I like being lost amongst the crowd.
Watching everybody go by.

A big group of ants.
I am one of them.

I like being lost amongst the crowd.
Do I?

Another picture from the sculpture of a man playing chess downtown Calgary.
This time the focus are the pawns.

What I like about this one is that if it was a movie the camera would move slowly by the pawns out of focus to, in the end, make it into a close up of the horse/knight in the back.

I like how it looks alone in the back there looking in the camera when everything else seems to look left and right.

But enough blah blah
Thanks for watching.

Here is the previous shot [link]

[update] Wow, I don't know how to thank you all for your messages and favs on this pic. I would have never expected it. Thanks!!!

It is natural lighting on a cloudy, snowy day. Late reply, I know but I have been away from Deviantart for some time :)

Also the horse looks as if its screaming, trying to be noticed.

The focus is so good.
