"Guess Which One's Me!"

By RonnieAG
An archival fun shot for Sunday.
I rather liked the shadows cast by this line of trees but felt I could improve the composition by getting in on the act.......standing one legged, of course, and keeping an eye out for any passersby who might query my sanity (not easy in a public park in mid summer).
For any who had an idea that I might be "crackers", well, I'm afraid I have supplied some evidence towards bolstering that belief.

Details: see EXIF

Many thanks indeed for all the nice comments on "A Touch of Mauve" and with special thanks to Andy ("andylea") for his GEA which is so greatly appreciated.

Ronnie.

Super long shadows Ronnie.
Good range of green tones.
And I would not worry about passers by.It would have been worse had you been standing on your head !!

Made me smile, even at this unlikely hour!! I'm a great fan of shadows and reflections, so this one plus its humour is right up my street! Great composition.

Now I see what you meant, Ronnie!! That is hilarious! How do you take a photo on one leg? It's hard enough keeping still on two!! Great shot!

hi Ronnie, interesting image and the shadows, one of the shadow in the foreground looks life a lamp post or a hand pump. This is a very very interesting capture. It is really a sunday puzzle.. ha ha.. hp you r keeping well. Take care..

Ronnie this is a really really interesting shot and it pulls you into it - who would have thought a hedge/trees and a patch of grass could be such fun! A great idea! Obviously the back was holding up well then!! Louise

Love it! I must be as mad as you, I was at a nature reserve yesterday and the only snowdrops I could find were in the car park, hence me lying flat out in the car park, grubbing about in the mud (and hopefully not dog poo!) Even worse they were the tattiest snowdrops I've ever seen in my life!

And of course, not only were you standing on one leg, but it was probably your right one and you held the camera behind your back. No? Ah well, it is a clever use of the sunlight and quite amusing. Richard

Great fun and a lovely green image Ronnie. At first glance I thought the centre shadow was one of those old-fashioned water pumps with a handle Wink

Breaking all the rules..............and getting away with it brilliantly, nice to see you were sensible enough to use a monopod anyhow..........didn't you Ronnie,..........lol!
Rgds., Jim
PS. How does it feel to be mistaken for a waterpump? Wink
15 Mar 2011 10:01AM
Wonderfully comical image with a self portrait in ther too, I thought at first that you had stood in something unmentionable...lol. The shadows are veryspecial my friend.

Never mind Ronnie, if we togs don't do strange things from time to time to get a better image, we're not normal... even if.... anybody else thinks different. Wink
