Hidden Within

Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers

We all have our secret hiding places, where we can get away from the world and spend time with our own recollections. Yet there is no better hiding place than being in a crowd. And when we find ourselves in a new city, anonymity is bound to be ours for the taking.

My choice of container may be unusual at first glance. Yet there are more than people within. There is exhilaration at the prospect of new discoveries, a thirst for knowledge and a sense of adventure. There are memories in the making, history finding its way from the shadows of nearby buildings and unveiling their secrets to those within, whenever they dare step off for a half hour. There are hopes and there is laughter, curiosity and delight.

Feel free to add more to the list. What does your inquisitive self hope for when you first arrive in a city or another new place of your choosing?

  1. A beguiling description of a tourist’s curiosity, Vic.

    (That’s a very interesting looking tour bus – the architectural construction on the side is an intriguing of optical illusion) 🙂

    • Thank you, Lee-Anne. Curiously enough, this picture was taken not far from Ford Theatre where Abraham Lincoln was assassinated and the Capitol building was still being constructed at the time: I believe they were erecting the second tier and were not yet started on work for the dome atop.
