Left coffee cups on the table at Cafe, there were two persons who were talking across the
table. I took this just after they had left the table.

This is an ordinary scene at cafe, and even if you were there, you would not feel anything.
But once we capture it in photo, this photo stirs our imagination so much.
A wife and husband? Lovers? Business? Friend?
What were they talking about.? What they would be? Why did they choose there? What
conversation did they make?

I think what photo distinguishes from other arts is a sense of time flow from past to
future, even though a shutter is at a time.

Also the things people used are surprisingly eloquent in various things, such as the sense
of distance and familiarity between two people.
By not taking people, I tried to put the feeling of those time flow of the two.
