Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadowed

View through gatehouse

Shadowed

What secrets lie
hidden
within the
shadowed corners
of history?
With gazes drawn
to the bright
vistas,
the carefully chosen
points of focus,
we view a
scene shaped by
the victors’ hands,
by those in positions
of prominence
and power.
Seek with
a careful eye
amongst the shadows:
the secrets of the
dispossessed
may someday be
revealed.


This is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge. To have a look at the other entries go here.

The picture is the view through the gatehouse at Newark Castle that was taken in November during photography 101. I decided against using it back then but I thought it fitted this week’s prompt rather well. If you’d like to see the rest of the pictures taken around the castle, you can see them here and here.

  1. Very powerful ideas! I think your writing and photos are a good fit for the Horror Writers workshop in Transylvania this summer. You present a darkness, yet pull us back out and leave us with something to think about, an effect. You inspire me!

    1. Thank you for your lovely words. I’m incredibly flattered! And while my writing can get a little dark (okay, I’ll admit, very dark) at times, I’ve never seen myself as a horror writer! Though I might have to try my hand at it some time…

      1. I’m going to write more dark ghosty shadowy stories and poems with supernatural and magic for the horror workshop, a sub-genre, not blood and guts. Never even wanted to write horror but this offer was too good and it will improve my narrative writing. I’m pulled to work in a genre I don’t know well and a place I’m very unfamiliar with. I like how you use shadow to talk about secrets of the conquered who don’t usually get to tell their story.
