"there" are a series of moments taken at my homeplace, where we live our lives and building a family.

I'm trying to figure out the story in this image. Sorry, it's not coming. Are those tiny things animal footprints? The shading makes them look raised, which is confusing. If you were trying to illustrate the gathering of shoe prints and animal prints, keep trying. And get rid of the real legs. They draw too much attention.

Glad it's just not me Joe, I just don't get it.

Yeah. It's really no surprise - I won't get it as well, actually. :] That was wrong of me to post it here.

The idea is - to show a small and seemingly irrelevant moment from life around my living place. It's just shows our porch with cat's and bird's footprints, as my fiancee goes inside. I do understand, that as a standalone image it's empty. Not going to delete it, though - I hate, when people delete threads or images from forums :]

IF there's an interest, here are three other images from these series.external link

I am not one to comment a lot, but I quite like it. Maybe because I can relate to that sort of stampede that happens when you get home and the animals all want in at the same time, after being a while outside. It even tells me "I've been waiting for you freezing in the snow, you human...".

There might not be a story in it for everyone, but there is one for me. I also like the point of view, contrast and minimalistic setting.

I wouldn't toss it as I feel it does compliment the spirit of the other photographs in the series.

And every time I return to it, I smile because I'm imagining all sorts of stories... ah well.

I would like to see more of the door, looks like it has a lot of character....

very nice shot.

the paw prints were quite obvious to me and don't at all look raised, like the human legs but might try to make them more obvious and push the heel into the "rule of thirds" area.

Aye. It is a slight crop here, yeah. Tried your suggestion as well then, but that leaf and prints in the bottom left made it very difficult to crop them out/split/leave. This is the best I got considering all the things I wanted to leave in without losing that exact feel I had when rushed to grab that moment :]

Thanks.

It did what you intended, it shows the flow of life around your door and can make a person "think".

"there IV"... I see four different creatures represented there...one human present, one human past, a four-footed creature, and a bird. The paw prints exhibit impatience in gaining entry to the building whereas the humans are direct in their entrance. The bird tracks passing by without attention given to the doorway add interest to the scene by pointing out an interloper passing by that has little to no interest in the lives that the doorway conceals...the bird tracks add a little mystery.

Imagination, where would we be without it.... ;)

A great photo?...I dunno, I'm not a good critic. A story within it?....I'd say so.
