Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape – Run!

Can you run ... and can you hide?
Can you run … and can you hide?

Escape can be a thing of the mind, a displacement. It can mean a vacation to a far away paradise, or at the very least, travel to a kinder, friendlier place.

Escape can also be literal, to run from danger, to seek safety if life is threatened.

Which do these offer? And why? Only you know. Only you can guess the truth.

Escape while you can!
Escape while you can!

    1. Growing up in the city, fire escapes are many things. Escape in an emergency, obviously, but in the city, also the only “outdoors” place to escape the wall of an apartment. Many a child has dreamed of his or her future escape on a fire escape 🙂

    1. Thanks. Given where I was standing and the very limited space in which I could move, I had to be clever. Basically, I had to shoot pretty much straight up, always a difficult angle to shoot without a lot of distortion. It came out better than I expected, for which I am duly grateful:-)

  1. You have so many bloggers it takes 30 seconds for your page to load. I have to tread very carefully with this challenge or I will lose half of my followers. Your picture is quite true . I also photograph construction scaffolding .

  2. I have to admit I thought this literal take on the challenge was a dangerous move but it worked! If you view the photo by scrolling down instead of loading the pic you’ll see what I mean. Superb shot!

    1. Most of the time, there’s a latch that releases a final piece of ladder that gets you either on the sidewalk or very close to it. This one probably has a latch too, I just didn’t catch it in the picture.

    1. Fire escapes were the “decks” of kids raised in the city. Our balconies, our little piece of the outdoors. AND our escape in case of fire. I’m surprised at home many peopel don’t recognize them anymore.
