  3. As always your picture put a spell on me Sean.
    This series is like a rollercoaster ride in emotions.
    And without one word you make me feel what this boy must have felt.

    You're my hero Sean!

  7. Boys will be boys. Somehow they always try to walk and keep within the line. Thats what my boy do too when he sees lines like this! Have a nice day.

  11. The use of a sequence is very powerful here ... inspired photography.

  12. I understand why you did it, but I don't like your numbers.
    I like your titles better.

  13. Some answers...

    1. I dont title my photos anymore for concern over possible legal issues. Some comments awhile ago made me think about the titles and while I have no problem communicating my thoughts on a photograph I didnt want to be prescriptive. Many people I put on this blog do not know they are going to be there and while I do not hide the fact I also do not want to "label" them something which may be offensive. Primarily due to the fact that I have been led to believe that I may find myself in a little deep water by doing the wrong thing. No one can argue with a photograph but they can with a "title" particularly wrt a somewhat cynical outlook which I may have :)

    2. Julie - I have chosen not to publish your comment... he was walking on the black lines and then on the white. Parents were around and therefore while I understand your comment, the fact that I didnt title this has led you to a somewhat cynical outlook, and that is what photographs are all about. This, the parents were closely around, watching and he was merely having a little fun with one of the parents funnily enough... it is an interesting correlation you portray though and perhaps highlights the impact that the issue had on you at that time!

    For the record, if I was going to title this, I would have called it, something along the lines of, "Safety on the black lines: Confidence, insecurity, guidance and caution"

  16. Yes it is okay that you did not publish. However, I dont think it was cynacism that led me to that. It was just an instant visual response.

    BTW, I am soooo glad you did not give it that title ... 95 will do just fine!

  17. I like the sequence - the boy doesn't look tired to me, perhaps a little bit lost in his thoughts and absorbed in the game of walking the lines.
