I came across this in town yesterday. This time I was really at a loss for a title, unless "handlebar moustache" would be appropriate Wink

It took me a while to work out what was going on here, the handlebars and the face are out of proportion. Well of course they would be. Well-spotted and taken. At first I thought it was a girl praying before a triathlon.Wink

Handlebar Moustache is a perfect title, Rende. Couldn't work the image out at first, excellent spot.

Barred from talking Rende, unusual capture and lots to think about to try and get what she is thinking.

have a good weekend.

Title is excellent Rende and a great find, I wonder if it was accidental or a planned composition by the cyclist?

Praying to the brake God for the next mountain cycle event maybe?

In a million years I would not have guessed from the thumbnail that this was yours Rende. I'm glad you chose mono for this.

Entirely unique (to use a worn out word) and mesmerizing to look at. I'm intrigued by what she is wearing on her head and the beautiful lace - is this a nun on a bike, praying for protection in the traffic, maybe a bride praying she makes to church in time - I can definitely let my imagination play with this one.

Oh, did I say I like it Smile

"Wedding Gear" perhaps?

Of course the reason for the juxtaposition is obvious; the thoughts it inspires, another matter entirely. Perhaps I'd better shut up . . .
An inspired observation.

Superb composition ! I don't know about the title delima you had but from what I can read from this composition it should has to do with the contrast between the power of faith (as she is praying) and the credibility of technology that is standing just infront of her.

Ditto.
Extraordinary. Took a moment for the penny to drop. Found surrealism.

Sorry but I can't think of a title either. I suppose *** is as good as any.

Really well spotted and executed - doesn't need a title!

I'd be very pleased with myself if I'd seen this.
