Thanks for the comment. To me, the RH side shows the dereliction and the environment she is in. Even the rolled up bit of paper is important

The RH side is crucial, it provides context and prevents the shot from being intrusive in feel. Superb composition, and a sober, respectful, dignified b&w conversion.
