I sat with this guy for a while on the pavement. It was funny how different everything appeared from down there. When you are walking down the street, you are going roughly the same speed as everyone else, and the scenery changes, you are in control, directing. When you are sitting on a street, everyone around you is in motion, like an elaborate dance, and you are static, removed, largely ignored. Mothers with babies in pushchairs, elderly people, young people, bikes, cars, everything moved on past at different speeds, a rushing, swirling pool of life. This boy wasn't part of it. He sat there contemplating, telling me his thoughts. I asked if I could take his picture and he said yes. He posed to show me how he was feeling.
Thanks for your visits and comments!
