Let me know what you think about this image. If you like it and why.
The weekly photo challenge sponsored by WordPress has been a sweet part of my week for months. This forum provides a platform for me to meet scores of others who are sparked by the notion of a photographic theme, and to express its meaning through individual interpretation. Literally and visually, we can escape into the world of images to fulfill it.
Escape is a tricky concept. We can move in various different directions, and still equate its posturing. We can: ran from the ties that bind, rush through a door of dark and meet the light on the other side, accelerate day to night or night to day, pierce the angst with creativity, shed the cool on a humid day, elude a confrontation, dive into an activity, and…
Truly, to escape is not always to flee the scene. To escape can be a way to build layer upon layer of good experiences.
This concept can conjure both the negative and the positive. It can be yin to yang or the subtle conversion to a new vista. Momentarily, a hot fudge sundae satiates a bitter argument. A mid-morning snack prevents hunger pains. A holiday can open worlds of discovery.
To escape can be a pile-high stack of possibilities, easing or slowing. Or pushing the air to vent itself from inhale to exhale.
In the Lens section is my entry: a covered bridge. It seems an apt choice, because it takes us from one place to another. It is a conduit for change, because escape is definitely a sign that life is about to be altered.
