Enigmatic as with the other photo, and hard to decipher. The kneeling figure may be wearing a scarf, or possibly a shawl and yarmulke. Is he the same person as the standing person in the other photo?

Both photos successfully present isolation and creepiness, especially in conjunction with their titles. But unless there’s a clue I am overlooking, it doesn’t seem to me that the menace is really identifiable from the images themselves. Many different narratives may fit, particularly as there is no alt text. I’m just going to assume that atmosphere and implication were what the Artist was going for rather than a specific story.

Unlike the other one, this one is harder to get. And I'm afraid I didn't manage to get the overall meaning.

The title says that it's too late, but too late for what? The only thing I've been able to understand is that the guy in black could be Death, and the guy on his knee is pleading and bargaining for his life, but it's too late for him.

At first, I wasn't really fond of the big light on the left, but then I realised that the two guys were far away from it, and weren't looking at it. What it could mean, I have no idea, but I'm pretty sure there is something to get from that.
Also, it's interesting that the light, the tree and its shadow, and the building kinda give an oppressive atmosphere, while the street seems to be pretty open.

Anyway, even though I prefered the other picture, this one did great. Good job and thank you for sharing.
