When I saw the title 'Bound' before having an actual look at the picture, an image of a person with hands tied with a rope flashed on my mind. Talking about stereotypes... Luckily, this was something entirely different.
Her head bound with a thin string gives an immediate impression that it is her mind being bound and not her physically. What dreams there were to fulfill, what goals for her to pursue if only she could find the strength or courage to tear herself free and let go for the things she would want so badly to achieve. Whether it is some obligations she feels she cannot let go or obstacles that seem beyond her means to surpass, I don't know, but I do know that the sense of her not being able to be the person she wants to be is strong. At least in my imagination... and that's enough for me.
and lived in the shadows of the decaying wallpaper that peeled away from the walls of the
old house i lived in.
in my dream she would appear to me by stepping out of it.
yet it made me feel good.
made me feel different.
not like the rest.
i didn't care.
i know how strange that sounds.
but it was just a dream.
i haven't had that dream or even thought about that in a very long time.
this reminds me of that.
makes me miss her.
though i guess i retain a little of her within.
being different i mean.
i love this image alot.
The makeup is well done - love the lips
