My local town, well know

for its diversity and

compassion .


Totnes ,UK ; a day spent rambling in my local town

  1. Such a striking photo, and it’s hard to believe it wasn’t staged, with all that’s going on in such a small space, and the distance between the people appearing so precisely measured. But maybe that’s part of the drama – there seems to be a tension between this being a standard street shot or a staged shot. So I’m left wondering not only about the individuals and their lives, but about what the photographer was up to. Memorable, Paula!

      • Oh, sorry if I’m unclear Paula, just that everyone is so perfectly positioned, especially the men, who look posed, that I wondered if it was staged. There are photographers who do that, purposefully staging their photographs, so I wondered if that could be the case here, which kept me very curious, not only about the individuals and the setting but about the photographer’s intent. And of course, being curious is a very good thing!

  2. I wonder when “tolerance” as a word, falls out of fashion. To me, if I tolerate you, I am barely “looking your way”. When words to describe acceptance become invisible, I’ll be happy. Colorblind, gender disinterested… love conquers all.

    • Dear Barry, you are right, fretted about the better word to use and have now changed it to ‘compassion’. Hope that is more acceptable and more what is the meaning of this post.


  3. one of those photos that compells me to just linger…the individual stories, whose path at one moment cross and are captured, simulataneously unique but in same way the same. And the framing of lines, the slope, makes it all the more intriquing heigthening the subjects connection and separation.

Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
