  11. Greetings Monochrome Weekly neighbor! Perhaps with this photo, you can answer the age old question, "Why did the chickens cross the road?"

    So perfect for black and white!

  12. That has come out really well, I love the 'old time' feel to the shot, maybe it's the diffused sunlight that does it, it gives it a nice softness.

  14. Did you actually visit Belgium in 1999? We were there in March of '00.
    This photo reminds me of the foggy Sunday morning we had here yesterday...san le poulet!

  17. Love the rooster and hen, perhaps having a clandestine meeting in the early morning fog?!

  18. What a cute couple they make, standing in the road, chatting. A lovely black and white.

  19. At first, I thought it was another path in The Park.

  22. I'm glad I read the caption before I commented, 'cause I was wondering where you found chickens in NYC!

    Fabulous shot! (And Aileni will no doubt be pleased to find it's a film capture.)

  23. I don't usually think of chickens in Belgium. Great shot!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love it - they look as though they just stopped for a cluck! LOL

  25. This is wonderful. Fowls greeting each other in the Fog. What a beautiful place.

  26. Who knew chickens could be so romantic?

    Great shot!

  27. Daryl, this is a beautiful shot. So full of atmosphere. The light has a dream-like quality - maybe it's an illustration from an old children's story!

  28. Oh, I love the roosters! What a great shot =)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh for crissakes...there's my hen with a wayward rooster!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Okay, this is funny. My screen did not show the caption at first, so I thought "Wow! She got a shot of a rooster and a hen in Central Park! Neat!"

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is so cool - I wonder what the two might be talking about ... .
    I like this photo very much, it's great!

    ReplyDelete
  32. fantastic. I am just going to start sending people here on Mondays, because your pictures are so good.

  33. Why does a chicken cross the road? He heard it was not snowing on the other side?

    I love this. Did you have to spend a lot of time digging through archives? Please feel free to post any of these magnificent shots.

    So what we're you doing in Belgium? Or why does a "fashionista" cross the Atlantic?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Okay - THIS - I need a copy of! I will buy it! It's going to be a gift fo sho. Is your signature in there? I don't see it. Thanks for making my Christmas list easier! Woohoo!
    Love it. :)

  35. I wonder what they're talking about. "You go first." "No. You go first!"

    ReplyDelete
  36. "...in the misty, moisty morning..." Never thought I'd say this, but I love those chickens.
    Fabulous shot!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good shot Daryl. Yes, I also wondered where in New York you might have found this one...till I read the caption!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. What a fabulous photo..did you take it?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why did the chicken cross the road? Why, to help with the composition of Daryl's photograph, of course!

    I love bw photography, as you know, and one of my favorite subjects is dirt roads like this one. I really like this, and...

    I hope Mister Rooster will forgive me for calling him a chicken. ;-)

  40. Very cool. And the roosters (?) get first look but the fog at the other end of the curvy road is intriguing as well. Wonder what those two were talking about? Maybe one is a hen and they are hatching a plan to go away together? Not that two roosters couldn't go off together...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Daryl, I love the roosters and the foggy look of the photo! Thank you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. it's the quality of the light that moves me. There is something special about this photo.

  43. Do you know what I love about you? You travel? Do you know how many people I've met from the East Coast who not only haven't traveled but have no desire to do so. No wonder people are so narrow-minded. You? Not so much.

    And the picture is SOOOOOOOOO fabulous!

    (At first I was wondering if there were chickens in Central Park.)

  44. I soooo heart this shot and it's perfect in B&W. It's so atmospheric!
