“No Story Here” Photograph

As far as I am aware the only connection between this woman and the two behind her are that they are in this photograph together. Composition and cropping of an image can easily give the impression of relationships or associations that do not actually exist. I doubt they are gossiping about her and as she is wearing ear-plugs I’m sure she isn’t eavesdropping.

It’s a bit of a recurring theme in this blog that I find nothing wrong in such implied stories as long as people bear in mind that it is not (necessarily) reflected in the reality of the lives of the people shown.

Photograph taken at Victory Monument, Bangkok, Thailand
