Meanwhile the Mice Endure the Wheel... by 

This is a self portrait of what I feel like when I’m getting ready for work in the morning…

This quote from the song “Buried Alive” seems to sum it up quite nicely…

I can’t live in here for another day
Darkness has kept the light concealed
Grim as ever
Hold on to faith as I dig another grave
Meanwhile the mice endure the wheel
Real as ever
And I’m chained like a slave
Trapped in the dark
Slammed all the locks
Death calls my name
And it seems I’ve been buried alive” ~ Avenged Sevenfold, Buried Alive

Thank you Caption Fun Group for the feature!

Got into photography in the past few years as a hobby. Really into HDR and trying to make mine as good as some as the ones I see on here.

I shoot mainly with my Canon EOS 1000D camera.

  • Thank you very much. I got the idea for this picture last night around midnight.. took a few shots and edited it. It’s one of my favorites. Thanks for the awesome words, I’m really proud of it. Thanks for the feature as well. Means a lot.
