damsel in 'distress' by backlitstranger damsel in 'distress' by backlitstranger
When I was younger,
I would watch all the old black and white movies of girls being rescued by strong men,
wishing I could be like them.
Hiding in the woods and running away.
hoping someone was right behind me saving me.
but everytime i turned around there wasn't a sign of anyone.

Congratulations! I have left this photo on my Watch page for over two months! I wasn't sure how I felt about it when you first uploaded it so I decided to wait and see how I felt about it after a few days.

It has continued to grow on me over this time and is one which I would be very happy to have on display on my wall.

It appears simple but has an understated charm which makes me see more and more in it as time goes by. I think that you have captured a timeless feeling of lost love, romance and isolation.

Very well done imo

You are so creative and just so talented, any time you submit something it's always a fine piece of artwork. That's such a great idea and perfect setting. Assuming it is you in the photo I like how you are looking down in a depressed or "distressed" manner. And always great choice in the outfit, I think it really portrays that classic scene from a movie. The setting of the dark grove of birch trees are great for this mood and there's much more I like about it but I should stop

Keep up the great work!
