Rendez-Vous in Dreams by wchild Rendez-Vous in Dreams by wchild

:meditation:

I was going to the drugstore and noticed this older gentleman with a briefcase standing on the sidewalk. He looked like he was waiting for someone. He walked about 10 meters down the street, stopped, turned, walked back, stopped, looked at the street, walked back again, etc. This pattern continued at least for those ten minutes that I stood there on the sidewalk nearby. Perhaps he suffered a dementia, perhaps he actually was passing time and waiting for someone, perhaps he wasn't playing with a full deck. Nevertheless, it's interesting how an ordinary and familiar - even boring - scene can sometimes turn into something interesting and almost a dream. It was in this dream that we met. Me and Him.

Taken on the Keskuspuistokatu street in Kemi, Finland. [link]

A 'non-dream' version of the same man:

Wow...it's almost surreal. Even the 'normal' photo is awesome. And the description you made really gave another feel to the photo. I mean, yeah, he could be suffering from brain damage, but damn...he has a briefcase and walks nervously back and forth ? It's almost like a scene from a movie.

Thanks a lot Bro. The scene was awesome indeed. I did my best in capturing it.. Even though the result is not as good as the original feeling. I could feel it in my gut and groin. :D
