Refugee I by Wyrdling
Refugee I
I wanted to have stood out in the middle of the swamp, but I was scared I'd end up stuck out there (forests are scary enough as it is at night without adding "murdered by swamp monsters" to the list of posibilities). 

It's a long (long) time since I've taken a proper photograph. Time has not been kind to me - or rather, the reasons I've been vacant are dank and dreadful. I'm trying to drag myself out of it, the depression, but it has long arms and abandonment issues.

I have an image in my head, a scene, that describes so perfectly how I feel. It sounds so over dramatic when I explain it to people in my head, like I'm a hypochondriac, so I've never properly told anyone real.
I wanted to create that image. This is nothing near close. But, in some ways, it spins its own story, one that still reflects some of me. Like I'm a refugee finally finding solid land on the edges of the swamp. I'd like to think that I'm that far in my journey.

I took this on my birthday, prompted by a need for change. So yes, I spent my birthday night with bugs and shadows as my companions.

In the same series:……

[Edit - January 9th, 2013]

Cleaned up my gallery (moved all drawings and random stuff to storage - as well as a lot of the "not so great" photos, that I feel I've outgrown), and cleaned out my watch list so that it only holds photographers now. I have a great plan, you see, to keep this account purely about photography and then use my secondary account, Gnildryw (which is pretty much empty right now), for random drawings, poem, css designs and so on. It's not gonna happen over night, but this account at least needed a bit of pre-emptive spring cleaning :]

Hopefully, this will mean that I can actually tick "yes" to recieving deviations in my inbox instead of how it is now - where everything is ticked off, because there was just too many (I had over 1500 people on my watch list). And you know, deviations = inspiration, which will hopefully = new photos!
