Detail of the fine sculpture by Fenwick Lawson in Durham.
I recognised this immediately Bill! A fine close up from this wonderful statue.
It almost looks like a stone carving Bill. Sometimes the part is better than the whole as you have demonstrated here.
super shot with wonderful texture
The hand is the star of the image despite despite not being the point of focus, it is for the eye of the viewer. We as humans are very touchy people, always wanting to run our fingers over things and use a sense we are rarely really aware of. Some people shy away from the touch of another's hand and others stretch out to meet the contact.
The hand here is in support, that final support on the way to the end of the journey of life. A beautiful and telling selection from a larger work Bill, you do pick well.
I admit to googling, because I couldn't figure out the statue's stance, I do now, and feel the better for the viewing.
Super composition. I've read Dougie's comment above and to some extent agree. However I do find that because the face is so dark it recedes into the b/g so that we hardly notice it even though it constitutes a huge part of the picture. I wonder if that was your intention. It's an intriguing bit of focussing and mono work.
Such a deeply moving image
Looks a good sculpture and makes for a great image. - gary
A remarkably image Bill, you've captured the mood so well.
Fenwick Lawson is another guy that is new to me Bill.
Any relation to the telly cook Nigella Lawson by any chance ?
I could watch her hands in a bowl of flour all day long !!
Extremely moving, and beautifully photographed.
Following Dougie's comment, I'll google this later (just off out). Excellent partial capture, though Bill.
Wonderful emotion that the sculptor has created in this. Well photographed too ............Sandy
Bit like yesterday: I'm looking at this and thinking, what else can I see? No matter: what I can see is a superb mono, with perfect light and shadow in all the right places.
Thanks for your kind comments today (and every day, come to that).
Makes a great abstract, very nicely presented, Bill
Roll that rock up that hill. Well, that was my first thought. Very well taken.
I like the idea of getting in real close on this one Bill, it works well for me.
Tightly composed and full of interesting texture.
'Works as a unique monochrome Abstract View,' Bill~
Superb composition, tones, & details, here ~ LEx
A very moody mono Bill.
I see two subjects here, the head and the hand. Both so close to each other yet separated by a sideways 'S' shaped divider.
Excellent piece of work.
This image is all about fine detail, excellent work Bill
excellent close up
