Unexpectedly struck

It was just one of those moments, you turn around and the image strikes you, somehow it clicks and you just have to take that photograph and try as much as you can to capture and covey it.

Plato’s Cave #1

Reminds me of Plato’s Analogy of the Cave:

“Plato lets Socrates describe a group of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of a fire behind them, and begin to ascribe forms to these shadows. According to Plato’s Socrates, the shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.”
