    Jen, this is quite an emotional picture. And as Ilook at it, there appears to be a house across the street? That house almost resembles a sad face, looking back at your daughter.

  • Hey Nancy… thanks… I thought so too. I hadn’t realized that the house does, indeed, look like a sad face… which all fits together… because she was very sad when she was looking out. Our dog had hurt his paw and was bleeding and she was so worried about him that she wouldn’t leave the window.

    i see why.. the dog… good demonstration of low apeture.. and side placement of your subject. Shadowing.. contrasting… the mood is strengthened by the face shaped house. The title also makes one wonder. Without the story… could be children waiting to go out and play… perhaps a love in the house next door. But the image is not clear.. which again refers to future is unclear. So many ways to percieve. Good one to share.. as emotion and scenario are dependent on the viewer.
