An Enigmatic Scene that raises Questions

This young girl looks happy. Could it be her birthday? Is she on a day out? But, who is the enigmatic figure at the top of the steps? Could it be her father? He is smartly dressed, but why is he looking away and not towards the child? What is he looking at and is he posing for the photograph? I have already imagined several situations or scenarios to explain the photograph. What about you? What do you imagine is going on? Let me know?


  1. Maybe the gentleman at the top is irritated at being delayed for the time it takes to take the photograph. He turned to yell at someone waiting by a car to be patient because a photo is being taken of the girl.

  2. That's a very good take on what might be happening, Maria! They say patience is a virtue. Perhaps he hasn't got any.
