(I took this picture after a wonderful challenge from Llorenç Rosanes. He emailed me and said he thought I could take a picture titled "alone in the crowd". I looked for the shot for weeks, and finally got this one.)

He seemed to be unconsciously aware of my camera, and planted himself like this, frozen, as if posing for a portrait.
I obliged.

Union Square, NYC

    Fantastic image! It captures the theme of loneliness in a complete and paradoxical way.

    I love how the two groups on either side are turned into each other, shutting out the lone guy. Love his sunken posture and seeming lostness. Why did he stop? Brain fart?

    If I could vote again for this photo I would make it pleased, up to the infinite. It's perfect for the theme. It's perfect for any theme. It's a masterpiece.
