A child peers curiously through the glass of a public piece of art - Den Haag, Netherlands, 2008

This was a very lucky shot, in that all the elements just happened to line up nicely for me at the right time; the child looking up towards me in the foreground, my position mid-distance, and the disappearing figure where the top portion of my body should be. To me it represents the passage of time, aging, with youth and wonder in the foreground, reflection (me) at middle distance, and getting older/moving on in life with the figure in the background. Of course this is just my interpretation Smile

Probably also worth pointing out that there has been no digital manipulation to this photograph (apart from the obvious conversion to b&w and vignette)... all the elements as you see them were how they appeared at the time. The reflections and missing portions are all caused by the glass and mirrors of the art piece.

excellent photo. echos of Magritte with the man in the bg (you obviously) having a circle where his head should be, with another man walking away in your 'head'. Love the confusion

Luck is not a good excuse for a masterpiece Smile I love the expression on his face, and also the interpretation. Brilliant shot!

Most remarkable shot, and good for you for seeing this opportunity. I doubt it was luck, more like skillful observance.

Lucky shot or not. Brilliant. Some famous golfer once said (after being told that he had a lucky shot) - "Strange that you say that - the harder I try the luckier I seem to get"

You keep mentioning how lucky you are. With all due respect, nobody is this lucky! Remarkable photographs.
