♫♫ Beatle Zebra Crossing ♫♫

Zebra Crossing

a poem by Helen

There it was just sitting
in the middle of the street
all black and white
waiting
for traveling feet

Herds of milling bipeds
traversed across it
as it stretched across
a sweltering pit of tar

While masses of
Auto.. mo.. biles
broke it’s back
wait
I think...
they call them...
Cars?

I just stood back

Watching

Waiting

Wondering

just contemplating

But still…
I was at a complete loss

I keep a vigil at the curb
waiting
for the zebra to come
and wondering…

*how do they know where to cross?

I really like the point of view on #1. Love the glistening and sharpness of the ground and the softness of the background/people. Very nice composition, but I am sad to read that this is the last pictures. I hope there is a day 12 and so forth smile

#1 is so good, can be from a Japanese film; That style it has over it.

Very good shout! I also love, for a series that makes such wonderful use of dramatic colour, how well some convert to B&W.

Strong cinamatic colors works most of the times good in monochrome

#1 love the hazy, dream-like mood in this one.....
#2 great deep focus and fine details....pre-covid....no doubt....I hope we can all return to carefree fun times like these again....sigh...
#3 the motion blur of her hands, certainly reminds me of the sounds & smells and excitement of a tepanaki meal preparation....
#4 Ooooooo.....La'La'...I'm drooling now, so your image accomplished what you were trying to convey! I think I even smelled it!
Interesting music & whimsical verse, makes for a nice accompaniment, as well!!
Glad to see U2 back here on PB!!!
Always pleasure, Amigos!
