Boxed in by gilad Boxed in by gilad

Catching my breath,
Enough with the running
This city has boxed me in
Giving me the illusion of freedom

I've been running for days
Escaping the walls of my sanity
The city wants me to call it a home
Giving me the illusion of freedom

I look at the clouds forming above
Little power lines cross my mind
Trees are reaching out from the pavement
Giving me the illusion of freedom

All the cars, shops, buildings, crowd
Can't all of us open our eyes and see?
We are all boxed in this city
And we can't break free


****

This is my first submittion with my new camera. The Canon 5D. I'm really exited about it, and I think it will be a love story. I will still keep using my Nikon D70 for Infra Red shots, and for a back up camera, but The "Full frame" monster is something I'be been planning on for a long time, and I finally did it.

Canon 5D
Canon 17-40 lens
Tel Aviv, Israel.

What's with you and almost flawless reflections? =)

I like how this is "reversed", gives the composition a neat effect. Awesome job.
