A tough theme this month, but some interesting interpretations nevertheless.
Fewer entries this month than usual, so I've voted for 2 rather than my usual 3.
Hully - a beautiful shot, and one that make me think back to the days when I used to pay footy for hours on end. And as Hully suggests, it doesn't seem to happen so much anymore. I really liked clyde's portrait too, but this one edged it for me as I could relate to it more.
janiep - Really liked this one, plenty of different ways to interpret it. For me, and without wanting to sound too wanky (
), I read it as a juxtaposition between a glorious, romantic moment is a bygone age of football, and today's corporate and sanitised game. Good job. And if you really wanted to overanalyse it, the confused expression of the chap in the centre seems to say "how did we get here?" - if you really want to overanalyse it...
There were some other great shots, but they were the two that most appealed. fwiw I loved the look of MaDMaCKeM's so much that I went off and ordered a welding filter after seeing it.
