1851 – A Better Future III

Here’s one last image, this one finally made today.

I can’t really tell why I took this particular image. There is something in the arrangement of the brooms, the bicycle, the stairs leading up to the small church, and then that tag “Future”, that immediately caught my eye. I made two images, one wider than this, but this is it, this is the core of what attracted me. Don’t ask me why 🙂

We had “A Better Future” from David Bowie’s 2002 album “Heathen” two times so far, in the pretty cool “1223 – A Better Future” and the not so cool “1753 – Towards A Better Future“. Here it is again, but why not, it’s a great song. Hear for yourself on YouTube.

  1. What caught my eye, was the color harmony: yellow leaves on the ground, yellow bristles of the brooms, yellow leaves on the branches. And the white stones around the tree trunk, and the whiteness of the wall up in the photograph. This works!

  2. It also tells a story too. There’s a sense of a desire for neatness and order, the autumnal tree in it’s tub, the fallen leaves and the brushes. It tells me what I need to be doing this weekend!

  3. I agree with Juha and Colin. However, for the story, with that graffiti “Future” could this be a comment on where mankind is heading? Towards a future of drudgery – exemplified by the brooms – OR that we really need to clean up the messes that we’ve made worldwide?
