Challenge has finished
This challenge is about conveying emotion without seeing someone's face. You may crop the face out, obscure it with other objects or photograph the subject from behind. Feel free to include as many subjects as you want and use any kind of subject (animal, human, statue) as long as we can see NO FACES. Lastly, please tell us what emotion/mood/them your picture conveys.

57th place (joint)
This image was taken on the day my 99 year old grandma died. The chair represents someone missing, the moving water that time and life goes on, the small stones in the surf are the people left behind, the dark clouds are the grief and the bright sky is the place she is now and the venue is that the family has a history with the sea.
