Escape is within reach, but the way is barred.

Had a stint as GE last week so spent loads of time looking at images I otherwise would never have seen.
I would recommend a week as GE for everyone. It makes you really think about the images, not just look at them, and only takes a max. of 2 hours a day for seven days.
I found new photographers whose images I liked, that I probably wouldn't have some across otherwise.

Thanks for all the comments and interest on my previous upload, I was surprised by its popularity!

Thanks for bothering.

A great shot....love your processing....
I totally agree that being GE is an eye opener, I also learnt so much about different genres of photography

It looks such a peaceful and comfortable place to be why would anyone want to escape.

This image is extremely strong, Malc. I could not squeeze through one of those squares, even in colour.
I have barred myself (Blush) from the GEship as my almost complete antipathy to photos of fur and feathers would impair my judgement. Unlike Herself I can't suspend my disbelief for a complete week. Better for me to be fair to the membership and stand aside.
It's quite enough to be a grumpy old git without heaping opprobrium on my own head!

Regards
Bill

It is a fun thing to do and like you say, you come across photographers you've never seen before and their awesome photos. This is a very good image Malc, really like it in mono. Does seem kind of like a prison with the bars.

Very nice. The regular, disciplined bars, the relaxed interior.
We really do need to explore Folkestone...

Interesting and excellent work, Malc.

Ken.

ps, I toyed with the idea of doing a GE some time ago and decided not to as my health is so up and down that I may not be able to spend the time doing it.

Disappointing, but I don't want to let anyone down.

A great mono Malcolm, like way the bars disect the image, and the centre square shows the line of flagstone leading the eye through the imageSmile

Superb shot indeed! I get that locked in feeling. The thing is am I looking from the outside-in or inside-out? Interesting vibes and very well crafted.
Kindest regards
