A mystery of man

I took this picture http://www.photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=5541944 at Boat Quay; it was more or less accidental.

For me the picture is mysterious. I don't know how to pinpoint what I feel. It's like a glimpse on the fabric of reality that is usually hidden.

I am aware that i am loking at the picture thru the prism of my personal experience and i may see things that are not really there. Usually, to avoid such bias i put away a picture for two to three months and then inspect it again. If I still feel what I felt when I saw it for the first time I assume that my feelings are more or less objective.

After few months i still find the picture moody and mysterious, almost symbolic. What is your opinion? Do I fool myself by my lack of objectiveness while, in fact, the picture is just an ordinary snap without any mood or meaning whatsoever? I am really curious about your thoughts:)

Thank you very much for your comments:)
