The photographer and his faithful companion gaze upon a giant gazing ball.
I'm always a sucker for reflection shots like these. I think the ball could be used to be polished a tad, but otherwise it's a nice shot
Is this a fountain of sorts?
Nice weather, and it looks like this is situated at the edge of a park?
A pity that the glare of the sun gives us so little chance to really see "the photographer" and his "faithful companion"... now I am curious!
Have you ever thought about a very tight crop of this one, just to see what it would look like and if it could fool the viewer a little? If this were my pic, I'd at least test it all out .
It's a gazing ball from the thirties... I have a new one of course. My wife loves them they are quite nice. I hae never seen on on that kind of stand though. Very nice I like the shot and the subject.
Interesting! I've never seen (or gazed) at a gazing ball before!!
I gave the crop idea a try, but unfortunately the ball is too "scuffed" to provide decent reflections. I also used Noiseware to smooth out the image.
BTW: Here's the full view of the Gazing Ball.
