Great image, strange figure. Adam, do you think? Beautiful.
Very beautiful captured indeed,look great in B&W.
Looks like he had a really tough work out and it taking a breather. Hand the man a Gatorade.
fabulous! another great monochrome shot!
Flea, it looks like he already had a grape Gatorade!fantastic shot you wild and crazy woman.
Great shot for monochrome monday...I'm amazed that you still have your vintage 35 mm photos withineasy access. I haven't a clue whathappened to the majority of mine.
He looks like a construction worker on his lunch break after a very difficult morning. Either that or the sculpture next door just dumped him ;-).
I am overcome with captionitis... so I'll only say 'darn good!'.
Nice! But why is he crying?
Lovely. Just look at his face! Wonderful shot Daryl.
Did you think I would miss a monochrome monday? Silly Daryl!
Another good find, looks like he has a lot to say..;-/
that's a beautyI love the fingers, they seem so suppleamazing to do that in stone!I love when you say 'youse' ;)
I always enjoy seeing your photos. You have added another good one to the list.
Wow! Very cool idea =)
We's are so happy you did!
Great shot, poor fellow though - looking like he was having stomach ache! ;-)
a very powerful image specially in mono!
i was about to comment and then i saw Flea's comment. Literally took the words out of my mouth :)
When the statue first came on screen, I smiled - the posture is so endearing. Then I thought he is crying and I felt sad with him. Then I wondered if it is blood which is streaming from his eye and that he is an image of suffering. Then I began to feel it's all a bit gruesome.And I've ended up not knowing which is the right response - but experiencing them all.Lucy
This is a great shot--the tonality, the vignetting--it's fascinating. If you still have that camera, you should load it with film and shoot away!
This reminds me of something out of The Devil's Advocate.
Oh so beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Makes my day a little bit nicer :)
Maybe I should hang on to my 35 mm Konica after all and fill it with b/w film! I was told recently that all my non-digital equipment is worthless, untradable!Nice contrast in more white than black!
Perfect for Monochrome Monday! What a capture!
He looks like he's crying. Wonderful monochrome.
i wonder, if these statues have feelings.... what would they feel. excellent shot
I love monochrome mondays at your place....
I've seen this in Italy too - they throw paint to vandalize statures. It makes very dramatic image though. Amazing quality. You did fantastic job with the film and the silver!Sorry you had problem posting on my blog - must be Wordpress - I have no filters. Thank you for you words - they mean a lot to me!
Ooooh. I like this! And "youse" sounds SO new yawk!
Youse done good. Youse.
That's kinda how I feel this morning. Saw the movie - In Bruges......very interesting.
Represents the cold wind, Daryl! An interesting and better-looking gargoyle! :) My monochrome goes up late on Tuesday.
A "classic" 35mm B & W! Thanks for sharing.
That is absolutely beautiful. It almost looks like you have drawn it.
you do a most fab job on this...amazing capture.
Truly and ugly looking creature! Yikes!Great photo though...nothing like old 35 mm b&w's...
Nice shot! He looks a little bit sad or angry!!
... perhaps he had too much Belgian beer ... poor guy ... ;-)Nice shot - gives way to many interpretations ...
You read my stuff today, so you'll get this. That's what I looked like in the shower on Saturday...
Great monochrom image, Daryl!
Wow, that's a powerful sculpture. Great shot.
He looks like he doesn't agree with the umpire. At all. Love that shot.
This is gorgeous. I'm not smart enough to understand the sculpture -it's very unusual and unexpected to my naive eye--but the photo is wonderful.
Wonderful! I love it.
You always have such unique images!
Have never seen a sculpture that looked so exhausted. As though he had just burst through the jungle, or a crate (it's hard for me to tell). Do they say "youse" in Bruges? ;)
Expect he needs a little 'hair of the dog'. So, what's the real story behind this image - certainly there is one.
what a striking figure. I love this, another good monochrome.I linked to you tonight Daryl, hope you like the post.: )
Definitely a good choice for B&W. I haven't a clue as to where my old 35 mm's are!!
amazing facial expression...and dont sculptures and statues look wonderful in black and white...I think the carving shows more definition...
That is very strange but lovely. Brilliant.
I like the shot, it's good to see something on film, it has a different quality to digital. I suspect that a digital camera would have been 'sharper' and that would have detracted from the roundness and weathering on the stone.
Is he puking och breathing hard? ;) A very well made statue that looks good in B&W.
Very interesting Daryl. Of course you know I am a fan of black and white.<><
And I must thank you for sharing!
I like the nice old and washed out look on that portrait! Superbly captured.- Pixellicious Photos
I really like this sort of thing..nice one.
This is nice!
Interesting face on that statue!
Merci beaucoup mille fois! You knew I'd be all over this fine photograph. BRAVO, a decade later.V
I need to get whatever it is that lets one scan/digitalize. Would never guess this wasn't originally digital.
"Scan/digitalize"? Is that anything like "scandalize"? Nevermind.Love the grit that you can only get from film. And I didn't notice him over there, but if Aileni has seen this he's doing a Snoopy dance I imagine. Whups! Yep, there he is!Great shot!
