    Eric, it is a real pleasure to find me on one of your pages and in such good company. Having thanked you, I really want to compliment all the others for the magnificent quality of their images. For my part, I remain a huge supporter of the grainy effect. Well. I would participate gladly more often in the very interesting discussions of your blog… if my written English was not so weak.

      A pleasure for myself as well. If you would like to also write a blog post for us, please shoot me an email ;)

        I’m a writer and a journalist. So, it’s not difficult for me to write a blog post and I do write it almost every day on my own blog… … but unfortunately only in French or Italian.

    Miroslav Kormoš captured a rare moment where “The businessman” is engrossed in a single moment while the world around him, in atypical fashion, is full of buzz from a younger generation on the go, rushing through their day leaving an ironic and unexpected scene. I love it.

    Love this shots! My fav are the Babushkas.

  • http://danacvoss.blogspot.com/ Dana Voss

    Close call between the “Babushkas” by Anne McKinnell and “Untitled” by Miroslav Kormoš for me.

    Michael Penn’s “Philadelphia 155″ is a great image showing an interesting perspective, and I love the humour of “Morbid Trilogy” by Carsten. Septembre à Montréal” by Marco Carbocci is fascinating – so much to look at in there, but I keep coming back to Miroslav Kormoš’s “Untitled” – it has an emotional content that I really like. I wonder what he is reading…

    my fave is “(the only one who doesn’t have name! lol.)” by Jessie O’Rourke.
    the two man looks like they have their own world and quite enjoying it. :)

    Great post! Babushkas and Exchange Info are tops! Man I love the look and feel of film…

  • Bruce Clayton

    “Coffee shop cowboy” or “Babushkas” I really can’t decide..The first one because of the “feel/mood” and the second for personality and composition..

  • http://www.wanderinglulu.com Ewanglee

    I love “Babushkas”, “Exchange of Infos” and “Untitled” (Kormos). They capture the spirit of the moment.
