I like how you find something special in the (apparently) mundane.

Thanks, Paulo. But I think "mundane" is a point of view. At the moment I, along with many others, am confined to a house, a yard, and something less than a mile of small, usually quiet river, which unless it's raining I walk either in the morning or the evening. I can't do my favorite thing, which is to go to one of several nearby tourist centers and shoot street. But I always remember Cartier-Bresson's dictum: "Photographing is nothing. Looking is everything." I know you understand that because I see the looking in your own pictures.

Cut it in half, the left one, and you have a winner.

Thanks for the advice, Slobodan. Only problem is, I don't agree.

Fair enough. I've got a fine shredder.

Ouch! I would have accepted a Manhattan as a payment in kind.

You've got it any time you stop by. Only problem is, we're gonna have to wait for this fiasco with coronavirus to blow over.

Perhaps mundane was a wrong term. What I ment to express was that you made a nice photo out of something simple, subjects that we can find near us and are common to us.

Hi Paulo. I understood that you weren't criticizing and I knew what you meant. I used to do grand, sweeping landscapes in Colorado, though unfortunately I didn't have Hans's fabulous fog machine. But I'm ninety years old now, and with Coronovirus around I'm pretty much limited in my access to grand, sweeping landscapes. The alternative is HCB's dictum: "Photographing is nothing. Looking is everything." So I spend a lot of time looking.
