A very nice quote to accompany this picture, indeed it seems to be wisdom itself. Superb image. Good day.

I love the quote, so wise ;) and your image, like of a newspaper, is very, very moving, how they cross and don't look at each other but we do. Time is walking. Superb, E*

@k@: yes, that's my motive, to make it look like a photo from the newspapers :)
