  1. Thanks for sharing this picture from Sander, which I did not know. Sander is one of my favourite photographers. He is certainly one of the most inspiring. What is surprising in this picture is that Sander puts all the main elements in the same place. The centre of the picture is not all that easy to read, as a result. Or do you think the dog props up the bike?

  2. This is a fabulous image. There almost an innocent “glow” that surrounds the child which really draws you into the image. The dog certainly add a second level of interest, but the focus is all on the child.

    I love this because the set up is so unusual you can’t help but image how he staged the photo to get such a perfect shot. Timing and lighting (outdoors no less) conditions were all working against him. Incredible.

  3. Hello! Its good to find such topical stuff on the Web as I have been able to fiind here. I agree with most of what is written here and Ill be returning to this site again. Thanks again for posting such great reading material!!
