No Means Of Escape

I find inspiration for iphoneography in all sorts of people, places, and situations. A friend of mine is going through some difficult work-related emotions. Having her on my mind while walking through the kitchen one evening, I noticed my daughter's umbrella. "That's an idea," I thought. Gathering the trusty white sheet (for the backdrop), iPhone, and the umbrella, I scurry to the basement for the shot. The intention is to use the umbrella as a means of protection, because there is no means of escape. No door, no birdcage, or sizable fireplace will save my friend from her work dilemma.
As I provide this backstory for such a simple yet so meaning-filled image, I'm smiling. Those of us intoxicated with photography and storytelling via imagery, completely understand. In all these words, what I am trying to say is that iPhoneography offers an imaginative outlet for emotional expression. That in and of itself is a delight.
