I like the different lines ‘ interaction with him.
Is his stance not somewhat active if not threatening or startled or am I missing the point? I like the lines and his matching outfit.
He was practicing t’ai chi on the grounds of City Hall. A place where serenity is in short supply. 😉
Ah..that explains his stance..and aides my understanding!!
Great lines and perfect for the challenge, Allan.
Hey Jane, thank you.
So many wonderful lines and contrast Allan with the human element very much in calm control of his situation.
I did kind of like seeing the sidewalks and landscaping direct my vision to and from him in a nearly harmonious way while he was in practice. The environment is a little too manicured; artificial, for my full appreciation in this shot but still tolerable.
goes well with the theme 🙂
Good job, maestro! Black and White was definitely required here 🙂
Thank you, Lily!
Maestro, I’m quite flattered!
Definitely a way to achieve serenity! I like the geometry and strong contrasts in your shot, Allan.
T’ai-chi is an amazing exercise and martial art.
Exactly. They always have to find the perfect serene spot to do their thing. 🙂
Yes, similar to feng shui and quigong, I think. The place to practice is important.
Thank you for the extended visit and many likes.
It was my pleasure!
The line from the walkway to the subject’s right foot makes the photo special.
The walkway draws the viewers eye to the man. So the viewer starts with the prominent walkway, discovers the man and follows him out of the frame to the left side, very nice.
Very much appreciated, Ron.
Nice lines in this shot.
This challenge reminded me of this Seinfeld episode where they were saying: “Serenity now! Serenity now!”
I haven’t seen that one. I’m going to have to look it up.
Such an interesting composition with the mostly geometric lines shapes against the organic form of the concentrated man. A lovely image.
Thank you, Otto.
I love this shot. Silent emotion. Really nice.
Not sure how I did it, but my comment was supposed to be for “Furrowed Brow”, but this is a lovely image, too!
Very much appreciated on both shots, Victoria.
