Well this is very powerful. Alienation. Alone. Silence (to me this is a very "silent" mood) The diagonals somehow make it seem that there is a world passing by, just beyond our vision. Excellent. Powerful.

Wonderful and moody

WOW. Dito with what everyone said. Voted!
Guest 25-Jul-2006 01:21
Another nice one. Another solitary person trying to find some space and meaning to his world..
Kathy Pedersen25-Jul-2006 00:31
It has all been said, Ai Li, this is wonderful.
Guest 24-Jul-2006 23:21
Nice image :O)
Guest 24-Jul-2006 22:47
What can I add? Agree with steugan and Kal..
Guest 24-Jul-2006 20:27
Another wonderful shot - the other comment have said it all already, but I love the noisy grainy effect as well. Great sense of isolation amidst the big city.
Guenter Eh24-Jul-2006 16:38
These comments of Kal!!! Leads me to a higher level to see what is really important. Thanks Kal! Like the extreme abstraction too! Strong picture - depressing mood inside!
Kal Khogali24-Jul-2006 16:13
Abstraction is just so powerful here. Stuegan touches on the point. Without a face, this becomes anyone, and if it's anyone, it's everyone...a symbolic image, no longer polluted with personality...phenomenal..K

I've just noticed that aside from your photo "single no. 1 ~ lean on me", with many of the recent photos (and also some near the beginning of the gallery) you don't see the faces of the people - or perhaps just a slight glimpse of part of a face. I think this adds to the sense of isolation the viewer gets as much as the wonderful frames you have captured around the individuals.

Lonelyness and lonelyness again. A terrific view on our modern city living. Agree with Natisumber: love how the lines on the ground draw his space. Roberto

I'm a big fan of the "overhead" shot as you may know. Composition is excellent in this one, adn the high noise adds to the "gritty" feeling. I like all the different lines as well - they add an interesting, graphic element.
Guest 24-Jul-2006 15:26
The composition traps this lonely "businessman" between the bottom left corner and the patterns on the ground. The darkness of the scene gives a feel on lack of hope. Very well done. Voted.

These lone figures would make a wonderful collection of their own. Very strong sense of alone here.
Guest 24-Jul-2006 13:56
Love how the geometry of the ground draws his space. There is here a strrong feeling of lonelyness reinforced by the light and the (omniscient) point of view. Hope he'll not close on the same feeling!;)
