Weekly Photo Challenge – Escape
This has been quite an emotional weekly challenge for me in a really lovely way.
As I have been a bit poorly (woman with man flu this week) I have been under strict instructions to rest which I rarely do. As I have started to feel a bit better it have given me a chance to go through some old blog posts and chose the images that for very personal reasons to me say ‘escape’. The people who know me personally will know exactly why these mean what they do to me.
So many of these photographs go back to my very early days when I had finally escaped situations that I needed to remove myself from. Moving, going forwards and most importantly picking up my camera again for the first time in many, many years and having to learn to use it all over again. Learning to just be me again. Doing the things I love. An escape from the withheld to the creative.
You can only be glad that I am getting better as if I was laid up any longer I would have been going through the thousands of images I have on my external hard drive and this would have been a way longer blog post.
(I apologise for the ridiculous huge water marks in some of them. When you first start out sharing your work people scare you into doing that….If anyone wants to nick my images then firstly god love em, secondly, go get a camera of your own I promise you will get hooked and probably find your hidden creative side)
So, yes. Escape to happiness. A wonderful journey for me indeed.
