  1. He (she?) looks a bit perplexed, perhaps he's (she's?) trying to figure out how to break out of that stone lattice.

    Fun capture Daryl.

  2. I wonder what he's saying. I know what I'm saying: I hate Mondays especially on the heels of a great weekend.

  3. I love the expression, and I love the detail and texture of the stonework - concrete just isn't the same!

  5. I think this reveler is still feeling the effects of the weekend, and wondering how he ended up there, like that!

  8. These old carvings make great b&w subjects, I don't think they work in colour.

  10. This almost looks like it could have been in one of Magiceye's shots form the Kanheri caves. Very mysterious and cool!

  16. I think it looks like he's singing. He's singing a happy song.
    And I'm living in Disney World.

  18. How unusual! New York has so many wonderful things to see. Where is this fabulous decoration? It does have a theatrical feel. Neat capture.

  19. Perplexed and innocent and somehow happy--from another world looking into ours. I love it.

  20. For whatever reason, that freaks me the eff out!

  21. Is it me or is that one cross-eyed? ummm, probably me, right?

  22. Stone can be expressive
    faces can be flinty...


    Life!

  23. What a face! "Cement Man" (as opposed to the Green Man). Where did you find this one?

  24. What a strange face. It's not pretty, but it's far from a gargoyle. I wonder what the artist was thinking when her caged her there in stone.

  25. Very interesting! The expression creates curiosity...very nice black and white.
