Brilliant. Especially picture #1.
Thanks very much, Rabirius!
i like the both a lot!
Great – really glad you like them – thanks very much, Peter!
you’re welcome! and here is the missing m from my previous comment… m! 🙂
Great pictures! In the first one, maybe he is following his own ghost…
Thanks very much, Laura! Yes, he does look somewhat haunted…
Very nice. At first I really liked the first photo, but after the second look I like them both. The second one has a different story than the first.
Thanks very much, Cardinal. Yes, they’re a bit of a mismatch this time.
These are so strong and completely understated, to me. I am sure you were in Moscow … although you probably weren’t. But the feeling is like that. Wonderful, Ricky 😊
🙂 Thanks so much, Gigi! No, I was in Beckenham (small town on the edge of London) for the first and just off Picadilly for the second (about to meet a friend and go to an exhibition).
Pic 1 has a high degree of uniqueness.
Thanks very much – much appreciated.
Very effective in how both images incorporate bigger and smaller elements from each, or slight variations; the buildings, incline of the head and shoulders… like they are separate pieces of the same but they are not.
Thanks very much, EllaDee – I’m glad there are some parallels – I often don’t know why I’ve put two images together, except some vague feeling that they belong.
cos that is what artists do – they pair things from their gut and RG – you really let this stuff come from your soul!
A lovely pair of images, Richard. DMB has a very 50s feel to it! 😀
Thanks very much, Richard! Yes, I can definitely see that.
First image is highly imaginative– superb!
Thanks so much, John!
Fantastic, Richard-both images!
Thanks very much, Elena!
The first one looks so desolate and I like it.
And I like this pairing with the repeat of the bowed head but with completely different atmospheres.
Thanks very much, Ashley. The first one was shot on the platform of our local train station and the second round the corner from the Royal Academy of Arts in town.
That second one sings Richard, I’m trying describe why but I can’t quite..there’s just so many elements to it, it sparkles with something..
That’s such a nice description – thanks, Cath. There was a slight fog and again quite grey light.
Love both. The second one is a grand pose– did you capture it by chance or pose the woman?
Hi Ellen, really glad you like them – the second one was happened upon by chance – she changed pose quite a lot, but i liked this particular lean.
More than a touch of Beckett in the first shot Richard, both shots full of style!
That’s so odd – I knew there was something familiar about that shot – it is very reminiscent of those photographs of him. Ha, ha, thanks very much, Patti! Have you read the trilogy?
There is nothing more difficult than rebuilding our shattered soul.
smoking hot art…
thanks so much, Karen!
Well I had time to read the comments and I am so glad that i did – but foursome reason. when i first looked at these two images, after viewing the first the second one (at first) felt like there were bullet holes in a pane of glass and that we were looking at the lady thru that.
however, when I opened the page and saw the clearer versions – it was cool to see the street she was on. and I love the posture stance you caught – the two cars with headlights on at the right – with a lit street lamp and the 2 1/2 flags to the left (informal balance) and then nicest of all – we get the title of the post and the two titles of the images to soak up and ponder. very cool post RG!
Thanks so much, Yvette! Really glad you liked this. The second shot was taken round the corner from the Royal Academy of Arts, where myself and a friend went to see the Anselm Kiefer retrospective (more of which later…)
ooo – sounds cool – and something to look forward to in the coming years – have a good one!
La photo du haut en noir et blanc me rappelle une photo de JAMES DEAN en noir et blanc aussi …
Ah , oui, ce est probablement ce que je ai “vu ” quand je ai pris le coup !
Gorgeous work, Richard! Really love the direction you are going in!
Thanks so much, Jennifer! Really glad to hear that! Much appreciated.
