A child peers curiously through the glass of a public piece of art - Den Haag, Netherlands, 2008
This was a very lucky shot, in that all the elements just happened to line up nicely for me at the right time; the child looking up towards me in the foreground, my position mid-distance, and the disappearing figure where the top portion of my body should be. To me it represents the passage of time, aging, with youth and wonder in the foreground, reflection (me) at middle distance, and getting older/moving on in life with the figure in the background. Of course this is just my interpretation
Probably also worth pointing out that there has been no digital manipulation to this photograph (apart from the obvious conversion to b&w and vignette)... all the elements as you see them were how they appeared at the time. The reflections and missing portions are all caused by the glass and mirrors of the art piece.
