i am always we. but yes, in weather like this, shade is always best: )
Is it a crime to take a photo of a resting man? It blends him with notions of the occult and the fourth dimension. Is he sleeping? Or is he an anonymous anti hero along the streets? Your haze of photography has masked reality. Still, my intuitive insights has rejected the appearance of optical reality; to investigate a world of symbols and clues to hidden meaning. The interaction between the observer and the observed in this picture is in a category between the real and the false that was neither actual nor deceptive.
Good photo, but work on its meaning.

hey alfred: the realm between the real and the false in fact locates itself in terms of the distance we establish upon objectifying the subject, an inevitable (and oh, so regrettable) process that speaks more of brutal honesty than futile sincerity.
