    The various nature of still images, a wonder if their power is a testament to our lack of imagination.

    Rather the opposite, I think.

    It seems not to me. Visually seeing being somehow greater than knowing.

    I wonder what the pic is trying to convey.

    Is that pic trying to tell us that we shouldn't fear life, that we should face all obstacles in life courageously?

    And also, why is the wall on the right side of the pic in lighter shades than the wall on the left side of the pic? Does darker shades represent hope and lighter shades represent loss of hope?

    The man actually fall from the wall with the lighter shades, so is this pic trying to convey that the man has lost all hope in life and he is committing suicide as a way to escape from his problems?

    I don't think it has anything to do with courage.

    This picture isn't art (well, perhaps, because art is so damned hard to define).

    It's a picture of someone falling from the Twin Towers from the September 11 Attacks, forced to jump, from the incredible heat, smoke, and lack of oxygen. Some were blown out by explosions.

    "face all obstacles in life courageously?" He didn't fall all the way down head first, the video shows him tumbling end over end. This is just a single screen shot.

    The darker shades, lighter shades are an illusion. It's actually the corner of the building. With one side having more sun.

    It seems you're unfamiliar with the image so it's interesting to see you interpret it that way, but to me, it's a picture of some fucked up repugnant shit, perpetrated by some fucked up repugnant people that I hope are getting eternally sodomized by packs of demonic hounds in the deepest nether regions of Hell.

    He looks like the hanged man from a classic tarot deck and that of course is the tower. It's really amazing that the photographer was able to grasp the exact moment this happened, every moment in life is like that, this just happened to be his last. I wonder if he fell, jumped or was pushed. A military parachuting instructor informed me that people do not die in the air they do die when they hit the ground. I think about how New Yorkers saw pink mist near the sidewalk. I think of my own personal feelings about global terrorism.

    Its unbelievable anyone wouldn't know this was a 9/11 photo. Personally I would rather have jumped than been crushed by the building, that is what haunted me for weeks, people being crushed.

    You do realize that the thread is asking people's thoughts on the picture?

    Maybe he did know it was 9/11; he just chose to focus on the symbolism of the objects, not the context of it.
