PEOPLE 235 – GOING TO WORK 4
November 13, 2016 8 Comments
A chill, late autumn morning. The rising sun blasts across Bristol Bridge and rush hour crowds march out to meet it. Their warm breath rises in the cold air as tall, dimly seen office blocks loom up ahead on the far side of the river.
What is this picture about? Many if not most of my pictures are not “about” anything; as this blog’s “ABOUT” page says, many of my pictures do not have narratives, do not contain stories of any depth. With this picture I’m not totally sure, but maybe there’s something here about the dehumanising effects of cities and modern life.
And am I on the outside looking in on such things? Well, being retired, I am now, but I also spent decades on the inside looking out.
