Weekly Photo Challenge: Escape

They call it challenge for a reason.  Escape. Or trying to.

Escape defined : Break free from confinement or control    (School is out June 17th)

Need to get away. Get out. Break free.

Attempted escape. Some of mine seem like “trapped” or “escape is necessary” . It makes me consider posting a photograph of our jail that they built along the Monongahela River, spoiling the scenic view. Escape from reality.  A fire escape?

Get out of the Car Wash

Did you ever feel like you can’t escape when you are in the middle of the car wash?

A hopeful escape from reality and the rat race. I guess I need to buy a ticket.  Oh well.

  4. Love your quirky escape pics, Ruth. How did you get in that Mail chute? I hate being in the car at a car wash. I’m always scared the windows might break and those giant brushes will get me. 😯

    The mail box chute shot is inspired! And the car wash looks terrifying – have never been in one! 🙂
