These Walls by lAliusl These Walls by lAliusl
The only walls that exist are those we construct around ourselves.

You could break them if you only tried.
But you stand there afraid to leave and afraid to stay.


INFO:
This shot was inspired by the Trapt song "These Walls"
I was trying to convey the feeling of being trapped; trapped by your own perceptions, fears, trapped behind something you could easy break through, like water :)

I froze for this shot, the water temp was about...umm... FREEZING! -__- the high that day was 50 degrees F
The process was, set the timer on my camera - jump under the water - count to twenty-click!- jump out and cuss till the shock wore off - repeat
Summer cannot come soon enough!

darkened and B&W in PS

These Walls by ~lAliusl is an expressive photograph which conveys powerful emotions and meaning. The obscurity of his face and the soft liquid water becoming the 'wall' reveals so much about our our inner selves. We are the ones who stop ourselves from achieving so much more. ( Featured by FaMz )

Amazing shot. And sometimes, you don't feel like trying and the walls just cave in even more.

I suspected that it related with Trapt in some way.

I like the concept.

Great shot! Reminds me of Halle Berry's picture on the cover of Gothika.
