Lunch alone

Eating at "Mano a mano", I couldn't help noticing the quality of the light on the table and wall next to me.

The contents of the image symbolyze loneliness. I cut the table in half, not revealing its left side. This centers the attention on the empty (lonely) chair. Furthermore, showing the other chair would have symbolized the possible presence of another person. Since the point of the picture is to represent hopeless loneliness, only a single chair could be present.
