A really nice picture. I have so many questions!
Does the wheelchair belong to this person? Why is she stretching? What does the signboard read?

Wow! stark, elemental, no need for notes with this one. May I suggest there's even a hint of irony here (sorry but...)Fine work.

Hi Jennifer, I really getting to like your work, it seems to get more inventive and interesting with each post. This one is just amazing. reminds me of a hit UK comedy show of recent months called 'Little Britain', try and catch it on satellite.

This is just super cool. Such a wonderfully simple composition and the subject matter is very interesting. I really like that the wheelchair is included in the shot...like Maciek said, there can be as many stories about this shot as there are viewers. Good stuff.

Jennifer, beautiful compo. It is more than just a photo, there is a story in it that one could write. Everything is a bit secret: the wheelchair is empty, whom does it belong to??
The person is shrouded but seems quite healthy or is he/she desperate??
The "writing on the wall" what does it say? Is it the cause of such "regained health" miracle or is it the cause of the desperation?
Well, well done. I love it

Have seen this image on pbase a while ago, not matter how many times I come back to it I always find it fascinating.

I really like your works, both posted here and on your Internet gallery.
This photo also works great. As someone wrote - it has it's own story and it raises a lot of questions. I really like the atmosphere and composition.
Well done, I'm waiting for your other works!

Hi Jennifer, are you one of those insurance employee's that are spying the clients for fake illness?
This is great, funny and intriguing! who does the chair belong to? was she begging? so many questions..
Nice work :)

Very interesting. Great use of black and white. I would love to hear the backstory behind this as the woman doesn't look like she needs the wheelchair.

exelent, I like it:)

Strong picture! Black and White was the right choice. I really like such pictures which at the same time tell us so much and lead us to ask ourselves so many questions.
Thanks a lot
