    I liked this last group, Tony.

    About the Edward Hopper couple. Your picture made me realize the effect bodily contours can have on the atmosphere of the picture.

    The couple you photographed, although separated and with its back to the observer exhales a calm and even friendly atmosphere due to their soft round contours.
    In Hopper the sharp contours usually suggest an implacable hard loneliness.

    Thanks. True, it's street photography - and I would not have chosen them as models due to their formless figures, but it somehow works. There is a massive disconnect between them though, life bees like that.

    Yes, you are right, in fact one wouldn´t take them for a couple. From behind they just look like any man or woman sitting beside each other. But that´s what makes the picture interesting.

    The people on you island look all lonely. But that is probably the perspective of the photographer.

    I would say they are melancholic. Maybe they are expressions of self-portraiture, at times. Not all the time, though, happily.

    No, of course not. But maybe it is this tinge of melancholy or loneliness that sets the atmosphere of the picture. It suggest, for example, that the girl lighting the cigarette, has a whole world of her own.

    I can confirm that she is much in a world of her own, ha. I like your point on the rounded people sitting at the boardwalk. skinny people would give in a more aggressive edge.
