Negative Space

There's a concept in art called negative space. Basically, negative space is defined as when the space around a subject forms an interesting picture that is different from the subject itself. Which got me to thinking about my life, of course. Specifically, the negative space of my life - the current subject of my life and what is or isn't depicted by the space around it. Or said another way, what isn't in my life and how it sheds light on what is there.

Stepping back, I'm not so sure it's a balanced composition. Know what I mean?
