The Cage by DestinyBlue The Cage by DestinyBlue
Our own mind; it's a place we can escape to, but we can never escape from. It's the ultimate prison.

She sits here and thinks as she plays with her hair, not realising as she twists it round her fingers she's creating her own cage,physically and mentally.

Wanted to design something interesting with the framing and composition, and went with the narrow colour scheme to try and reflect her internal feelings.

I'm trying to worry less, and was thinking about worrying less, then I realised I was worrying about worrying less! Made myself smile XD
The mind is such an intriguing thing, how no one else can read our thoughts, but they influence everything we do. We can imagine whats it's like to be someone else, but never really feel it, we will always be within our own heads, looking out...
