        Nice pic Mike! I like how the kid is a step behind and the shadow appears to have the kid letting go. Almost as if to say, “I got this, dad.” Emotional.

    The paint job is what caught my eye initially. Then when reviewing the shots of the day I noticed how the door, window and light fixture shadows added just enough depth to keep the image from looking flat.

      Nice Rob. It makes me feel as if the small shutters can be closed voluntarily from the inside but the bug one (the shadow) is something that will be closed by a force on the outside. A little scary.

    So many fantastic images in this thread.ย  Wish I could comment on all. This is another building near the World Trade Center in NYC. Took a chance shooting into the light – what appears to be a human form is a reflection. But a human form looking down on the place of destruction, could be an appropriate vision. Color and one in B/W

    I tried to title the photo but it seems it didn’t work. It’s called “from my window”

    Hi Deborah,

    There was small bug in to the forum software and instead of your image I saw mine. Now thanks to Dahlia Ambrose all is in place.
