I love this picture.
We were returning to our hotel after exploring Palma. Being on holiday, the world looked different compared to the day-to-day life of home. I was relaxed and full of sights, sounds, smells, and even flavors of the city. My eyes were looking everywhere. Then here’s this man who looks intent on where he’s going, seemingly immersed in serious thought.
This photo captures a sensation I’ve experienced far too often. I see a person walking purposefully, yet on autopilot, all the while somewhere else entirely. It’s as if thoughts are all that exists and everything else in the world passes by in a blur. When this thinking man of Palma arrives at his destination, will he remember how he got there?
