Captures the mood. Fortunately Kentucky never had an economy so there's so little to loose : ] best...jerry

@ordinaryimages: Yo, Jerry.There's Churchill Downs, one day a year - and there's always Jim Beam. Pockets of an economy - here and there along the bluegrass hills. A beautiful state.

@micke bergling: erThanks, Micke - this was taken at dusk. there was still indigo blue in the sky through the upper window - the only other light being a brilliant streetlight just outside the lower windows.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, FL, United States

I'm thinking the new economy is and will be as bleak as this room is sparse. Well done, my friend.

18 Nov 2009 9:50pm

@Viewfinder: Everything will be what it is for us. I'm beginning to learn to turn off the news.

Antoine from BOURGES, France

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Ok, so does dust on the table mean you can't afford the maid anymore?????

18 Nov 2009 10:59pm

@Susan: Afford a maid? Who would know that work was done? And more important to the maid - who would pay for the service?

Chris from South Jersey, United States

really cool light and shadows......how can this be the new economy - there are no computers......

18 Nov 2009 11:04pm

@Chris: Chris - computers? can't you see...

...they're over the shoulders -
out on the street -
getting on the bus -
in search of the job -
that has just been eliminated.

Cricket-TammyWarren from United States

The title is so fitting...

I do like the simplicity of this image. The light beaming in adds that unique touch.

@Cricket-TammyWarren: This is very beautiful, Tammy - nicely seen with rich detail.

Scott F. Schilling from San Martin, United States

All I can say to your commentary is Amen! Wonderful image - perfect!

lol -- so when is it all going to get better then... it is looking bleak from NYC as we head into winter... ;)

19 Nov 2009 5:33pm

@dj.tigersprout: I suppose Moscow at the height of communism was more bleak than an East Coast winter - but not by much. The give-back is the joy that spring delivers when it finally arrives. Best wishes, Jaycee. Keep an open eye for the robin and that first crocus bloom. Baseball will surly follow...

Magda from Vancouver, Canada
