While photographing the Angel of the North, a statue by Antony Gormley, another guy was taking a snap of his wife. I thought that this depicted the habit of taking photos where ever you were.

It's not clear what habit you mean. This seems to be someone on the left taking a photo of someone far in the background, near some sort of sculpture (Icarus?). It's a nice sunset.

I'm intrigued by the photo. I like the sky and the scale between the figures, however I have no idea what's going on and what it has to do with habits. What exactly is happening here?

This is the second time I've loked at this photo and I still don't get it. Is te guy in the corner taking a picture of the person in the distance? What is that thing at the top? Is that a person, a statue, a fence post...?
At any rate, only in very specific circumstances am I considering a hobby a habit for this challenge. Photography can be a passion, a need, an urge but that does not define it as a habit.

Aesthetically, I like the sky in this shot but I don't care for the arrangement of the sillouhetted figures. I have a feeling I will be in the minority with this opinion.

A very pleasing photo, though I haven't grasped the meaning (don't recognize the long, diagonal object).

Wonderful sunset and silhouettes. It's almosy 3-dimentional with the close figure and the far one. Very nice seeing.

Nice picture, but I have no idea what this could be, nor how it fits the challenge.
05/19/2004 08:09:40 PM
i cant tell what this is

How many times have I driven past this and thought - I must stop and take a photo
Its a difficult subject to capture, I've yet to see a really good angel, but this is a reasonable attempt. You got the wings in and the sky is very very nice. I would have liked a whole photographer instead of a half, but thats a small point.

All in all a good shot.
