No Limitations by gilad No Limitations by gilad

In world where love has no limitations
The truth will be limited only by our imagination
The simple path to being right
Is just within our insight
When there is nothing wrong with you
It’s just ok to have a different point of view



****

This is why I like photography in the winter so much...
A bike is painted on the pavement, symbolizing that this is a lane for riding a bike. The puddle is covering some of it, reflecting the sky above and covering some leafs. The outcome is sureal and yet very urban.

Allow yourself to get lost in this. I hope you like this as much as me.

You work a lot with reflections. It always takes me a while to figure out if it was photo manipped or not.

It's a drawing on the sidewalk, that's the way the design it so it will be visible for people walking from a far. The distortion is so obvies just when looking straight from above

I continue to learn from every piece of yours i see. It is amazing that you found this, and composed it so well. I had a hard time convincing myself that this is not edited in photoshop. Amazing

I love the surreal aspect of this photo. The sky and the ground combine with the bicycle symbol to create a powerful visual statement. The bicycle symbolizes transportation a means of getting us somewhere - within this image it could be a place or a state of mind. Normally this mode of transportation is grounded (pardon the pun) to the earthly ground plane or reality. The presence of the wonderful blue sky with the leaves 'blowing' through it symbolizes heavenly harmony and also the aspirations of "reaching for the sky' or following your dreams. The bicycle does not have to stay grounded to it's bound realm. It can with the right person steering it, reach for the sky and travel in the sky. This whole image speaks of 'reaching for the sky' and following your dreams.

It's like driving straight into something unknown but beautiful and adventurous. I can imagine myself riding a bike which suddenly leaves the ground and I find myself somewhere else. And as funny it might sound here, I like it, the feeling it brings to me. This unlimited feeling, how I could change myself just by thinking that I can change my surroundings with my imagination.
You've done awesome work once again, Gilad. I bet most of the people don't even notice this kind of things, it's such a pity. You truly have the talent, to spot these and to capture them. The blue and the leaves are just.. well, I don't think I need to find a word. I just say they are.

It intrigues me how you can get such perfect reflections from shallow puddles. Everytime I've tried to find those blue-sky-reflections I end with unsuccesful brown skies... does it have to do with time of the day? maybe cleanness of the water?
Anyway, nice piece of your surreal point of view...

At the 1st sight I thought "Hmmmm nice, interesting photomanipulation..."
And in then I realised it is not a photomanipulation.
And then I thought "Can't be! This just can't be a plain photograph!"

incredible... :wow:

Riding past fall and into winter is what i got from this. love this capture. you never let us down.

one thing that i would rather have liked would be a larger width and a smaller height and make the picture more horizontal than a vertical one because the bicycle is really verticle and with the verticle frame it doesn't give room to think. :shrug: despite that, awesome. :)

The sides would have taken away from the attention.
The idea was to use the subject to show the idea. The idea would have been lost with the loss of attention to it.

Thank you for the wonderful comment, as you always give.
