A matter of chatter on back steps?


“A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth. ” ― Richard Avedon

Some photos are open to personal interpretation. This is one such photo. I glanced out my bedroom window recently and noticed these three individuals chatting in a friendly and animated manner. Were they family members, close friends , itinerants merely resting , or co workers resting on the back steps of the nearby bottle return site? I did not have the opportunity to chat with any of them. There is a visual clue in the photo that may help you decide for yourself.
