We have lost not only a brave person today, but also one who saw more than his illness, and has encouraged so many by his positive attitude and efforts to help others.
It was so good to read that Stephen Sutton passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of this morning, Wednesday 14th May.


Many thanks for your clicks and comments on Cleaning Windows and especially to Colleen for her much appreciated User Award SmileSmile


In response to Nathan wondering how yesterday's photo would look in B/W, I have uploaded today's image as a mono
Thanks for looking SmileSmile

Stephen Sutton was an inspiration to many of us. He was brave through to the end. His charity efforts will go a long way to improve the lives of others with Cancer.
Your image works in mono but I still think the beautiful colours made the image special.

I do like mono images, but in this case I do prefer the colour.

If the background were even more out of focus the suds would stand out very prominently and this work better. With the suds all in the same plane, you would be fine if you had been able to shoot at f/2.8 and still have them sharp and the background very diffuse. Either that or get back from the window and use a longer lens.

Well done for taking on board Nathan's suggestion.

I'll comment first and then go check back on yesterdays. I see a little boys face on this with his tongue out pressed against the window. You know how kids do, well some anyway. And another person behind him. Interesting for sure. I like it. Now I'll go check yesterdays.

Lovely tribute Helen.
The mono puts more emphasis on the suds
and works really well in mono.

Yes, a sad loss, but a fine tribute, Helen. Looks good in mono, but has to be the colour version for me too Wink
