  3. Humpf. But you can't object to my opinion that you are best with the lonely sad street pics, can't you? ;-) ... okay, that's my opinion ... Humpf.

    ;-) perhaps it is only because I do like your sad Swiss people photos so much ..

  4. Thanks for the compliment Martina.... you are making me smile today. I wish I could say more about the Swiss but I am sure you can see that I have now decided to use my "real" name and therefore anything I say or do may be held against me....:::)))

  5. Anyone who's traveled can relate to this most excellent photo. I've certainly been there: saddled down with this burden of luggage and other detrius, waiting for a bus, a plane or a someone to pick me up (who is, of course, running late)!

    I don't think it's a sad photo. Maybe a bit melancholy, but that's life!

  6. Jacob, I think for me it is sad because of all the "Sonderverkauf" posters in the background: might translate as "special sales" ... you see them in too many shops nowadays. And in combination with all the luggage ... .
    Sean, yes I was wondering about the name ...

  8. Changed it on my profile...:) I originally wanted more "distance" from my blogs but now I feel that I am getting more "attached" and therefore this seems to be less of an issue for me... mere spelling change!

  11. or worn out after a tiring trip?

  12. Probably all of the above.... perhaps she has been left there? The one who was supposed to come, never did?

  13. You may be right. I remember flying home from Dubai 4 o'clock in the morning and my husband was not there at the airport - I had to wake him up because he is stoped the alarm and fell asleep again - so stuff happens - I probably looked like her :) - it may be something more happy - then she being left :)

  14. Thanks Eamon... mutual!

    Ellie: Maybe she was maliciously stood up..... perhaps she was supposed to meet her boyfriend and her best friend for a backpacking trip in Zurich.... she was delayed for some reason and therefore on a different flight.... they came over together and have spent two days in Zurich together... it has now transpired that they have developed feelings for one another... they have decided not to meet up with her, and "sold her out".... reality is, anything is possible here... what should be noted is that she was not sitting anywhere which could be interpreted as a meeting point, but in the middle of the shopping area in the train station.... the possibilities are endless ::))

  15. I agree - the possibilities are endless - I was just trying to think positive and find a happy posibility for her :)

  16. I can't really say if the person is sad, just tired or lost in her thoughts.
    As for the "special sales" on the shop, I can see that around here quite a lot ... maybe it's time for a change about the way we live.
    Good photo.

  17. great shot - the multiple possibilities are in the mind of the viewer.

  18. I agree with Martina...I do like your "Very individualistic" people photos...!

  19. Great atmosphere in this image! It's a kind of beautifully enigmatic photos I like very much.

  20. Interesting ... I looked at this image and was flabergasted that it received 20 comments whereas the previous image of the couple on the beach only 6.

    This image of the girl does nothing for me whereas the beach image is wonderful.

    Different drums I guess ...

  21. Julie.... I like both but I really was happy with the image of the beach and was also surprised that no one agreed with me... it was a simple picture but I enjoyed the poses of the people, the starkness and... thanks for the comment. At least someone agreed with me!

  22. Sean, Julie: while I could make up many different stories with this photo, the beach photo "does nothing for me" to quote Julie. We all I assume look at the photos of our fellow bloggers with the bunch of all our life experiences in our minds - we are not art critics, ;-)
