Memories Can’t Wait, 2013
Love this Richard ! Feel the heat!
Thanks very much, Kathryn! Yes, it’s ironic now – above 30 yesterday!
I remember those cold days! I like the sunlight and the steam from the coffee, the way his hand is lit.
Me too. They weren’t that long ago! Glad you like it, Cheryl.
Thanks very much, John! 🙂
This is beautiful, Richard. I like the idea that the steam could symbolize memories – seeping into small spaces … maybe there but only just…
Thanks very much, Karen. Yes, to me he looks like he’s struggling with something ineffable.
Simple image…simply effective. Great shot.
Thank you very much!
Very well captured… 🙂
Thank you very much, Drake! 🙂
This is such an interesting portrait. Memories can have a way of making everything else wait. And that can be fun and enjoyable.
Thanks very much, Terry. Yes, to me he looks like he’s been struck by some notion…
Simple but stunningly effective 🙂
Thanks so much, EllaDee 🙂
Now I feel like drinking a hot cup of tea which is good! Excellent capture Richard.
Thanks very much, Marco! Do you know the film, Wings of Desire?
I have not, but I see it’s black and white, looks interesting, I’m adding it to my watch list.
“Why am I me?” Wings of Desire.
That’s made me want to dig the DVD out and watch it again. It’s a film full of love.
My haiku dedicated to this timeless picture: Memories can’t wait / those smoke elves emerging / sip by sip, in turns
Have a good day!
Wow! Thank you so much, MJ! I’m stunned! Your haiku is beautiful. Thanks!
Your picture was the prime mover… instantly inspirational, a collector’s item. 🙂
An exquisite shot Richard and so beautifully framed . . .
Thanks very much, Patti!
Wow! Just terrific! The almost sip, the light, composition…great.
Thanks very much, Elena!
Thanks very much, Anette!
This one is great Richard. I love the way that the man fills the space. Where did you take it?
Ahem, Clock House station platform 1.
I pass through that station. I wasn’t expecting you to say that, though
That’s interesting – did you have an idea of where it was taken?
I thought it might be an early morning market, was expecting you to say somewhere ‘trendy’ Like that it’s Clock House though, I’ve never got off the train there and looked around, I only know what the station looks like from the train.
I love this one, the crop really makes the image and then the steam coming out of the cup. Great image Richard.
Thanks very much, Leanne. Crops are interesting – sometimes you can take something quite mundane and totally transform it. I like them – it doesn’t feel like photography anymore – more like graphic design.
Great mood, love the steam
Thanks very much, Stevie.
Thanks very much! Glad you like it.
Wonderful capture–is it really that cold?
Thanks very much, Jennifer. No, this was taken a few weeks ago. It’s boiling here at the moment.
Lovely image – and definitely a lot behind it! It could be a casual passerby or a homeless person getting their one dose of warm nourishment for that day. Nicely done oh collaborator! 🙂
Thanks very much, Richard! 🙂 I love it when they tell a story.
Oh, excellent. Marvelous title and image.
Thanks very much! If all else fails, listen to Talking Heads.
