This one stopped me flat, before seeing what award it did get. Wonderful shot.
No surprise it won that one.
Luca Zanoni24-Jan-2007 22:31
Love it. v

A little late for my vote, but this image deserves the award. We don't see hats anymore in the US (except perhaps in Mennonite communities), so this is a bit of geographic history.

This is a strong one. Reminds me of a famous b/w photo of nuns, leaving a church, shot from above; their white triangular hats creating a compelling pattern.

Twas on a Holy Thursday their innocent faces clean
The children walking two & two in red & blue & green
Grey headed beadles walkd before with wands as white as snow
Till into the high dome of Pauls they like Thames waters flow

Reminds me Japan. Wonderful job, Sheila!
Guest 18-Apr-2006 18:40
Brilliant! For me, the one girl looking down really makes the shot. I could see this entitled "Individuality" or something. Very well done.

You must have gotten SO excited a the visual possibilities, lol! You are one of my favorite artists! As soon as this photo popped up, I was thinking "Oh! Look! Look! Look what Sheila's done now!" This is not a site we'd see here. I am green with envy, and you have all those beautiful birds, too!
