Danke, Uwe! Trotz aller "Unordnung" war's für mich von Anfang an ein logisches Motiv, und die kaum durchbrochene Monochromatizität fand ich zusätzlich reizvoll

Yes, Carl, these are different enough to make the attractiveness of the pairing inexplicable. But I, too, did like the relationship between the images at once.

In John Banvilles Buch 'The Infinities' habe ich die (sinngemäße) Definition für die göttlichen Wesen (Hermes, Zeus et. al.) gelesen, dass diese diejenigen seien, die den Anblick oder die Erkenntnis all des Traurigen, Bösen, Grausamen aushalten (können), im Gegensatz zu den sterblichen Menschen.

Jeff, I did not find that many murals in Ireland, more painted advertisements. But here in Germany, both are rare

And don't forget the mossy Irish green at least in traces all around

... wherever I go, there's at least some weed!

Yes, Sherri, I think the combination makes it a picture. The singular elements are not that spectacular, but the scenery as a whole creates visual interest

Nur, Hans, manchmal haben's die einfacher, die sie nicht sehen...

Markus Spring said at 2017-06-21 16:54:03:
Ja, und eine gewisse Neigung zur Ironie sollte der Fotograf natürlich auch noch haben...

Markus Spring said at 2017-06-21 16:51:37:
Ja, Hans, zwischen frischem Grün und (mehrheitlich) abblätternder alter Farbe. Aber es ist ein junges Land, auch mit vielen optimistischen Leuten

The shadow of the weed really makes that photo, I think. Along with the highlighted edges against the dark background.

The double yellow lines along the curb have shown up in some of your other Irish pictures. They just strike me as so weird since here a double yellow is always in the middle of the road and means "no passing." The curved sweep balances really well with the angular sweep of the building.

Note to self: The bokeh seems perfect in my eyes, despite this image being captured with a 35mm-equivalent lens on a m43-sensor, widely gauged as inappropriated for decent bokeh.

Really nice...the big open area of road surface at the bottom really works. There's just enough tonal variation there to make it an active element, not just a blank space. Road foregrounds can be a real problem for urban building pictures but this deals with it fine.

Könnte sehr gut zu meiner derzeitigen Red Snaps-Serie passen, obgleich diese die Augen eher öffnen als täuschen sollen ;-) Gruß, Uwe

Strange, I would have guessed Germany, not Ireland, from the look of the church. Then I looked more closely at the illumination-like patterns in the stained glass.

Klasse Bild. Perfekt Komponiert und linear austariert, und so schreitet man als Betrachter - imaginär - durchs Eingangstor hin zur Treppe, steigt hinauf, kommt auf der Plattform an, schaut sich um und sieht, ja was? Unter anderem den Fotografen, wie er versucht, das anspruchsvolle Industiemotiv aufzunehmen und dabei sowohl den Massen als auch den Linien der Architektur optisch gerecht zu werden und sie bildmäßig zu gestalten. Gruß Uwe

I like this as a pairing, though I'm not sure what makes it work well this way. Somehow the two balance each other.

Das Foto passt zur derzeitigen Themefarbe. Vielleicht zeigt das Gelb etwas Hoffnung? Aber irgendwo auf der Welt ist immer gerade etwas passiert, was das Schwarz erforderlich macht - nur ist es uns inzwischen immer näher gekommen.

This reminds me of the book title "Chlorinating The Gene Pool". Alas, there is no quick fix.
