I'm guessing that a fourth of the images will have a lone chair in a lonely room. Black and white.

So be it.

I couldn't think of anything else. I'm way too literal, I think. I did make the chair just a little bit right of the third to try to make it just a bit more lonely.

Although, I love that seam in the wallpaper (that I've never noticed in real life) on the other thirds line. There is no symbolism in that, I just like it.

Or... maybe there is symbolism in that. And I'm just too literal to know.

So be that, too. :D

I'm entered and finished. (Only the second entry in! Woot!)

I like the visual starkness of this, Wyeth would be proud.

i really like this .. the title leaves it up to the viewer as to what the symbolism actually is .. could be different for everyone ..
my first feeling was that it suggests loneliness separation and poverty ..
then it struck me .. there's no-one there .. so from loneliness and separation .. it has morphed into almost the opposite .. the person has gone to join the human race ..
then it morphed again .. the person isnt there ... he's dead ..
