Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape / DP Challenge: Feed Your Senses and Memory / Travel Theme: Elements
“Let us keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us.”
This week several of my favorite challenges lent themselves to combination, and I’ve chosen to address them with a single photograph. As I interpret it, the supplicant is honoring the memory of a departed loved one, who has escaped the confines of his or her earthly life and moved on to whatever follows. The woman beside him addresses the feed your senses challenge with the scent of the joss sticks she holds. Finally, the burning candle represents fire, one of the four elements in Ailsa’s weekly Travel Theme.
