This is quite wonderful, Julie. A pensive moment captured.

Such a great title for this shot Julie, of course I'm wondering where these steps are leading, there's a lot of them and very steep too!
I had a feeling that you would pick me up on the use of 'fall'. Autumn didn't fit in with my song reference haha! pffft, who says 'fall' in Oz yeh!!

Julie said...

I put labels on all my posts, but cannot work out how to get them to show!

These are the Opera House steps.

Nellies said...

Love the composition Julie, this works so well in black and white!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Birgitta said...

I like this! Great b&w shot!

Dragonstar said...

All those steps! He looks so alone. Fine photo.

HansHB said...

I love the repeating lines, disrupted by the gazing man. Nice!

A great photo, I love the composition!

Rune said...

An excellent picture, the light diagonals are superb! Good job!

Lachezar said...

Fantastic Julie, the lines, the look on his face. Great!

Harry Snowden said...

Great on so many levels. It has that moment of spontaneity that I love.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Wonderful sense of being lost in your own world! And those steps seem so narrow and steep - beautifully highlighted in monochrome!

Julie! Re labels - You need to click DONE (button just below the list) once you have selected your labels, otherwise they disappear!

Julie said...

Gemma, taa, but I think I do that, press DONE. The labels show on my list of posts within DESIGN. I think it is something to do with the layout. I will go through it all again ...

Carole M. said...

excellent, yes ..kind of geometric?

Carver said...

Great portrait and I love the composition which makes it so interesting with the strong lines.

TheChieftess said...

I really like the composition on this one...

Ann said...

I find your shots don't show as thumbnails in my reading list as well.

Lovely shot particularly in mono.

Robert Nicolaescu said...

Great shot! Have a great weekend!

Jim said...

Marvellous.

Laura said...

love this!

Ali Crehan said...

Lovely composition!

Joan Elizabeth said...

What is interesting about this shot to me is the diagonals. Is that how the steps have weathered or is it shadows making them?

Julie said...

It was late in the afternoon (5pm) so the light was wierd.

Alan said...

Great shot, beautifully composed, Julie.

Julie said...

Thank you - he looks stranded doesn't he ... the look is because he handed his camera to his female companion ... and she was obviously struggling ...

Gunn said...

Location-location!
What a nice image!

Carole said...

A very cool shot. Nice composition. Thanks for sharing it. :-)

Noteworthy Musings - Weekend/Bl/Wh

Julie said...

Thanks, folks. This slot on the weekend is the challenge of my photographic week. Don't have anything in the can for tomorrow yet, but am out and about this wet and windy Friday in Sydney. First to a neurologist over at RPA then to Camperdown Cemetery to find Ann Maund and Robert Taylor ...
