Alone in the crowd...

By ANNIEKERR
Alone in the crowd... this wee man in a Manhattan park would have broken your heart, the park was full of people chatting and laughing in the sun and he sat on his little chair with his unopened newspaper just silently contemplating life. I wanted to go over and hug him he looked so lonely in the crowd...

A very moving image and description. When my daughter was younger she used to empathise greatly with the old and alone (as do I), I used to tell her they probably had a really awful, nagging partner at home and were grateful for the peace and quiet of being out and alone. Most likely not true, but it helped! Smile

Annie,
This is an AMAZING shot. Everything about it is superb -- your composition, use of DOF, your mono processing, etc.
Your compassionate commentary is fully repeated in your shot -- the man's isolation in a crowd, several generations represented -- from the little kids playing to the young couple embracing to the man on the right -- engrossed in his device.
I really wish I hadn't already given a user award today. This image tops anything I've seen for a while.
Nice work.
