cheatchatting thru life

Nikon D80 | 1/15 seconds | f 5.6 | ISO 160 | 200 mm
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I will always remember my first nikon week. it was also the first time when I was in the magic land of Sighisoara.. as you can see I was far for ready to use the camera, but I really like how it turned out this picture. I made me realized, again, the blessed period of childhood, without any wories..

"The child laughs: my wisdom and love is the game. The young man sings: my game and wisdom is the love. The old man says nothing: my love and game is the wisdom".
Lucian Blaga [a Romanian poet, playwright and philosopher. 1895 - 1961]
Lucian Blaga is the same who said “God, I have only one prayer: never let me be satisfied with myself!”

Yes, I see his expression is one of a carefree youth. Wonderful capture.

Yes, childhood those carefree days. You never understand how good those days before the stresses of the real world hit you, really are.

A very nice capture

I like how you've panned the camera leaving everything blurred but keeping the kid sharp.

A required effect or not? because the speed of 15 seconds very small often gives fuzzinesses a resolution the tripod, but very natural

blaga... one of my favorites philosophers back in high school days.
the image was it luck or premeditation? or both? :) but still is so beautiful

This is a prove that a picture must not always be sharp.

Oh yes, I remember the happy, carefree days of childhood. Oh, I wish life could be like that again but for me, it was all many decades ago. The blur is fine - it's typical for young people to be moving quickly.

The movement I'm seeing here, the contrast with the people around is simply amazing. Very well captured

Cheatchatting is the title. I was wondering and then read your comment. As you go through life, your view changes. To put it simple, when you are young youn spend energy on getting to know new things and experiences. When you are old, you spend the energy you have left to keep what you have.
