photo young couple and old widow at marine drive in mumbai by kunal bhatia

the juxtaposition of meanings - of time and space - in this photograph is quite interesting. there's the young couple facing the sea, in a world of their own, dwelling in love. and then there's the widowed-lady, perhaps yearning for a love gone by. alone, she sits facing the city and watches the passer-bys.

shot at marine drive. another photo from the same evening here: love and the city.

I love your insightful thinking. I am more in love with the way you perceive things than just the pictures.
