From the Second Story

Who are these people? Where are they going?

What decisions or questions make them hesitate and turn? Take a look sideways or glance back over their shoulder?

Isolated or in pairs, at times accompanied by a furtive shadow, they exist in the boundary between photographic image and glazed backdrop.

How much depends on their next footstep? What are they carrying in their bags and purses? Why do they reflexively touch their wallet or wristwatch?

As we peer down from a god's-eye-view, unable to offer guidance, they act out their mysterious mini-dramas.
