THE FLAT CAPPED PHOTOGRAPHER

HONEST PHOTOGRAPHY FROM YORKSHIRE

The Flat Capped Photographer's first project on autistic spectrum disorders.

 

I AM AT HOME HERE

 

There is a time, a place where only the knowledge of ones self is enough.

When others pool empty thoughts, mirrored by their own reality,

I escape to another world.

 

The sun dips and the identity of immediacy can reveal itself to the humble.

Untangling myself from the growth that holds me, my eyes adjust to the darkness.

I am at home here.

 

To speak would be to brand one’s identity to the complex clarity of the surroundings.

All that is needed is a subtle glimpse to capture a fleeting second,

And my mind is fulfilled.

 

The outsider remains entangled; their initial thought is to flee this inhospitable land.

Escape futile, the darkness engulfs all they hold dear and sucks it into the night.

Time lurches to a halt.

 

Their mentality begs to conform as they play a part in a nightmare from which they will never wake.

With emotion tying them to the realities of a favoured way of life,

They are lost.

 

In an unknown place incoherent minds are lead astray and only a mask can reveal one’s inner being.

Reality is far from rational but it clings to the knowledge of truth.

I am at home here.
