Photo elicits its own emotional response


To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things.” —  Ansel Adams

It was early on a snowy Sunday morning. I looked out my bedroom window and saw this gentleman sitting beside his metallic shopping cart holding his collection of bottles and cans from the previous day. The bottle recycle depot opened at 10 a.m. He quietly sat in that spot for almost one hour . He might have been praying, thinking or just relaxing. His momentary time out was thought-provoking. With Thanksgiving so close he was probably counting his many successes and blessings. — gc

  2. Fine picture GC. Tells different stories, depending on the perspective you’re looking for, but all of them poignant, I think.




  3. I hope so. It makes me sad to see people less fortunate than myself.


  4. Heck I thought I left a comment on this earlier today, GC.

    I think this is a great pic, with many possible perspectives, but poignant whichever way it is looked at.

    Well done.
