It seems I have a penchant for metaphors of late, trust me there is a lot more coming. I have been trying to get into more of a story telling role with my images; I mean they do say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Someone said they thought this image was a nightmare, but not really just a metaphor;
Also, hang by a hair. Be in a risky or unstable situation, as in His promotion was hanging by a thread, or With the lead actor sick, the success of our play hung by a hair. This expression, already proverbial in the early 1500s, alludes to Damocles, who vexed King Dionysius with constant flattery.
So I guess poor model Ally is literally hanging by a thread with the cheeky Raven setting fire to her rope………..well at least she doesn’t have too far to fall. Perhaps there is something more there with the burning bush as well, I think there was something in there about a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush; except the bird is neither in her hand or the Bush. I know it is meant that it is better to hold onto something one has than to risk losing it by trying to get something better.
I suppose it could relate to if you love something set it free and hope it does not return to bite your ASS! lol
The background of this image is actually an old shell of a house in Silverton, NSW that we visited earlier this year. I knew this shot would eventually become something.
I hope you have a brilliant week…
