute, I decided to go out and borrow a mood or three from some of the public art in my neighborhood. :)

Very contrasting images and moods, but both worthy of the challenge! :)

So, I'm going to have to go back for a closer look tomorrow, but when I was googling around for information on these guys (there are ten of them scattered around the square) I came across a close up of his face over at the Other place; apparently, he *is* smiling. (But then, they are all wearing masks, so who knows what he's really feeling?)

He and another figure are actually looking down at third, a street performer (a mime, maybe?) on his knees clutching at an imaginary chest wound, but I was trying for something broodier. :D

I like the use of mono with this picture; mono really adds mood to just about any photo. Well done! :)

Heh, thanks! I started with the robots (which I'd never noticed before - no idea how long they've been there, but I pass right by (either on foot or in my car) at least a couple of times a day), but I wasn't sure "WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!! :D" counted as a mood... :)

He's thinking: "I wish I could remember where I put my car keys." ; ) Very effective in b & w.

Very pensive expression Dvora! Maybe reflecting on 'what could have been'!?
Great as a mono conversion!

Thanks! :) I keep poking at the note to make them jump out and surprise moody-broody guy; I think he's starting to crack a smile...

Thanks! :)

He's apparently some random local guy (or at least was, back in the 70s - the figures were done in 1980).

It evokes my curiosity - why is he looking so pensive?
I love the inset one - instant joy!
