Quest for a better chance 2


The unknown immigrant.

She looks as if barricated, almost imprisoned, subdued and desperate, in a state of passive inertia and with a glance hardly significant of optimism or determination.
Is she contemplating an already gone and waisted long past or a short bit of a future left to be lived in the same miserable condition?....

    with nothingness behind her and her arms resting on the rail, she's literally become one with the fence. absurdly enough, my first thought was that she reminded me of a rancher casually observing his cattle… greetings, sabine.

    alone and looking into a far away distance one can imagine her thinking and hoping for a better life elsewhere ... another image that gives food for thought - excellent !!!
    best regards, Adele

    The past is over ... the future will not start ... between the tims...
    The observer's position of others lives, and then - falling to nowhere.
    Interesting image, Alexander! Philosophical...
