PoW! 28th Week

The sun and the moon and the pattern
Of the sand and some french fries sticks

Make my mind wander to places I yearn
To the sanctuary that the silence speaks.

But here I am underneath this passage
Counting my days straight into old age!

Here are this week's FPC's PoW!s, in no order of preference:

Watery Desert
"Watery Desert"

No Exifs Available

Photographer's Description: Sunset at White Island Camiguin. The sky was overcast the whole afternoon. I already gave up hope of ever seeing the sun. So I decided take a swim and enjoy the beach, instead. Then a miracle happened, the sun decided to take peek! My officemates were shocked to seem me running and jumping along they beach, frantically trying to shake myself dry so that I'll be able to take some pictures. :D Hehehe. :D

Editor's Comment: I pretty much love everything on this photo. The pattern of the sand, The Clouds, the reflection of the sun with the flare. Great wide angle shot. Love it.

Editor's Comment: Very creative use of lines and colors. It's a wonder to me how laz'andre is able to see art in what appears to be simple everyday objects. I still can't figure out what it is. Is it a fence, a trellis, part of a bench . . . I guess that's where the magic of this photo is - in it's mystery.

Photographer's Description: untold story (as suggested by rarerimages)

intentionally allowed the sky to blow out to get detail on the stonework, the walkway above the tunnel is a very popular jogging route in central park and the buildings behind are the metropolitan museum of art (the met) and apartment buildings along fifth avenue.

initially took this photo in color but the blownout highlights didnt work for me so i thought that converting it to monochrome would work and i liked it better that way.

the musician was playing and singing rambling man and did it very well.

there are several versions later in the photostream that are colored versions of this but still the guitarist is sillhouetted. up to the viewer to decide if they like it or not. :)

Editor's Comment: A rarer B&W find from about 7 options from 30 pages of the FPC photo pool! What makes this photo awesome is the artful inclusion of the branches and building over and beyond the overpass. How it was done, Lenny will explain in the photo page, but however it is, the end makes us crave for the means! The human figures beneath the archway and another beyond adds to the mystery of the photo's "untold story."
