Last exit to Brooklyn -

"Nowhere Man"
digital collage by Mick Mather
"... a simple looking man he was,
aimless, excepting a beeline for an exit
to the anonymous, ordinary street went he,
without a glance in any direction,
and disappeared ..."

A lot of things were going through my mind while creating this piece ... not the least of which were your subway photographs.

Or melancholy man, maybe. Anyway, I like the sad mood in this pic.

When the dreams of broken hearts return, yes, a little sad. :|

This is great, I like the gesso look and the mystery. I like the way he leans to get a better view of what ever is out the window...

What an extraordinary ordinary man! Do you know where he's hurrying?

I meant this to have some mystery and I'm pleased that you got that from this piece. As for the leaning? I'm certain he feels like there's something ominous out there. :)

hpy:
Yes ... he's going nowhere! :)

Nevada, for one. But, for him, everything on the other side of those doors.

Very ascetic, but in a good way. Less is more in this case! The man without face, the man without past...

A minimal piece in many respects. Thank you, Elegia. :)
