day 345: getting away from the world
I really like this picture, because everyone just seems to be far far away in their own world. The bottle collector doesn’t care what everyone else thinks, the girl reading, the man sunk in on himself, the closed eyes of the man behind him, the thoughtful pose of the man in the background. It was such a strange scene, I just had to take a picture.
On the other hand, am I that different? Am I not also hiding behind my camera and not really engaging? Maybe, I engage more with the scene than the people in it, but still, I am just the silent gaze upon them, scrutinising their behaviour, their lives, their outlook.
Maybe it’s voyeuristic, but it’s also more than that. It’s taking notice where other people don’t.
