Feels a little too strait on and graphic. Its more about the lines than the kids

It is indeed straight-on, but I like the juxtaposition of the kids and the lines. Thanks for commenting.

I'll have to say I am not one that finds having to find the subject of the photo to be something I am fond of. Hanging in a gallery .... if the topic of the photo isn't obvious, I move on. The subject can be the visual clutter.... but then it would need to be really obvious that was the intent. Just a difference in taste. I guess I like being spoon fed what the author was trying to illustrate.

I agree this one is definitely not spoon-fed. Thanks for the comment.

I like it quite a bit, because it makes you stop and think. First of all, the kids look like miniatures because of the scale of the signs, newspapers, and windowpanes, which made me do a double-take re whether they were real or not. Second, their expressions are kind of strange -- the little girl could be shutting out looking at something awful, and the little boy could be worried about someone returning to that room. Third, why are they even sitting there where anyone can see them from the outside, and are they free to leave? It almost makes you kind of worried about them. I could see someone (the photographer) setting this up as a photo that was very ambiguous. Knowing that you just happened to be walking by and took this picture makes it even more intriguing (possibly disturbing). If this were in a gallery, it definitely would not be one that I walked right past.

Thanks Ozzie for a thoughtful commentary on a spur-of-the-moment shot.

It's a shame about the stop sign but you managed to shoot it so it doesn't detract from the image too much. I find this an interesting and unique photo with a lot going for it. A very appealing image.
