Every once in a while we come across an image that makes us stop, take a second look, and think about our inner selves, how we are a part of the world, even if just for a second. This is sadly not one of those images... However this image does make us stop to wonder why, and that is often just as powerful a message. We wonder why there are so many cars on the road, we wonder how sparklite managed to hover 20 feet above traffic to take this picture, since clearly he's standing above the middle of the road. We wonder why canadian tire put a sign right there, where it would ruin an otherwise perfect shot. We also wonder who the new resident is going to be on the 27th floor of that new condo they are building. If we are not rushed and have a moment to look further into the picture, we wonder other things too.. Who's the blond woman on the sidewalk?, why are there only two taxi cabs on the street? why does everyone have a brown, biege, blue or red car, except for that one white one parked at the side of the road? These and many more pressing questions burst forth from our unconcious from simply stopping to take a brief look at this captivating scene. Perhaps wondering why is a more powerful message than thinking inwards... It opens more doors to discovery of the world arround us.

Iain Myrans: Well Visual Vault I'm very excited to have your insightful comments return to the blog. For those of you who were not around in July and August, Visual Vault provided analysis of a number of my images and identified my subliminal Sparklite Rule of Three (not to be confused with the rule of thirds). I was very excited to see this post this evening...

Now, in response to the above comment directly, I too asked many of those questions -- including how it was I'd developed the magical power to hover. I figure the magical hovering ability will proove useful in future photographic endeavors so I have decided not to question the power any further. As for Canadian Tire... how dare they. ; )

Thanks for the comment VV smile P.S. to all, I recommend visiting VV's photoblog, click on his name to go there!

Um, I don't know which of the signs is for the tyre company but I don't think any of the signs matter. This is 'for real' and what people put themselves through every day of their working lives. Daft, isn't it? There's a great atmosphere here, dark and a bit like Gotham City because of the dark clouds.

Why's everybody driving on the wrong side of the road?
Iain Myrans: lol. we backwards North Americans wink Thanks for the comment Ellie
