I like that you’ve done the photograph on mono tones Nikki. It makes the situation feel even more lonely. Nice one.

This photograph is really a masterpiece – not only of photography, but as a social history. It’s almost like the famous iconic picture of the mother and her two children that grew to define the Great Depression/Dust Bowl – one picture representing an entire period of time. I love that it’s not in color, but not just in black and white either. What do you call this type of picture?

A photo defining a historic moment in time. I like that it is in black and white and the chairs are empty, emphasising the impact lockdown has had on lives and businesses.

Nikki, make sure you return when it is alive again with people – then you will have captured the impact of the lockdown.

I like the impact of the black and white photograph. It adds more feeling to it. Thank you.

Nikki, this is the type of photo where I want to look at each and every element in it, in case I miss something. It has so much feeling and the simplicity makes it very appealing to look at. Great composition.

I love your description when you wrote ‘document the emptiness’. The image looks so lonely.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
