wrong number

Inspired by my friend and colleague, Rachel Zhou's site transnationalmoments.com I am posting some more people pictures. Rachel argues that pictures are, "open narratives that can transcend the barriers of culture, language, geography, human experiences." And that, "pictures often bring us some moments in which we feel more or less connected with the places which we have never been and with people whom we have never met." Rachel adds that in these moments, "we feel 'transnational,' not only because we physically crossed borders, but because we have discovered the connections existing in people and their lives in different places."

Maybe the above image (taken at a Burlington fairground a few weeks ago) fits with that idea—how many of us have hoped for a winning number in a lottery or on fairground wheel—how few of us have ever won?
