"I’ve run across cities
In which you’ve permission to cower
Relinquish your hold
On the vestiges of power
I’ll dig, but I will not find you"
The Land || Nothing Is Happening Everywhere
(lyrics/vocals David Sylvian)

What a wonderful visual statement . . 'Nothing' would make a wonderful theme and you would surely win a silent first prize with this. You have inspired me to go out today looking for 'Nothing'.

The man still seems to watch the world go by in all directions ...

Everything is left to the imagination of the viewer here. Lover your ‘neutral observer’ point of view!

Lost and lingering in the city that never sleeps... everyone else busy and engaged! Thought provocative street shot!

In the midst of city life there's always loneliness. Beautifully illustrated.

k@ from Paris, France

Inside him, that is where things should happen. A great feel of emptiness, self-emptiness in a moment of absence to the world, strongly illustrated with his back so present.

Your interpretation of this scene is insightful. The Mundane Circus is going on all around us and, unfortunately, we have no choice about joining it, but we consider uniformity to be a comfortable friend. A thoroughly thought-provoking shot!

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

If you aren't going to the symphony, this looks to be a lonesome place. A moody image.
