No worries, John! Thanks for your thoughts, and thank you for taking the time to formulate them and write them down.
Slobadon, fair enough. I'm interested in what people see in a photograph with a bunch of explanation, and I even dislike titles since I want to see what I can feel first. However, since you ask politely, I will tell you what I was striving for.
First, what I was trying for isn't entirely capable of being put down in words - else why make the photograph? I visualized the photograph first with a corner, a man's foot and coat visible, having passed around the corner, in motion. Looking quickly around my back yard, I decided to try it down the aisle between the two buildings instead. The initial notion was a feeling of departure, of someone passing by or of leaving, someone almost gone but not quite. Looking at the results I shot, I decided to emphasize the light ahead of the figure, and darken the area behind, to enhance the sense of motion from one place to another.
So, the ideas are departure and secondary idea of movement from/to. Ideally, the photograph would evoke a remembered feeling of when someone in your life moved on in some sense, or perhaps a scene from a book or a movie where something similar occurred.
