The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

You are one of the few who have posted a photo in black and white. It's perfect for this shot! Greetings for the New Year, and I wish you much happiness and good health for 2009. Kate of Visual St. Paul and Mazatlan, Mexico.

I also like the black and white effect in this photo with only the face in color.

Happy New Year to you and your family from Patty and Abe.

Me pregunté que disparó usted fijaría para este tema, Carroal. Usted es uno de los muy el mejores fotógrafos creativos entre nuestra comunidad CDPB, y no pienso que cualquiera de nosotros sería capaz de picotear sólo uno de sus tiros de 2008. Sé que yo seguro no podría. Su trabajo es siempre inspirador a mí, y lamento que yo no tuviera más tiempo para estudiar sus tiros.
Hay tanto para ver en una de sus imágenes.
¡Le deseo la salud buena y mucha felicidad en 2009! ¡Y grandes fotos, por supuesto!

I wondered which shot you would post for this theme, Carroal. You are one of the very best creative photographers among our CDPB community, and I don't think any of us would be able to pick just one of your 2008 shots. I know I sure couldn't. Your work is always inspiring to me, and I wish I had more time to study your shots.
There is so much to see in one of your images.
I am wishing you good health and much happiness in 2009! And great photos, of course!
