This is an excellent photo, its wonderful interplay of light, shadow and perspective creates a dark, introspective mood that, sadly, I can relate to all too well. It provided great inspiration for my entry in this week's fotoFRIDAY event.

The title makes this photo
iamkatia's avatar
well, i hope the photo can stand alone as well. ;)

the title completes it - seriously...they are a 50/50
the photo is great...but without the title lacks the depth and meaning

I'll have to study this one =D it's like a summa of what I like... light-shadow, contrast, silhouette -and the composition. I'm impressed...

he's feeling pretty depressed and down, like he lost something and that shadow of his is fading away slowly slowly onto his back side.
