This reminded me that I once bought a langur.

Not a lot of people has done that; not a lot of people has been that dumb.

I know this is slowly turning into a comment on your own mortality, but you're now capturing a silhouetted shadow of yourself with a cross...

That's looking.

Also, that's the pleasure of the gifts that exist out there for us to enjoy; were they not there, it would require a studio and more visual imagination and patience than I think myself to possess.

I think it is Friedlander said pretty much just that, but better.

But save the daylight 'cuz Spring is Coming.

Edit: replaced both pics with re-cropped versions. So it goes when you initially process & post photos immediately after taking 'em.  :)

In recent years some of the sandhill cranes in my locale have stopped migrating. Last time I was at my fav trail-walking park, in late January, I saw a pair hanging out near the park's nature center. Lotsa people give 'em food despite all the Please Don't Feed The Cranes signs. They've become very tolerant of human presence…except during spring when they've got vulnerable young. A few years ago I got chased away by a honking parent when one of her/his "colts" (that's what they're called, in English anyway) strayed too close to where I was standing & watching.  :)

I like the atmosphere a lot.

You display (in both pix) a positive attitude that I would immediately have felt compelled to crush by converting into black/white and then taking into the realms of threat and foreboding.

This seems, to me anyway, to illustrate that the subject, per se, can be the least important aspect of an image; that it often serves just as springboard to whatever else if cooking deep inside the mind.

Perhaps that's why I believe that hand-of-man subjects are more relevant to personal photography than nature's freebies. Man-made enables the base usurping of the object by the photographer as a second step along the path of connections between people. I feel no connection whatsoever with a redwood nor even an oak. I find a powerful connection, however, with a '59 Coupe de Ville, despěte never owning not having the most remote chance of owning one, but none at all with an equally distant Ferrari, yet I find both beautiful.

In other words, perhaps hand-of-man ultimately encourages searches of the soul. For those who suspect we have no such thing as a soul, what in the name of all that's good do you search in your private moments?

Perfect? A disgrace!

Why was the gig given to a woman when there are dozens of male models perfectly willing to model absolutely anything at all?

A blatant case of sexual discrimination and, worse, an insult to the innocent passer-by (now forced forever to feel threatened, possibly embarrassed and mocked for her natural, highly unretouched avoirdupois), through the brash, insensitive visual comparison that only a chauvinist pig could have made! Where the Me2 and Porc-eaters when you need one?

But a damned nice picture nonetheless.
