This is a good job at conveying a part of our lives today. On the go, so much so that it's sometimes dizzing. That's certainly how this image makes me feel, dizzy. Nice interpretation and
composition,Dolores!

Thank you so much, Duane!! I'm delighted this has multiple interpretations! To my interpretation...the escalator that is descending shows no movement due to it being "out of order"...as opposed to the blurry ascending escalator showing movement of the person on it. I sincerely appreciate that you took time to view my photo, Duane! Many thanks for your kindness.

Lol, even before I saw your name I thought of YOU!

Great photo Dolores...well the shot is but I've had that happen so often and have to 'climb' the stairs...for whatever reason, it seems far more difficult than regular stairs.ha

You sure know how to make opportunity work for you! Your eye for angle and composition is awesome.

Nice work, Dolores. This is so well thought out. The composition, colors, action and lack of action all work well together. Good job!

HI Carol!! Thank you so much! The escalator was descending with people and then stopped while I was photographing it! I knew I could have a completely different picture then..had my title ready and everything! Seems that escalators go out of order often, doesn't it?
Many thanks for your kindness!

Thanks so much, Mette!! I appreciate your comment!

Hi Damian!! Merci beaucoup!! Happy shooting!

Hy Lyn!! Thank you to you also! I'm looking forward to see your kitty shot in the finals next month!

Hi Murry!! What a complimentary post! It means an awful lot! Now I'll just wait to get arrested for shooting at the mall!! LOL!

HI Carolyn!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Thank you, dear one!! I was surprised that this was the shot that won 2nd place! It goes to show you that you never know what appeals to the judges! Many thanks for taking the time to comment, Donna. I know how difficult it is to keep up with dial-up so I value your comment even more...I'm still behind and it'll take me days to catch up! Happy day!
