Moody Monday: Solitary -

"Solitary Man"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
Something short and sweet today, suggested by the Moody Monday theme of the week, solitary. I suppose it should be noted that I was thinking about the old Neil Diamond hit and how love gone wrong can cause some of us to cut off our nose to spite our face.

Man without face, man without past (and this time don't tell me that he is she: i won't believe!). ;) It could be very solitary life.

No face, no past, but a really crummy tie! A bad cravat may equal a solitary life indeed! :)

No, I don't actually know this man. I cropped this from one of my street photographs - a rather bad, fuzzy image now that you ask, accounting for some of the vagueness of the "no face", as Elegia said. Anyway, the idea of pulling a single person from a crowded street scene to address the theme of solitary is one of my little private, visual jokes! :D

It's in a crowd that you can feel really alone. I miss a person next to him. Someone to talk with. But he's maybe just looking if he can cross the street without danger.

The invisible man with no face. Creepy.

That's so true, being alone in a crowd. He was indeed waiting to cross the street.

LOL @ creepy ... we're going to get Elegia all worked up again with words like that! :D
