Boy at Fountain

I need a title!

Picture of the Moment

I was cataloging miscellaneous pictures from this past April and found this one:

Boy at Fountain

I don’t take many pictures of people, and while I know I took that picture at the upscale Fashion Hills Mall, what I can’t believe is that there is only one person in it. Fashion Hills is a very busy mall and almost always full of people.

I fell in love with the picture — the small boy against the large water fountain, the interplay of light and shadows, the patterns, the earth tone coloring except for the little boy’s shirt, the fact that there are only two living organisms in the picture (I thought about photoshopping the plant out of there).

But what should I title the picture? I came up with three possibilities: Boy at Fountain. Patterns. Contemplation. What’s your favorite? Or did you come up with a different title?

    With the boy’s hand placed on the fountain, it almost looks like he wants to do something – “anticipation”; “temptation”; “Longing”. Great photo!

    I like contemplation, or how about infinity or continuum as the circle represents infinity or continuous and the two living organisms in your image can be considered infinite, or in continued genetic lines.

    Contemplation, I think. The photo makes me feel like the boy is really lonely for some reason. It makes me sad for him.

    Great picture! I was wondering why was he alone; so young. He looked so alone : (
    I would say contemplation.
