closed, gum, morals


Posted by Picasa









Two windows in a Spanish street behind which memories must lurk.
On the pavement, what I take for a broken fragment of seashell turns out to be a flattened piece of chewing gum bearing the ridged imprint of the sole of a shoe.

A snatched piece of conversation as a couple pass me in the street. "If she wants to do it for social reasons, she's doing for the wrong reasons", says the man. There is a disturbing didactic note in his voice which makes me sympathise with her, whoever she might be.

Oh, I do like these windows, so full of history and the passage of time.

These window pictures certainly suggest a story or a secret of some kind. Very atmospheric photos.
