Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

Hell-Fire Caves

Hell-Fire Caves

This week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post asked us to share a photograph which, to us, means: Escape

I chose this photograph that I took a few years ago mainly because I love the atmosphere from the image. The shadows, the unknown, the single figure walking into pitch darkness… Escaping.

I like to think it tells a story, maybe the person is Escaping into the shadows, hiding away from the world. Wanting to get away from everything. Allowing themselves to be consumed by the dark. That could also be symbolic of depression.

Maybe the person is trapped in the caves, an unknown terror lurks in the deep. Desperately trying to Escape, but struggling to find a way out. Disorientated and lost. Gripped by panic and fear?

However you wish to look at it, I think it throws up a number of possibilities and that’s what I love about this photograph.

    The person seems to me to be moving forward into the dark with assurance, fearlessly.
