A very effective powerful mono, Andrew. Had you W. H. Davies' Leisure in mind when you named the photo? Is it a self silhouette?

Thanks everyone. Very much a grab shot with a tele zoom.
Yes and no, Nezih. It's a quotation from one of my mother-in-law's favoutite poems. And no, it isn't me!
Best wishes,

Andrew

WHAT is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare?. No time to stand beneath the boughs, And stare as long as sheep and cows: No time to ... WH Davies. A great poem!

A Great compo and had you noticed that the rock in the top left corner resembles the mans pose!? It looks like his head and shoulders

It really is, Andy; I translated it into Turkish for that reason.

May be it is the same poem, Andrew.

Sorry for the ambiguity, Nezih: it is W.H.DAVIES, of course. My mother in law is always spouting it aloud when we're out and about and she wants to slow me down.

Thanks for the extended quotation, Andy.

And no, I hadn't noticed that rock Danny: weird.
Best wishes,

Andrew
