The Ghost of the human condition

Theme: Confessions of a self-obssessive

One day, all we will be is a memory to a loved one. People my age are dying all the time, some in war, some through illness and God knows whatever type of circumstances. I am thankfull I am still around to share my passion in photography with everyone. I am no better than those who have passed away but for the grace of God. Be thankfull to God today.

A bit different from yesterdays shot (thanx for all the comments people). Playing around with long exposures to produce a ghost like blurry effect (U know me, all for experimenting). I will definitely be trying these some more in the future.

With your comments about passing away I may have tried walking away rather than walking towards. Cool shot and I like the use of the bridge to frame the shot.

Yes, sorry this is just my opinion, but I beleive your wonderful piece might blend better with your black background without that white border.
(just my opinion, I have a right to it, right, and one to express it freely too, right?)
sk: thanx for ur nice comments, I see what U mean about the border, its a pity i can't take it off, its the way the site was set up
WoW!!!.....*speechless*
sk: the fact that u are speechless, i am speechless as well, is it possible
This is great stuff! Love it. Jose

I see what you mean. Quite different and a thought provoking concept as well. We could say you pretty much nailed the idea

Hey Jide,

Had a look at your website has recommended and I am dumbfounded in a good way. I have decided to add a comment against this picture in particular because it is my favourite.

Well done and keep up the good job, the pictures do capture the asiko and make you want to delve into the subjects further.

ciao
