Don't Let Me Free

Suby In The House

See  policyofsubster

What is it to be free? Is it to grant freedom to? To free from confinement? Is it always necessarily a good thing?

Take this image for instance, does the viewer think the arm being held wants to be set free?

To set me free maybe the end of me. Hold me tight, "Don't Let Me Free"

:-( hairy arms... I say let them hairy arms go....with an aided push that is ;-)

Seriously speaking ...what is happening in this picture?
Suby & Sinem: The Skeeloooo, each to his own, in some parts of the world, this is sexy you know smile
This shot was taken at the Ganesh Festival I covered on Wednesday. This is a shot of a guy's arm on the right (he was immersing the Ganesh Visarjan idol into a lake) and the other 2 arms holding onto him so he would not fall into the lake. Would definitely would not have been a nice sight if they had let him go grin

Very special occasion for Hindus in India and around the world.

the image and words are powerful and needs time for consideration.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks Nev, I agree with you as a very special occasion was taken place here.

My first reaction to this photo is that the person is being held up (kind of like a person hanging from a cliff, and everyone is trying to keep a grip so they won't fall). That said, the grip could also be perceived as menacing. My second reaction when I saw this image was "nice wrist watch".
Suby & Sinem: You are right bro, he was sorta hanging over a lake here.

I'm not sure what to make of this one.

The perspective would suggest that the man being held is trying to flee, or is possibly being pulled in the other direction by persons or things unknown (out of the frame), but if you were to rotate the photo to portrait orientation, then it could be that they are holding onto him to keep him from falling.
Suby & Sinem: Laurie, you second guess is spot on smile

I agree with e etomi. A bit too much hair and sweat! ;-)

Well at least it's got everyone wondering and that's most of the idea. Looks like some adult baptism.
Suby & Sinem: Which was the aim, glad I pulled it off. I always say different veiwers WILL always interprete images in different ways, those that think because they percieve they have a WONDERFUL image, EVERYONE who views the image MUST think it's wonderful should learn something from this.

As I always say, it's all subjective, cause 30 other people have said how nice or how bad the image is does not mean I have to always side with the majority, Judge the image as one really sees it, be honest be truthfull, but for crying out loud, don't always dislike all images grin

Wow, Suby...very powerful. No, the arm does not want to be set free, he is being supported during a time of great need. At least, that was my first thought.

Hair...eewgh! Being a true lagos pikin, me thinks the guy is a pick-pocket and these guys have been chasing him for quite a bit (hence the sweat). Now, they are holding on to him whilst they look around hoping to sight a flatfoot on patrol. Sure, the guy wants to be free. Am I close?
Suby & Sinem: True Nigerian to the core, although I have to admit, me was seriously checking out that watch as well grin tongue

This photo screams so loud ~!!~
Suby & Sinem: Explain what you mean by that, been scratching me head trying to figure out what "screams so loud" means. Excuse this simpleton called the Subster grin

Hmmm! It does make me think what the motives are for the hand being held. Is it captive? Is it a friendly embrace? Is it a greeting? Not sure, especially the dynamic of 3 different people. Great photo. Mal
Suby & Sinem: Now made you think, good, thats the aim of the shot.

It was my first feeling when I saw this picture. It screams "help me!!" smile
this right hand is sweaty what makes this picture so real, like somebody on right side of this picture is in big trouble for longer time (not only to take this shoot). He can't fix it by hisself, need help.. and he get it.. finally strong supportsmile
thats how i understand this great shoot.. maybe im wrong, it's really striking.
Suby & Sinem: Thanks for the guess,

The deep processing gives a solid feel to your shot (for me). I wonder if the hand is controlling or simply a very warm handshake. Well done.

That's a very powerfull image, what if the hand holding you feels forceless...even though letting go would be the end of her as well...so depressed.

Has everyone missed the water on the hands and the look of a waterfall in the background. I wonder if he wants to saved from the water though as his fingers are open and loose. Maybe it's a ploy to grab the other watch as it's time to change his. Still I like, nice one Subster.
Suby & Sinem: I laughed when I read your comments hard, I was actually looking at the watch myself, would not have minded if it fell in my lap. grin

To quote Kris Kristofferson:

"Freedoms just another word for nothin left to lose,
And nothin aint worth nothin but its free,
Feelin good was easy, lord, when bobby sang the blues,
And buddy, that was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my bobby mcgee."

Great concept, though I think this image might work better as a monochrome.
Suby & Sinem: I will send you the monochrome version I did, I actually prefer the colour for one. smile

Looks like he is trying to hold on tight to the one he loves and getting a little from a friend.
