An old man meditates on the loading dock of this closed bicycle shop, while a child balances on a slab-like step. They seem at first to exist in separate worlds. I composed the image as two people on a symbolic scale – they appear to balance each other perfectly. Even though the man must weigh more, and indeed has seen more, than the child, the little boy seems to hold his own through his curiosity. He seems ready to leave his place on the scale, push that door open, and explore a new world within.
