    Taken in Paris, November 15, 2009” I do hope I am not being stupid but is this photo taken by your son or is it your son in the photo. I hope you will not mind me asking. The photo is amazing and the young man at the centre is lovely looking I just wish I was able to comment on the post properly. My fault completely.

    • Willowdot21, the young man in the photo is not, I am afraid, Kevin. He took the photo. Kevin always thought metaphorically, so the young man and his wonderful gesture would have been a symbol to him as would the rest of the elements of the composition. Thank you so much for your comment.

      • Thank you for the explanation, I see what your son is doing it is an amazing photo. I love photo they are like people and memories as long as you love them and care for them they live on!

  5. How marvelous that he captured the beautiful absurdity of the ephemeral present (us) juxtaposed with the seemingly eternal, if battered and broken, ancient past.

    The photo got me to do a bit of research–that’s one of the great things about this writing community, that we call all learn something new now and then! Thanks ever so much–kudos to your son, always.
