Time Passing by spyed Time Passing by spyed
Time Passes.

My hope as another passenger on this steel ride is that by the time I reached the bottom, I would have noticed in person the young couple kissing and this older woman watching, and that I might have some awareness of what she might be thinking, if anything.

Instead, I took a shot and kept on in my head about a variety of other things.

But even if I was in my head, even then I'd hope that by the time I reached the bottom I had figured out my next plan or strategy or resolved what was tumbling around up there.

Because time passes, and we're lucky to get to the bottom, and even luckier if we used the time wisely.

Woah, this is a crazy picture! When I look at the bottom of the left-hand escalator, it feels like I'm looking UP at it! This must be some kind of Labyrinth maze! :D

worse, I recognise that place, BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER WHICH STATION IT IS.

oh, and how did you take this without tripping over and falling down the whole escalator? Hahaha :XD:

I'm quite surprised the comments doesn't say "camera got destroyed fallingg all the way down because someone in a rush slammed into me" seeing as you're standing on the wrong side =P

I really liked your perspective.. changing your mind.. from when you were on the top.. to when arriving near the bottom..someone's perpective and objective can dramatically change! Mine does in everyday life too.. Great example.. thank you! :)

This one caught my eye in my updates, I really loved the perspective on this one and the young couple at the end was nice for the shot.

The underground is weird, especially from Waterloo - every time I go down their escalators my ears pop *-* then there is oxford circus ... it's the twilight zone for me - when I went to see NIN at Brixton academy we somehow found ourselves lost in that station for 20 minutes before we found our way out!:lol:

i think you are getting better at Street . the only thing you need is to add a small story

like i am giving you advice .

but i'm just saying .. my small pageviews are based on the stories under my semi good pictures ..

and i have earned each and everyone of them based on conceptual art

pictures - stories = conceptual art

you are really getting better in you picture taking .. perhaps one day you will earn a daily DEV .. - grin i have 3 - go figure angelo

thanks for the advice pooh.

I probably WON'T earn a daily deviation; and that's fine. last time i got a daily deviation i got really upset with the gallery moderator; i don't need the attention and it really upsets me that it takes a spot away from another artist.

i get way too much free attention for my art by running this joint, and no matter how good my work gets it would just be pure corruption if our gallery mods started faving staff and especially me! hehe

but, i know if I'm doing well if a piece I post gets a certain number of faves or comments relative to my others. etc. etc. so I'm super motivated by dA to keep going and attempting to get better.

thanks :)

taking a step back .. i understand you get unwanted artistic attention from being the big CEO ..

trust me friend . i will only comment if i like what you are doing ( grin )

and on the day you deserve a DEV .. i will let you know ( a DEV is both a curse and a blessing ) ..
