Weekly Photo Challenge: Hope

This week, the challenge is ‘hope’.

This is a desperate, last-gasp hope, but hope nonetheless. Its’ bald but slightly plaintive expression is quite moving, I think. This piece of artwork is a story in two sentences but it is somewhat infuriatingly vague! I imagine that’s deliberate, to make you think about what might have happened.

This was an installation artwork at the Winter Gardens in Sheffield several years ago. I have no idea if it’s still there or the exact situation which inspired it, unfortunately. I don’t even know the artists’ name.

Apparently blogs need to cover a certain niche in order to attract readers. My aim is not to attract readers. I don't deny it would be nice not to just be spouting to myself, but the reason I set this blog up was to give myself somewhere to write down my thoughts. If anyone reads them, that's a bonus. This blog will cover a mix of things - anything that comes to mind that I want to write about. I make no promises about how often I will publish new content.

    Looks like a Tracey Emin, she did a whole series of neon signs dealing with emotions rather than pizza.
