shooting people (waiting)

“for a while” is a phrase whose length can’t be measured
at least by the person who’s waiting”

― haruki murakami, south of the border, west of the sun



would you wait

for whom

how long

and why

Photo 101 on WordPress had consequences.

One, there were others, was being invited to join Justine’s Eclectic Corner, a select group of bloggers, writers, poets, photographers and errr…me (yes, go figure)

So each week, a challenge is laid down.

The first week’s challenge was “guessing game”, the idea was that other members of the group should seek to guess the subject matter of a photo in the style of a “wrinkle”.

Many of the guesses came very close.

As you can see. Below and to the left.

“Being empty is like a vacant house. An unlocked, vacant house. Anybody can come in, anytime they want. That’s what scares me the most”

― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore


What lies.

Behind closed doors.

Silent screams.

“In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only do with somebody else. It’s important to combine the two in just the right amount.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Window

“This life’s dim windows of the soul
Distorts the heavens from pole to pole
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not through, the eye.”

― William Blake
