Much to reflect on
Ne'er too young to contemplate
The ways of the world

What a fine image for B&W - it probably wouldn't be nearly so effective in color.

«Louis» thanks you for visiting San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

Merike said...

So lovely shot and feelings :)

Regards!

Hey Mickie, a wonderful shot. It encourages me to explore the fantastic photographic opportunities that children provide (I tend to get a bit carried away with nature shots!). Wishing you a blessed weekend.

Leovi said...

A nice, sharp shots. Excellent B / W. I like that beautiful play of light and shadows.

Black and white is an excellent medium. It is what we had to use when I was in Japan during the Occupation as color slide film and color print film was just beginning to show up. The problem was it had to be shipped by military airplanes to Honolulu, Hawaii to be processed and that took two weeks to make the round trip. You may end up with a bunch of blurry pictures. So most of us stuck with Tri-X black and white film.

When I first saw this picture I thought the little boy might be peeing through the rails.

so true Mickie...you have really captured a beautiful moment.

Jill said...

Offering a penny for his thoughts. Mickie, this is just wonderful!

Dimple said...

This is an excellent shot, Mickie. The regular, repeated lines of the railings and boards emphasize the little boy and his shadow. Bravo!

Paula Scott said...

Stunning shot with a beautiful haiku to go with it. Some friends of mine do a haiku meme once a week if you are interested:

Ralph said...

There os so much to see below as the tyke studies what lies below. From his frame of reference, everything he surveys is new to his eyes. He is learning by wondering, trying to make sense of it all. It is a new perspective...a nice view!

A most beautiful image! I think having it in black and white really enhances the photo. Great composition and detail. More importantly, this photograph evokes feelings. You are truly gifted. Precious capture, Mickie!

Too much contemplation rattles the brain and disturbs the soul! :-)

SHADOW BOLD

Shadow bold and shadow bright,
Shadow with me day and night,
Shadow taller than a tree,
Tell me what you think of me!

Desert shadows here and here

Patti said...

Love the crisp lines of the shadows here. And the perspective is wonderful too.

So deep in thought for one so young!

Perfect photo for B&W.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

Great capture. I would love to know what is going on in that little mind.

Carver said...

That's a wonderful shot. I love the child in contemplation and the great shadows of the bridge railing.

Tatjana Parkacheva said...

Beautiful black and white photo.

Regards and best wishes

John said...

Nice shot with shapes and shadows. If I can stick my oar in; I would do a vertical crop to cut out the dark railings in the top left of the shot, as they distract the eye a little. Hope comments are allowed!

BearBoy said...

Love the lines of the wharf and the shadows in the photo. Awesome photo.

J_on_tour@jayzspaze said...

The composition and colouring on the shot are sheer perfection. I love the repetition style of the fence (one of my things) and this works really well particularly as the boys shadow is smaller than the shadow of the fence.

Catherine said...

great shot - looks great in black and white...

Phyllis said...

Adorable - is this your grandson? Love the shadows..little boys don't stand still for very long!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

That is pretty spectacular, perfect title. I like the intersecting lines, too.

Joan said...

Beautiful shot.
I'd love to know what he is thinking. :)

Kelly said...

You can tell he's thinking long and hard about something while standing in the shadows.

Spiderdama said...
