    Oh that’s an awful sight – its a great picture but a very sad sight, truly heart-rending.

  • Aye, not a state you want to be in. I was drawn to her because I have felt like she appeared – completely hopeless and looking as if she wanted to fold up on herself and shut the world out. I suffered from serious depression not so many years ago, and it still comes back to haunt me now and then. I may not have known her exact situation, but her body language said it all to me.

    I prefer the colour version – it captures the grime and sadness better.
    I’d actually prefer no pic at all – this is so wretched and sad.

  • I know Vikram. If you read my response to Steve, you may partly understand why I took the picture in the first place. I just wish I could have helped her, but in all honesty wouldn’t have known where to begin!

    I suppose if you’ve been ‘there’, it will really strike a big chord. I hope you’re free of these feelings from now onwards Ursula, this image does convey the total absence of all hope.

  • Oh I am Steve, for the most part. I can say that I’m lucky enough to have been able to find a way to deal with it and do something about it. Not everyone is so fortunate, however. I just hope the woman in this picture has had better days since this one.

    Both versions are excellent Ursula! The woman stands out a little more in the black and white, but as Vikram mentioned, we can “feel” the atmosphere more vividly in the colour version. :-)

  • Thanks very much Jo! I had wanted to play with the original colour version, simply because of what you and Vikram have said. I felt moved by being there and seeing her, and want to convey the same feeling through the picture.

    An excellent shot! I think I like the color version better too, I immediately felt sympathy for her protective position. Her arms folded around herself, her legs crossed, her head bowed and to the side. like she knows that no one will look her in the eyes or maybe because she doesn’t want anyone to see the pain in her downcast eyes.

  • Thankyou so much Ann, and so true about her body language. As soon as I saw her I wanted to hug her! It was especially painful watching people walking past her without even noticing that she was there.

    Such a sad and poignant image…it speakes volumes

  • Indeed it does Rick. I don’t like to see anyone like this. They should not be ignored.
