The aim of this photo was to try to generate a story within a single frame. The subject (sign) was kept in sharp focus to identify that there is a loss, the lady was thrown out of focus to signify a long search, mirrored by the long road to the distance.

16:9 aspect ratio was chosen to mimic a film. No border because I don't like them at the moment.

I like the concept of this. Anecdotally, last night while I was half way between awake and sleep, I was thinking about geese laying golden eggs in the forest where no one could find them, and wondering where that reference came from. It came from here of course :)

I dialed that number and all I got was a Nigerian Western Union office! Nice depth of field and leading lines.

Looks pretty rural for a London telephone number lol
Like the ideas very funny and very unlucky to loose that goose.
