– The Empty Page, 2015 –

Ashley Lily Scarlett and I have started a new blog together. It’s a conversation in pictures and it’s called Between Scarlett and Guest.
I’m not sure why, but this one feels sad to me. Maybe the title has something to do with it. I do like it anyway.
I think it’s the angles – I took a second shot which has a completely different emotional effect. Thanks very much, Ashley.

Thanks very much.
A well dressed man. I agree with Ashley, there’s something sad over it.
Yes, indeed. Thanks very much, Cardinal.
I like the title and the composition
Thanks very much, Sheldon.
Intriguing shot, Richard. Was this intended as a candid shot, or was your plan to approach the man for a street portait?
Thanks, Richard. Yes, this was very much a candid shot.
I also like the angles as well. The 3 focal points (my words), point to the gentleman like arrows, so the composition stays centered and never leaves the subject.
Thanks very much, Barry.
I absolutely enjoy all your work and come to expect my daily dose.
That’s so nice to read – thanks very much, Barry.
More telling than a full featured shot. Terrific.
Thanks very much, Elena!
indeed: quelle tristesse…
Thanks very much, Inge!
Somehow your title fits the image perfectly. I love the melancholy in it.
Beautifully captured, my friend. 🙂
Thanks so much, Marina 🙂
Love this shot. Very Cartier-Bresson.
Yes, spot on. Thanks very much, Geo.
Yes a rather sad stillness in a frantic London street. Lovely.
Thanks very much, Nell.
I can almost feel his footsteps . . . .
That’s so good to read; thanks very much, Patti!
Thanks very much, Gigi! Really glad you like it.
Definitely a sense of lose or sad pondering in the pose and angle of the shot. Very well done.
Thank you very much, Joseph – much appreciated.
I don’t so much get sadness, more a sense of strength I think – from the gentleman and the tree – facing and in contrast to the insane movement of things beyond.. Great shot!
Thanks so much, Cath! Yes, I can see that – I also see stillness and contemplation or remembrance or something…
Lovely candid shot. I find it reminiscent of a panel from a graphic novel, with the angle/composition used to convey loneliness or sadness.
Thanks very much, Stevie. Nice comparison. Much appreciated.

Thanks a lot, Douglas!
You’re welcome Sir Richard!
Ha, ha, thanks very much!
oh yes, a character yet to be written.
Indeed. Thanks very much, Karen.
