— "Tiananmen Square"?

I don't wan't to be annoying in any way but all I see
are red oranges… even taken on Tiananmen Square,
the story telling is not in the picture!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

This does not look like a Square but Round oranges.

It is true, that oranges are not square in nature. The depiction is esoteric. One sole blood orange defying the homogeneous nature of conformity.

The resolution is not so defined but the composition of the shot is very well-executed. Historic moment. IS this your's?

I don't know that "esoteric" is the word you're looking for, in that it implies even less obvious information.

I find, sometimes, that trying to be clever doesn't work at all. And I don't think the events in Tiananmen Square are about non-conformity, they're about resistance and refusal. Therefore, even with your explanation, I don't find that your image is a successful representation of the title for me. I should think there are better analogies waiting to be discovered.

I could be wrong.

I think we can improve the allegory of the shot. There is not clear relevance of the oranges to the event. Also, the tags in the oranges are a bit distracting.

I am not sure how anyone can even remotely connect these two things. It takes a strange mind to make that connection.

The blood orange is an actual species of fruit. In the picture the red color signified opposition to the conformity of autocratic political rule.

The loss of life often what happens when one resists the autocratic regimes of the world such as was the case by  Wang Weilin in China on that fateful day on June 5th. 

The widest coverage of the event and one of the best-known photographs of the event appearing in both Time and Life magazines, was documented by Stuart Franklin. He was on the same balcony as Charlie Cole, and his roll of film was smuggled out of the country by a French student, concealed in a box of tea according to the NY Times .

Well, I guess we have all different interpretation on different matters. Lets all agree to disagree.
