    I couldn’t resist showing you a truly great shot by Alexis Gerard. He is someone who I was following on Twitter and then his Flickr page. He has posted many excellent pictures but I think this one is particularly good and also fits this topic perfectly. There is so much in this picture that you can study it for a long time and keep finding new links, new shapes, new relationships. I didn’t notice the man in the doorway at first. It is real and surreal. The heavy shadows here are such a vital part of the picture, enabling links to be made which perhaps would not have been obvious, if visible at all. I have not asked permission to use this (he seems to be off line at present) but since this is a private forum at present…

    The more I look, the more I see. A great photograph.

    Thanks for showing us that photograph John. We are often told that it isnt a good idea to photograph in bright sunshinebut this months theme has proved that with a little care and thought you can still take some great photographs.
