I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Best seen Large On Black and listening to Death Cab for Cutie

 

I’m fairly confident this will not go down particularly well in Flickrland, but I’m not bothered. It doesn’t pack much of a punch or grab you by the collar and say ‘Check me out!’... but it’s actually one of favourite shots I’ve taken. Symbolic or shambolic, I don’t think I care. The simplicity and the moment is what this is about. This one is for the memory. Perhaps you had to be there; not another person for miles, the low evening light just shining through the reed tops, a cacophony of noise from the recently migrated birds and the all the flowers bursting full of spring action. The walk into the dark was actually far more pleasant than imagined with the carpet of wild garlic and bluebells paving the way. Actually, I’m off to walk this path again, right now...
