Farewell II

Madrid, Spain view map

This is another scan from a colour slide converted to B&W. I like the long lines and mist. The man and child seem to wander along without a specific goal, something I also like to do when waiting for trains. But I imagine of course something more dramtic: mama has just left for two years or the child's best friend has moved to another city. It is clear that they won't be seeing each other for a long long time and daddy and his son will have to carry on without that beloved person.

Erg knap. Die kille, mistige achtergrond maakt het beeld mysterieus. V.
