Thanks for your post.
We obviously think alike.
I wasn't thinking not so much of commuting, train travel, or anything as specific as those things when I initially responded to the photographs. I saw them as images of alienation ... the fragility of people, the "aloneness" they experience in big cities.
Thank you for the articles, too. Interesting reading.
On a more instinctual and disturbing level – These photographs make me think of other images – both iconic and violent, relating to man's brutality to man. Too hard to explain
Yes, yes, I can see that, too ...
Though I find it very difficult to explain, too ...
It was just my instinctive reaction to them.
Very hard to put into words.
...so I'll just say thanks for getting me writing again (even if I did delete most of it
If I actually did that for you, Endy, I'm very honoured.
(No pressure, but ...) I'd love to see some fresh writings from you.
When the time is right for you, of course!
