El-mundo,

I agree with you. There is too much narcissism, anger, pain, and egos on this beautiful planet. I have been keeping informed because I have a friend who has to watch it because he is a disabled advocate.
Good photo! It's clear and just great. :D

    What I said in the last 2 replies, applies to this one, god how time flies - 17 reviews and 43 messages to read - snapshots of life with hidden metaphors and means
    To express myself, this I've just done

    personally as an artist to artist to you
    I hope it shows! Go away the blues!!

Comment from Nancy Montana


I am so glad I read the explanation. Two very different animals sharing the same space in harmony. What a divine concept.

The focus in the photo is perfect despite the small size of the subjects. Well done!

How very simple yet powerful! First you have done a great job with the sharpness and lighting not making it to bright but enough to enhance it just right. I love how nature always manages to show us humans once again how respect can bring 2 different souls to the same place. Wonderful work!!

Editing,
A beautiful picture of both the common brown garden snail in it's stripped shell & the entwined shiny black Centepeds on the roting branch bathed in sunshine each minding it's own business. Beautiful composition framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Susan

Comment from Renate-Bertodi


beautiful concept- if only, but that is not how it works. For each good act we humans create a bad act. I keep some shells from when I lived near Cleethorpes in the house and at times include them in sketches. They are SOOOO gorgeous, th ose spiral shapes..

    Thank you so much for your kind and generous review, you are correct but it is nice to imagine a utopia, and a metaphor for me is the best expression! as always it is much appreciated! 😊

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


This is a troika--one is the third party! LoL!

They're like ebony & ivory--live together in perfect harmony.
Side by side on my piano keyboard, Oh Lord, why don't we?!?

A brilliant metaphor!

Well, this a rare find!
Thought provoking capture.
Subtle illumination.
I don't think that coiled tip is blown out; just needs repainting!

You have a penchant with wood as almost all your subject are wood-based... ;-)

Subdued lighting ample enough to cast soft highlights and faint shadows.
Dynamic diagonal framing.
So sharp in the large scale!
Congratulations!
Your images are getting crisp & clear! Bravooooo!
Thanks for sharing...

    Thank you so much Dick my friend for your kind and generous, in depth review, as always it is much appreciated my friend! Yeah it's dawned on me there is a lot of wood in my pictures, but then again I am predominantly a nature photographer so I guess it's inevitable! No there's no blow outs, I know what you mean about the shell though - no matter what angle or lighting it always looked that bright! Cheers! 😊

    ;-) You're most welcome, my friend!
Comment from Linda Wetzel


I loved your artist notes...and yes life would be so much better if we could coexist in harmony. The textures you captured in this shot are terrific. I like the light reflections on the snail shell and the ridges of the centipedes. The smooth bark of the tree limb is also appealing.

A beautiful shot. I think the centipedes are the highlight of this image although the similarity of forms is certainly eye catching. Great colors and superb composition.

    Thank you so much once more for your kind and generous review, I'm glad you like this piece as it was just a stroke of luck that photographically came out better than expected!! as always it is much appreciated my friend! 😊
Comment from Envision


Super interesting notes! But I have to say that I am glad I don't see black snake centipedes in my area! They are fascinating with all those legs, which show up nicely in this image. I like how the snail and the centipedes are not only sitting side by side but they both have a spiral shape when the centipedes curl up. The texture of the stick looks good too.

    Thank you so much for your kind and generous review, as always it is much appreciated my friend! The centipedes are tiny and harmless but just look a bit menacing, especially up close! 😊
