Look! Up in the Sky!

Manhattan, New York

The title is in reference to the old Superman TV program from the 1950s, "Look! Up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman!". 
For me, it should be, "Look where you're walking" because I slipped on ice and hurt my neck and head. I still like cold weather but I have to remember to be careful because I'm not Superman. :-)

  1. Brilliant shot capturing a wonderful regard d'un enfant.

    Are you ok?

  2. I guess if you are sitting and typing about your fall, it was not TOO bad, thank God!
    Falling down is always painful and so aggravating and embarrassing (as I remember well).
    Hope you were not photographing at the time.
    Hundreds of Israelis fell and broke bones in our recent snowstorm.
    Be well and safe, James.

  3. J'adorais faire du patin à glace quand j'étais plus jeune. J'ai arrêté, trop peur de me casser quelque chose.
    La photo est superbe!
    et j'espère que tu ne t'es pas refait mal à ton dos..
    Take a good care of you!

  7. Shots like this make me think of the paintings by LS Lowry - his stickmen. Google him and you'll see what I mean.

  11. Sans doute portes-tu une minerve, par précaution ?
    Après deux chutes de mon fauteuil de bureau (les satanées roulettes !) l'Hôm les a enlevées et le toubib vient de me dire que j'avais dû me fêler une côte :-(
    Je suis "une vieille dure à cuire", lol !
    2 fois en 6 semaines, c'était trop, of course !

  12. Like the way you played with the shutter speed, and how the boy stands out. ;-)

  13. I'm not sure what he's doing, but I do know it's a really nice photo. Everybody else in the photo is in motion because of that he's the only one in focus.

  16. Oh Wow! My mind is busy making up my own story to explain what stopped only that one skater and froze him, in obvious amazement, right in their track! I see your timing is as split second as ever!

  18. What a great capture! Hope you feeling better by now. Ice can be bad, I shattered my ankle, falling once. Ever so careful now.
