Chris,

your photo has an aura of mystery for me, because I find many things in it that are beautiful and significant, and I know that you can not possibly have predicted all of them... the photo is a mixture of your deliberate art and that element of surprise that photography always brings with it...

The photo has several very suggestive visual rhymes: three pairs of people. One knows each other and is interacting (the couple on the right), the other seems to not know each other but they are also interacting (the main subject in the center), and the pair in the background who don't know each other and are ignoring each other - the usual street passer-by situation.

All this palette of "WE-ness" certainly deserves the word "we" printed there in front of us...

Then the three hands. The one holding the woman on the right, the interaction-gesture of the bearded man, and - surprise? - the one printed there in front of us. Hand is action, and the actions here are all human interaction...

A light shines likes a halo of sanctity above the head of the reaching-out, smiling man. He looks a bit crazy...

But nobody's crazy as long as there's some "we" left in him...

What an excellent note, thank you a million times. You've pointed out many things that I hadn't even noticed, for that i'm grateful.

Thank you again,
Chris
