July 2013, Amsterdam
There's an untold story here. A story which I, as a passerby, don't know and never will.
That's what captivated me here. It will be forever unknowable, won't it, the reason why this
toy ostrich was abandoned on a front step in a busy city. Where is the child that played with it?
The toy has no means of expression, but its forlorness cried out to me anyway.
The moment made me respond viscerally, and because it was so random, it became special.
I've so enjoyed this challenge. Thank you to Duncan of the Kuantan blog for hosting it, and for the wonderful photographers that shared the best of your 2013 with us. Loved it, and look forward to your Best of 2014 :)
