thank you Anne, You provided me with some great insights on the interpretation of photograph. The horizontal lines are wires of a fence which I sought to divide both the image and the mother separated from the children evocative of COVID and society as it separates individuals. I do see your interpretation is fascinating and always intrigues me how others see an image that I've created. Many thanks.

Hi Alan, this really is an interesting image. There is a compaction to this which gives the perspective of a high rise building, yet we are looking at an ocean with two sets of people in it. The image has been included within a cityscape profile, yet the only evidence of such is the division across aspects of it, which to me relates to high rise buildings. There is much within it and I am unclear as to your intentions, but it brings to mind for me, the situations of buildings which sit along the coast and are often subjected to the eating away of the land beneath them. This can have huge consequences for the people who live inside. Here we see three people, just shapes in the sand one person, perhaps a woman who appear larger than the other two, who appear smaller, who could be children. But they really are only shadows within the frame, telling a story by themselves. In fact, this could easily be a reflection upon a building of some kind. Or perhaps through a window and more. It could also be two images put together. Regardless of this, there is a lot to see and think about. Anne O'Connor (PS I have been asked to have a look and comment on this - would really be interested in your perspectives associated with this work).
