Hidden escape,
guarded by glass
Follow cracked stones,
heed all warning
Withered gray walls,
hold nothing back
Lingering doubts,
hinder the free
The gateway calls,
the brave may pass

This shot was literally taken through a window, which gives the image an interesting texture. In some ways, the “fuzz” reminds me a spirit in the midst of choice – stay within the safety and peace of the temple or venture beyond the doors.
