"365 Project" - Day 25 - "Caged"
Jan. 25, 2010 - "Caged"
Feeling very un-me today. Needed to escape... so I grabbed my camera and snuck out the back door at work. It had been raining hard since before dawn... but the skies apparently needed a break too, and all became still. I wandered around behind the shopping center... snapping photos of reflections in puddles... a flag a half-mast... a torn mattress tossed by a dumpster... and the barbed wire capping the fence... keeping me from going forward.
With camera raised to my eye, I hear a voice calling my name... a co-worker, come to call me back in to answer a question. Escape over... forced back in... left with the final picture... the barbed-wire and razor-wire coils. How fitting! Yet... how beautiful!
