....and Bloke To My Left - # 252

.............'roony feels moved to make a personal comment. I'm only Bluey's button-pusher, publishing his postings while he is away: but I have just felt it necessary to sit for several minutes to contemplate this fine photo . Please give it more than only a few seconds of your time. I find it quite moving.

(Bluey has escaped Dubai for a few days, all posts as usual courtesy of the wonderful Chuckeroon at Richmond-Upon-Thames please go check his daily photoblog out!)

It is, as you say, a compelling photo. I think it is the color and then the expression as if he just escaped from something or is about to endure the fires of hell for something.

Some people might not know that rape is not just something unique to the human animal. There are ducks just as guilty—my post today.

Simply excellent composition. There is strong emotion but it is up to the viewer to interpret it. It could be fear, despair or loneliness.

He's looking shocked, as he has realised how much Dubai has changed over the last couple of years.
