  1. First of all, I like this photo a lot. It's rather stark but that's the point, I think.

    As to the bag, I was going to say it holds his lunch, but he'd have to be a big eater. So, maybe tools? Nah, somebody would steal them. Clothes for going dancing after work? Or maybe just trash? :-)

  4. Some legends
    in a race,
    minds spiked with
    desperate ambition
    to get
    a
    bigger,
    higher,
    taller,
    richer
    abode,
    to look down
    in blind victory
    on others
    scrounging below.

    And the homeless,
    construction laborer,
    with a roof
    in the village back home,
    slogs in the city,
    carrying his
    fears,
    ambitions,
    hunger,
    and worries,
    stuffed in a bag ,
    hung open to the elements
    on the 25th floor
    where he works,
    hoping
    Someone Up There
    in the sky
    looks out for him....

  9. What a great competition you could make - "guess what's in the bag" ;)

    I like all the poles, and the fact that one of them is bent over, daring to be different!
