- My dark side is that I don’t get angry very easily, but when I do it is very extreme and can come off as unexpected and out of nowhere. - The reason why I chose this particular picture is because in this picture everyone is just living their everyday lives without having realised yet that there is a huge explosion in the background. The rest in the people living their everyday routines VS the chaos in the sudden explosion no one expected. - 62 fleet St, 1944, uncredited photographer
