Excellent reflection on

what is good about the best opera performances: the immediacy of the voices, sung live. As if it's sung on the street... One of the best 'conceptual' street photo's I've seen on here. even though it may well be that you were not consciously conceptualizing when you spotted this. Best regards, Bert

Angles

I was more aware of the humor in the shot, I knew when I saw her that there was a shot there. What I like is the relationship of the angle of her arms to the pillars as well as the look on her face.

Nobody will hear you

I really like this picture, Ron, as it looks like a scream in the vacuum. I imagine her singing / crying / shouting for a noble cause and the people over her just looking at her as a show. "You may be strong and free, if you're alone, nobody will listen to you" is what your picture is telling to me. Very, very good shot Ron.

Shame on me

Please replace Ron by Lennie in the comment above One thousand time sorry, Leonard. Shame on me.

You can call me Ron as long as its not Ron Reagan, I have been called worse names than Ron.
