Heartbreaking..Thanks, that you remember us,how cruel the world can be.

Thank you Rose! Yes, lupus est homo homini! The result of the summit and its circumstances are probably even more cruel.

Oh my.

This photo leaves me speechless.

Yes, it says a lot – unfortunately 🙁

A powerful image.

Thank you very much!

Simply wonderful!

Thanks again, Luisa! I am glad you like it.

It is so meaningful ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Thank you! Not everyone understood it.


Mr. Zettl, this is the most touching and compelling photo I have seen in recent memory. Thank you for a moving, and in its way inspiring, image. This is where photography borders poetry. As every, fair play to you for your stimulating and informative blog.

Many many thanks! I was afraid that the photo would not go down well as it is very grainy – not particularly wise in these times of ultra-sharp images. But I am relieved by your friendly words!

Why should we see this picture?
Why are we reminded that a great many people have it really bad?
Why do we still vote at all?

Thanks for your questions! I assume they are rhetorical in nature but would like to comment on them. Also, I assume you know that I don’t mean to be presumptuous or lecturing.

Why are we still voting? Why are we still posting? Since you are a critical person who observes his environment well, you probably also post to share your observations or to put your thoughts into a form. Basically I don’t do anything else. When we “like” a post, we’re showing our approval – or at least signaling that we appreciate the poster’s work.

However, I read something else from your question, namely a great deal of dissatisfaction, coupled with a question of “meaning”, “sense”. Both are easy to understand in times like these, but a good time to reflect that it’s up to us to find “sense” of everything.

As far as the photo itself is concerned, well, it’s like abstract art: What we see or can recognize in it, what it triggers in us, has little to do with the picture, but with our thinking.

Ja, die Fragen waren rhetorischer Natur. Danke für Ihre Antwort, die ich voll und ganz teile.

Danke, freut mich. Schönes WE!

What a powerful image.

Thank you very much ❤️

I love this!

Thank you so much ❤️ Enjoy a great weekend!
