This was a very memorable capture and a wonderful day in Copenhagen. 😊 Reply ↓ mariposa April 21, 2017 • 8:19 am I love black and white pictures. It gives an other dimension to the picture. Great work! Reply ↓ Susan April 20, 2017 • 8:44 am a wonderful and very cinematic shot, I LOVE it!! One of my top favorites of yours. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 20, 2017 • 8:54 am Hi Susan, That is so nice of you, thanks! It has a rather Hitchcockian feel. Very happy you like it– much appreciated! Reply ↓ pattimoed April 19, 2017 • 1:54 pm Great action/travel shot, Jane. Great work. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 20, 2017 • 8:51 am Thanks very much, Patti. Happy you enjoyed this one. I loved Copenhagen! Reply ↓ Buntag-Photo April 18, 2017 • 9:37 pm That’s a surreal landscape to travel through. I like all the geometry present in the image. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 20, 2017 • 8:50 am Thanks so much, Michael. It all adds to the chaotic feel, although, the reality is quite organized and quiet with all the bicycles. Reply ↓ LisaDay April 18, 2017 • 6:08 pm The photo sort of makes me anxious – I would not want to be in the middle of that commute. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 20, 2017 • 8:45 am Hi Lisa, I know what you mean! The biking culture is fascinating and very organized and civil. Quite amazing. This photo made it look more like a moment in a Hitchcock movie… Thanks for taking a ride with me! 🙂 Reply ↓ Otto von Münchow April 18, 2017 • 3:34 pm The is such a telling photo, saying Danish in so many ways, in all the bikers, the way they are dressed and of course in most Copenhagish of all places, the Rådhuspladsen. It’s a great photo, and I love all the elements you play so well together, there is so much to discoverer every, a beautiful dramaturgi and the dynamic movement across the frame. It all comes perfectly together. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 20, 2017 • 8:44 am Otto, Your comment makes me want to rush back to Copenhagen to photograph. I really appreciate you taking the time to analyze and react. This was a wonderful moment of “seeing”. (The Lumix!) Thank you so much and I hope all is well with you. Reply ↓ Otto von Münchow April 20, 2017 • 9:51 am All is well, thank you. 🙂 Reply ↓ Chillbrook April 18, 2017 • 12:49 am Super picture Jane! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 18, 2017 • 9:51 am Thanks so much, Adrian!

Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2017 • 8:23 pm Thanks, April! A story begging to be told. Glad you like it! Reply ↓ Lisa Gordon April 16, 2017 • 4:26 pm Fantastic image, Jane. The tones and contrast are wonderful here. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 16, 2017 • 8:23 pm Hi Lisa, Thank you. I thought this image was a perfect candidate for monochrome. Happy you agree. It was an exciting moment to capture this! Reply ↓ bluebrightly April 15, 2017 • 6:42 pm What a great shot, and beautiful tones, especially in the skin, wow. Great timing. I hope you are still able to get out and see the wildflowers near you – in the more elevated and less visited places maybe? I’ll be heading down into central/eastern OR in a few weeks for a few days, hoping to see at least a bit of the bloom on the way. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 15, 2017 • 10:26 pm Hi Lynn, Thank you! I thought it was especially dramatic in black and white. I shot it from a taxi which made it even more exciting. We are heading up to Mendocino this week and I am hoping the northern CA wildflowers are blooming. Enjoy your trip–I love that part of Oregon.

Reply ↓ Marie April 14, 2017 • 9:44 pm Love it. Almost looks like they are fleeing from the menacing alien in the background. 🙂 Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 15, 2017 • 3:23 pm Hi Marie, So true! The chaotic angles of the fountain and background make it seem like they need to make a getaway. 🙂 Glad you like it– thank you! Reply ↓ Jane Iwan April 14, 2017 • 8:33 pm Congratulations on the Monochromia post. That’s such a wonderful photo. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 15, 2017 • 3:22 pm Thank you, Jane.

Beautiful capture! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 15, 2017 • 3:21 pm HI Amy, So true– in all kinds of weather! A wonderful attitude and lifestyle. Glad you like this one– thanks! Reply ↓ Don Royster April 14, 2017 • 3:30 pm Kind of looks like the Invasion of the Bicycles. Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 15, 2017 • 3:20 pm Indeed, Don. That’s how all of Copenhagen feels! Much better than cars. 🙂 Reply ↓ Isabel F. Bernaldo de Quirós April 14, 2017 • 1:33 pm Wonderful! Reply ↓ Jane Lurie April 15, 2017 • 3:20 pm So glad you like it, Isabel.
