The Odd Ball

By Fefe
I will leave it up to you to spot the odd ball....and I do not mean the fella on the bench, he might be a very nice man for all I know 😉

This one has been sat on the hard drive for a while, October 2021 and taken at Swanage Pier.
All the little tiles you see in rows are memorial plaques in brass , it would take you a while to read them all, and that's a little bunch of flowers that might look like a bit of litter until you view large. They might spoil the symmetry a little but I decided to leave them in the image.
I also have this in colour, in the version.

Thrilled to bits with the response to my upload 'Footsteps' yesterday.....Thank you all so much!

Strong leading lines. B&W for me; it really shows those lines and brings out the drama in the sky.

That one unruly child that a lot of families have. If not restrained then they will disappear.

Very old joke about balls: Why are policemens' balls bigger than firemens'? Because they sell more tickets...

Yep, centre left. Why aren't they all like that one? Wink

Love the detail in the mono but that lovely story and emotion in the colour. Has the gentleman placed the flowers and is now just reflecting? The odd ball, well there is always one...

B&W Diane, cracking leading lines, pier and people image.

That's a new one Diane still in it's wrapper! Mono image for me it gives it a certain feel.
Sorry out of awards today as I think it's worthy of one!
