Gad, this is beautiful! SO much about it to appreciate and savor, including the sumptuous tones and the great direction of focus! Really, REALLY NICE! Voted

Wow! Thanks so much, Lin, for your effusive reaction to this. I remember taking it and having to remain so quiet so they wouldn't notice me and move.

Madeline Ellis replied:

Thanks also, Lin, for your vote.

Love the simple emotion and 'slice of life' feel from this image, Madeline. v

Thanks so much Constance. I remember trying to be obsequious when I took this photo. They were so absorbed in the game, they did not notice me. Thanks for your vote and it is nice to know that this photo is now one of your favorites.

Thanks so much Bret! I am gratified to know that you like this photo.

Madeline, I'm delighted to know that. You, in turn, have made my day.

Madeline, congratulations on having this image featured on the home page of Street Photography. It's definitely one of my all-time favorites. I actually think about this photo quite often--it made that much of an impression on me from the first time I saw it.

Madeline Ellis replied:

Connie, it is so kind of you and I am so delighted that this photo has left an impression on you for so long. As a photographer, that is something you hope for. I feel very gratified and you have made my day.

Frank, thanks for the feature!

Thanks to all those I did not thank before. I appreciate your supportive comments.

Terrific composition, light....nostalgia. Love it!

Fantastic shot... great athmosphere... Thank you for your comment on my ''Sunflower detail'' .... Ana

Wonderful Capture !! You have captured a moment and a story !!

Madeline Ellis replied:

Ayan, I really appreciate your wonderful comment. Thanks.

This is such a wonderful candid shot, which I appreciate so much. (Staged photos can be so boring and without emotion or fake emotions.) This is just really nice work, showing the complete being in the mind and absolute focus. And the monochrome allows us to concentrate on the men, not the surroundings. Excellent!

Madeline Ellis replied:

Lenore, thanks for your wonderful and supportive comment.

Thanks for such nice comments on this photo. Madeline

awesome image!

Wonderful picture.

I agree with Ramel and the others who admire your work. Shine on. Also thanks for the endearing comment about my butterfly painting.

Thanks for the comment Madeline.... you take wonderful pictures. I love pictures that seem to tell a story.

One of those singular New York moments beautifully captured, Madeline.

Thanks so much for the comments.
