This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is BOUNDARIES.
According to The Daily Post, BOUNDARIES are about “limits . . . whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects.”
Self’s first example of BOUNDARIES is a map. Maps exist as delineations of boundaries. The boundaries provide essential context (This exists in relation to that, and so forth).
Below is a map of St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin’s most iconic park. The wildlife, the people, the sense of place bring her back over and over again.
Her second example of BOUNDARIES is the balcony railings around the upper tiers of the new Globe Theatre, in London’s South Bank. The balconies are pitched very steeply. In fact, without the railings, a playgoer might experience severe vertigo:
Her final example of BOUNDARIES is the bridge over Holborn Aqueduct. Self wandered down there one day last summer, looking for the Church of St. Bride’s, which she eventually found with the assistance of a London cabbie. (Self to Cabbie: “Do you know where St. Bride’s is?” Cabbie: “Yes. Hop in.” Self: “Do. You. Know. Where. It. Is.” Cabbie: “Course I know where it is! I’m a LONDON CABBIE.”)
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
