That's a familiar internal monologue scene...that is to say, I know how that feels. I quite like the shot. The lighting works well to cast shadows on the subject's face giving a nice and brooding feel.

hei pete, how are you?
Here, I and my staff want writing a new art magazine, now for the italian people, and we're interested to put this picture in our pages. If you are interested you can write me with a note and tell us that you autorize the use of the image.
thank you ^^

Writers live in pensive black and white worlds, apparently.

I'm writing a story about a writer (it's a shame you can't read it because it's in hungarian, but anyway: www.stolenmemory.blog.hu) and the scary thing is that I imagined my story's main character absolutely the SAME like Mike in this picture!Everything is the same, the way he looks at the laptop with a cigarette in his hand, the way he sits there, everyhing...so even if it'll be a book, I will ask you to let me use this as my book jacket :D
I don't think that I have to say how much i love this picture...it means to me more than any other.

i like this too.

looks like he is trying to hard to say something or to think of something to write.

The beautiful ordinary setting is what makes this nice.

I love the whole setting here, how he seems to be lost in his own little world. The picture is full of little details and that gives the viewer a chance to come up with a back story for it.

I love photos that tell a story and this one certainly does that. Mike looks like he's waiting for something. Maybe an important email or an instant message. Or perhaps its something altogether different. I notice the tripod on the tabletop. Maybe he's viewing some secret footage he's filmed of someone who lives in the house opposite. Is he a stalker? Or a serial killer? Or perhaps he's just catching up with Eastenders on iPlayer :D

it does doesnt it ? :) i just think its strange how this photo can be read so - extreme sadness , extreme tranquility or the psychotic nature you found in it too ?
this was mikes apartment kindof 'as is' , we wanted the photos to be real , so didnt worry about any objects needing moved or anything , i set the tripod there perhaps it enhances mikes creative mind and passion for photography and writing etc , or perhaps its just a tripod on a table lol

There are so many ways to see an image and that I guess is the beauty of art.
