    A very clever political shot, Stephen. And a creative interpretation of contrast. I love it.

  5. Very good and sensitive of you, Stephen. Thank you.

  6. Very thoughtful post, Stephen. Yes, the Go West is really ironic. What disparity there is in the land of the free (and the rich)!

    Brilliant shot … and great choice. And that is the contrast we have all over the world … a true depth to this photo, because that was what you thought when you took the photo, the contrast and the irony. Richer are getting richer and poorer get poorer.
