Two stories. Or two chapters. The end before the beginning. Reminds me of Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_985605.jpg which I admire.

Fascinating. The man looks so solemn and the woman with her head down. It leaves you wanting to know more from the scene.

I'm sure ubique has something to say about this one, my words are not good enough, but I do ep really like this one. Bump.

Ah the intergenerational divide, or is that a connection. A beautiful moment.

Well-done black and white that animates this straightforward setting with young and old, untold connections and quiet moods. The central column anchors the image as it may divide the people. What's unsaid fills the air.

This is so amazing! There's a connectedness to them... yet... they are in 2 comPLETELY separate worlds at this moment. Draws you in and makes you want to know more about what's going on. Very Ubique-esque :)

What the??? Fingers in the right place now. Looks like the father of the bride and her being a bride. A special moment caught behind scenes. Kinda melancholy kinda feelings.

Isn't it funny that we often like to be close to one another, but still apart.

worlds apart. generations apart.

Waiting for the finally; father, daughter going to the wedding with looks of apprehension and weariness. This is where my imagination goes with this photo; a story being told by different viewers. Lovely. Bumping up.

Striking image - almost a double portrait - people across dimensions and ages. Well composed. 8

a great encounter of the unaware (of a businessman at rest and a bride doing her last minute shopping)

This one reminds me of 21.gif LevT...perhaps a scene from an Amy Tan novel. No one wants to be the Kitchen God's wife.

I kind of nearly almost enjoy this, but not as much as i want too.

I love this photograph because it's unresolved; there are many possible interpretations of it, and the answer can come only from each viewer, rather than something imposed by the photographer. For me it's like the first paragraph or two of a good suspense novel ... where you are taken immediately on to unfamiliar ground; where your preconceptions and prejudices as a reader (or in this case viewer) are challenged. Where the bounds of your personal comfort zone are immediately tested. You feel the sand shifting a little under your feet, and scramble for a grip on what's happening, what's already happened, what's about to happen.

There's no good reason why a photograph should not make the viewer feel slightly uncomfortable, and the most ambitious and lastingly interesting photographs do so.

I like this because it's not like a million other photographs. Why get yourself a camera and then make only pictures that are familiar, comfortable, and terminally boring? Pictures that can be absorbed and understood in a second or two? Pictures of which the only thing a viewer can think to say is "Nice", or "Soooo beautiful". Why not instead do as you have here and make something of substance? Something original, and durable?

On the technical side, your photographic craft is excellent; good exposure, nice tones, blah, blah, blah. But you can buy a camera and lens that does all that stuff quite automatically and consistently. You can't buy a camera that has an auto-interest setting, nor a significance-bracketing dial. That part is all you, and can't be bought at all.

Superb photograph, incisively seen and well executed. A yellow thumb is yours. Slip it under the short leg of a wonky table and you'll thank me one day. As I thank you now for this terrific photograph.

I can't tell if this is candid or posed and it really doesn't matter. Beautiful balance in your composition.

A curious tale that may never be properly told. Connected strangers uncaring of each other's life.

I'm impressed by you, the photographer, effectively adjunct - attached to the scene but not part of it. You are the invisible man.

the power of this photo comes from direction. the orientations of the two people are directly opposed and face outward... but not a struggle, they are both resigned

A beautiful dichotom.
