  • The story behind the image:

    This subject stood out in the context of the rusting playground and an aging oak tree.

    I recalled Diogenes, the humble Grecian philosopher and beggar who, when approached by Alexander the Great, sardonically offered that he was blocking his view.

    I wondered were he to awaken, would he tell me that I was blocking his view.
