The Soul in Isolation...

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/200 second F/5.6 ISO 400 75 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Nigel from Avening, United Kingdom

The isolation emphasised by that huge wall, and as always the sign, that tells us not to do something. Does the sign apply to people I wonder ! Lovely shot.

En Français, il y a une expression qui dit "être au pied du mur", c'est parfaitement imagé sur ta photo.

Pixim from Nice, France

I like this minimalist composition, but with the main subject in all these thoughts. The first idea which occurs me is that the life maybe a real headache ;-)

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

This fellow certainly seems to be in isolation! That huge expanse of dark brick wall really makes him seem so small and alone. Great work, Mariana!

For me this is a perfection, the big brick wall, the sign, and the man, a few elements for a great photography.
