  • dig the blur, very nice urban shot.. :)

  • took me a few minutes to notice the buildings in the background – they are a nice still point and contrast to the motion in the foreground. will it sound too dramatic if i say the buildings feel like silent witnesses.

  • Beautiful movement, I like it in b/w too.
