    I'm not sure what to think of your entry, oh it is well shot & definitely gives the feeling of directionless with all the signs but also I feel sad because the picture gives me an image of someone who is homeless & is directionless for that reason, the man standing next to the bags gives me that feeling. More than likely it is a wrong assumption.

    This is a tremendous statement, captured quite effectively. I hope he finds his way.

    Steve,
The man is sort of integral to the shot. I think perhaps I should have titled it "Homeless and Confused".

    Good luck to any driver! I'm not sure the man is helpful to the image.

    What was that song, "signs , signs , every where a sign!" ?? Good capture & title.

    I can see where you are going with this :-)
Excellent example of street photography with lots of interest and a strong social comment. Good eye for spotting this. Love your composition - you have my vote.

    very well composed, even to the point that the entrance sign is only partially in image, like there is no entrance. The shot speaks to me, so much so, that I'd probably leave it untitled. Well done.

    Hi Jade,
It's all about ambiguity.

    A wonderful title and finely captured image. I am left wondering if the figure and the bags are connected though.

    Interesting capture and interruption. Which way? Quite confusing!. The angle of the shot it not ideal, would have been better at street level and the zoom level flattened the image, but well seen.
