A motif in the novel is falling. The people fear falling and some actually do. They fear failure and injuries. Both Angle and Meme fall from tremendous heights. Esperanza fears falling and plans to float away as she is a red balloon.
I like this photo because it merges 2 different things/ideas. It brings together a big idea, the landscape, and a smaller thing, a person. If I were to recreate this, I would put the background as a picture of the landscape of where the person is from.
