This is a slide (in plaster) that was in Retiro Park ( Madrid) ... an Hawaiana has been forget by a slidder... the only evidence that rest from his presence there (I tell you it belongs to a man), in that day. Insignificant...most of us let behind life less than this...
Life is a slide full of connotations

سلام ترزای عزیز

برایتان آرزوی موفقیت و سلامتی دارم


Olá Teresa!
Wonderful B&W photo!Nice idea and composition!
um abraço

Boa tarde Teresa,
Como sempre suas fotos são uma poesia.

O destaque da Havaiana colorida contra o fundo rústico em B&P, bem como a posição que ela tem em toda a composição, com a conotação de estar subindo a parede curva, fazem desta foto algo bastante especial.
E melhor ainda com seu texto que nos faz pensar.

Abraço e bom final de semana,

Hi Teresat
An interesting and artistic composition and a unique contribution to theme where you showed an abstract shot,well captured and well thought.
Best Wishes

Hi Teresat

A fantastic image & good work on the partial desaturation. Excellent sharpness & nice tonal range & graphism. This is a wonderful addition to the Friday connotation theme. Obrigado!

Querida amiga Teresa,
Aqui você se superou e foi à Grécia dos sofistas (oque já é uma outra conotação) para buscar uma sandália de Empedocles para ilustrar o Tema. :0)
Além disso produziu um preto e branco de grandes virtudes, nuances e movimento.
Muita admiração,

I see what you are doing here! I like this! The connotation that MAN was here! Very nice work Teresa! I like the selective color on this!

Hi Teresa,

You have understand perfectly the theme! And your entry is a pertinent exemple!
I like the sense of proportion here, Life is matter of contrast, here, force and vulnerability. Fugitive passage in Life!
Very beautifully done!


yes it is a good composition and well thought also.

bonjour Teresa
Très artistique, on croirait une photo très travaillée de studio, tu as su tirer parti formidablement du graphisme de l'usure; c'est comme un dessin moderne et symbolique
um abraço

Hello Teresa :)

The a full composition of swing and imagination.
Perfect light and effect in colours black and white /except the sandal/.
The splendid realization, I like him very much.

My best wishes.

Ola Teresa , it belonged to a man , hey hey how fancy and fashionable can a man become wearing those , humm i may be old fashioned then because i will not be wearing those at the beach nor anywhere for that matter , hihi but interestingly you have caught something interesting in this scene , leaving the beach sandal colored against the monochrome slide stressing the significance even more , he left it there after doing his exercice a sign of his presence at one moment in time , time regulates our lives not only it does that but it shows human kind is so diminutive in the face of eternity as it has the high hand in terms of immortality !
Great to see you participating my friend , a fine contribution for this Fridays "connotation" theme ,bravo !
Um abraço,

HI Teresat....great shot...excellent tones and shapes. I like the shoe....Teresat take a look at the paintings of Andrew Wyeth. I am going to start taking shots using compositions and tones like he did and I think you would like it as well.


This is simply an amazing entry to the last Friday's theme, dear Teresa!

Great focus with amazing colors.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and light is professionally handled.
Great work!

Um abracos,

Hi Teresa,
I like your vision of the world where a simple object tell us a story. Thanks for sharing this !
Kind regards

Hi Teresa someone wrote in my autograph book a long time ago "Life is like a sheet of driven snow so
be careful where you tread for every step will show"
Your shot reminded me of that verse and inevitable question what kind of mark wil we leave behind.
Good entry for Fridays theme

Hello Teresat,the sandal in sharp focus and colour is such a contrast to the rather battered looking slide.
Very well observed.
The idea is thought provoking.Well done.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Teresa,
Brilliant shot.
Nothing more to say.

Olá teresa
artistic approach in presenting a lost Hawaiana. a great display of a minimalistic scene.
unique use of a common item. A wonderful poster with the most interesting connotation.

Teresat, I am still not sure whether the image paints your words or your words paint the image. Very elegant on both accounts. I enjoy your work.

Bonjour Teresat,
On a envie de la chausser et de se laisser aller surcette vague...
L'image est surprenante de part sa composition oet de son esthétisme...
Bien vu et bien pris...

mais uma grande foto teresa. Gostei também da nota que acompanha a foto.

Hello Teresat!
You have presented this shot very well. You are a fan of B/W and you use this medium very well. In thumbnail mode i couldn't notice what's that object on a striped BG. But now i see have made a great shot of something that everybody may see in daily life, without any remarks. TFS.

Hello My Friend.

Once more you evoke truth, memories soulful realities to your work, I can easily loose myself amoungst your creativeness, this is no exception.

You have the knack of portaying what you feel and/or what you want to say.

The harsh shading and the lone shoe emit much emotion and thought, your crop techniques has the final say to you work.....priceless.

Stv :)))
