tedium by takitus tedium by takitus
this makes me think of the times when I am stuck somewhere I don't want to be, doing something I don't want to do.... like I'm just shuffling trash around with my feet in the dark.

This seems like it's in the corner of an elevator. Maybe those walls just famillar to me.

oh that feeling of frustration. unfortunately (for me) it's almost always there, never going away.
you really did a very good photo of this emotion.

loving the colors, and that darkness. it's sad how that room doesn't look like abandoned, it just looks like no one likes to be there (guess that's the point)
:D

Hi,

I like reading everyone's take on this. To me it reminds me of a room I had to work in at some really bad job at one time.

Anything that makes me think of something in my life I respect the piece and the artist. Thanks for sharing this one.

Wayne,

very nice :D i like this because im rather depressed (yes again) and this expresses my feelings, just kinda "where is life going?" and shuffling around to find my way... i think it would be cool if you did another shot of this with a person sitting on the chair, head in their hands, elbows on their knees type pose. but thats just an idea :) very nice work, keep it up +fav

Wow, this really makes me quite uncomfortable. I love the green overtones, it really manifests an overwhelming, unwelcoming, sterile feel to the overall piece. The compositon originally struck me as an interrogation room setting, .. I can see the person in the chair backed into the corner by his interrogators. It just feels so hostile. Excellent work hon.

this is a shot that gains a lot through its description. all that darkness, those colors and the stuff lying around the chair ... it feels as if there's still a ghost sitting on the chair, that of a man who worked there for years. kinda hard to describe ... but hey: :+fav:
