All alone

Sometimes, most of the time for me, it is the little things that you take notice. Sometime this is good sometimes it is bad. It is bad when you focus on the small details and miss the whole big picture. It is good when you spot out interesting little things. Like this little fella here. Left all alone in the middle of Helsinki everybody just passing by.

I did pass him by too but I just had to stop and take out my camera. You see, it reminded me of the people that are all alone out there even though they are surrounded by all those people. Some of them might be those less fortunate homeless people but surprisingly many are successful people on the fast lane of life. Or at least just ordinary everyday people like you and me.

After this I have started to greet people while I am taking a walk. Not on the citystreet that would, regretfully, be quite insade job with all those people passing by all the time. But in the park near here. And what did I find out? Elderly people were mostly pleased to be greeted as were young mothers but the younger people? Oh did I get angry, under the brows looks from them. And they did seem to be the majority.

Oh what is it with the people these days? Posted by Picasa
