About the best in us.

When I took this photo, I immediately wanted to connect it with the inner world of man depicted in it. It's my mother. Her inner world is closed at the intersection of the strangestly combined layers. On the left half of the photo you can see the reflection of the rusty pipe on the roof and pot with plants. All recent years mother has been tearing apart to maintain life warmth in the house which doesn't hold her. This is necessary until i will gain a foothold somewhere. On the other half, the flowers making up an amazing pattern on her silhouette, and there is another window behind her, where the light of the sun lay down very well. All this is framed by one big frame. It seems to me that mother really wants to get out of it , to end this strange illusory existence, because it contradicts her essence.
