Q: Street Photography

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

emotion. sometimes i am lost without it and yet sometimes i can not find it within me. i can not justify why. i am somewhat lost right now. suspended like a bridge to nowhere, i find nothing within me. if i enter the unknown, i feel i will be left there standing alone, broken and falling down the rabbit hole.

i feel like i have lost focus on what made me want to be. somewhere in my mind i stand a victim of my own experiment. i haven’t relinquished my dreams. i just see them moving out of my reach. i know this sounds sad but, at this very moment, my adversary has become me. i have not found emotion as i have wanted i must confess. maybe i am unable to see it. what a waste.

    wow...i feel the emotion of the photo. the sky caught between sun and clouds, the shoes carelessly tossed away, the gloominess of dawn before the light reaches us. the light always comes... in some form or other.

    Wow I don't feel like that when I look into this gorgeous light. the boots thrown over the line to me are a glorious energy, tossed in triumph, high at the pinnacle moment! The electricity lines marching down the street are the banners held high and welcoming. The street lights show the way to the dias. The sun about to shine down on the winners.
    Yes an emotive capture, but no, not a triumph suspended but a dream reached.
    Sorry just my interpretation.

    This capture is magnificent! The mottled sky and shoes hanging in the center of the frame that can't agree on which direction to go punctuate your feelings. I understand how you feel. I've come to know this as being in the eye of passion. Like a hurricane this too, shall pass.

    A very unusual photograph of shoes suspended on the wire...and my first thought when I looked at this image is who put the shoes there and why...They are hanging by a shoelace but regardless they are still hanging on and I see this as a parable...No matter how rough the walk of life can be...We have to hang on to hope...God bless you!

    This does sound very sad! But I like how you put your thoughts to the photo as being out of reach like the shoes. Interesting mood hope in the beautiful sky is where you need to gaze!

    This photo is very moving, the colors are so powerful. The key is to see the shoes for what they represent. Shoes are usually thrown by young boys, this is not something to be sad about, instead see the power of youth when tomorrow is always there and today is all about how much fun you can have. Do not give up on your dreams Chris, instead of seeing this as a powerful sunset, see it as a powerful sunrise! It is the sunrise on your tomorrow.

    No doubt it is nice but melancholy shot! It seems, you are going through hard phase of life... but Chris, everybody goes through it once or even more times in life... I know saying is very easy and living it is very difficult! But the sooner we accept it with open arms, the easier it is to handle with... Because we humans have tremendous capability to keep fighting against all odds of life to come out as a winner!! Only the need is to be READY with Optimistic attitude towards life... then see the outcome!!! :) Good luck buddy...

    dramatic, of course feelings upcomming is this colour combination, gold, black, cold white and a bit of blue, where is red and green, nature and love, almost ineluctable to fall in a hole, my theory
